West Ham Utd. – Aston Villa

Report by Dusko Koricanac

The Hammers appear for a first house win

West Ham opened the current time with an absent win from Hull City (two-), but given that then they’ve noticed eleven competitive video games (9 in Premier) with out a single win. Club solved a dilemma in attacking line by bringing Italian Alessandro Diamanti, but recent problem is defense line that are leaking too significantly objectives. West Ham conceded 14 targets in very last 6 games in Premier! However, their performance looks better than benefits. Two two-two attracts, against Arsenal at property and Sunderland on the street, deliver the desire for better long run. At their residence, Boleyn Ground (commonly known as Upton Park), Hammers have two draws and two defeats and desperately will need a win that would move them from the relegation zone. On that job will be without having midfielder Radoslav Kovac who is suspended following his current sending off in opposition to Sunderland, while Kieron Dyer continues to be on injury checklist with a hamstring issue. But, large increase for team’s morale will be a return of key midfielder Scott Parker.

The dream seems so close

The Villains took only two points from last 3 games on the road (Blackburn Rovers one-2, Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 and Everton one-one), but even now hold a large place in Premier and win at East London would start them on location range four. Champions League spot is a target for Villa in last number of a long time and tonight could be only the further motive. Even so, Villa glimpse in not so very good shape currently (after win over Chelsea 2-1) and currrently Upton Park seems like a tough spot to go. Norwegian John Carew place a excellent screen against Everton and he’s expected to begin the game in assault alongside outstanding Gabriel Agbonlahor. Supervisor Martin O’Neill will have some problems in midfield as Stiliyan Petrov and James Milner are carrying the knocks. They’ll confront a late fitness check, while Nigel Reo-Coker (ex West Ham) and Fabian Delph are standing by to substitute them. And whilst this duo could be changed without as well considerably difficulties, headache for O’Neill is suspension of his key defender, Carlos Cuellar at correct-back again. Villa are unbeaten in their very last 6 meetings with West Ham (three wins and 3 attracts).

Different motives at Upton Park

West Ham chase a initial residence win to run from the bottom, Villa want a move to Champions League spot, equally sides won’t be satisfied with 1 position. Hosts will attack, but I doubt their protection can avoid killer duo Carew- Agbonlahor. Bet on goals seems like a logic conclusion.
