Irons face stern test against away day specialists

West Ham face a serious test against Aston Villa away day specialists tonight (Mon).

If the Hammers beat Dean Smith’s men they could go as high as fifth, above the likes of Manchester United, Everton and Manchester City.

David Moyes’ men have fallen to 11th after the weekend’s results.

Smith’s side, though, are essential the definition of a banana skin at top-flight level.

In eight games this season, they have won five and lost three, taking some genuinely significant scalps along the way.

They thumped Arsenal 3-0 on the road, beat Leicester City away from home, and battered Liverpool 7-2 at Villa Park.

While they have only played three games away from home, they have won them all.

The Hammers, by comparison, have a mixed home record, winning two, drawing one, and losing one of their four.

Villa, then,cpould be poised to burst the Irons’ bubble and  we’ll have to be at their very best to take all three points.

  1. Hard game to call for sure ,,cant believe we dropped to 11th after the games at weekend

  2. Actually, the results have been ideal — every team ahead of us going into the weekend either drew or lost — and Leicester are keeping that streak alive. A win will move us up to 5th and put us right in contention for a CL spot.
