West Ham confidence should be sky high following the brilliant Norwich performance – and while not taking a thing for granted as Villa will be a challenge – I’m expecting another top performance and victory.
And Manuel Pellegrini has said that although Villa have some good attacking players and a manager who wants to play an offensive game they must adjust to the PL.
Speaking at his presser he said: “Last season we played a lot of games and lost against the teams around us. Now we will see as Aston Villa has a good team and a difficult stadium but we will go there and try to win. That is our only target now.
“Aston Villa is a team which has had different results and has bought a lot of good players after returning to the Premier League. They have a lot of attacking players and a manager who wants to play in an attacking style but they must adapt.”
As we go for our third successive PL victory Villa could be missing four players , according to PremierInjuries.com with Jonathan Kodija suffering a head injury, and Trezeguet is suspended for a match after the Crystal Palace game.
With the Hammers at near full strength I am expecting another three points with Haller and Anderson scoting the goals in a 0-2 win.
