West Ham will be looking to continue their excellent recent form when they host Aston Villa at the London Stadium this evening.
David Moyes’ Hammers have lost just one of their last seven games despite facing some tough fixtures in that run, and had risen to eighth in the Premier League table heading into the weekend’s action.
That is one place, and one point, below their opponents, whose form has slipped after a terrific start to the campaign.
Dean Smith’s men have lost three of their last four in the Premier League, but did earn a superb win against Arsenal on their last visit to the capital.
West Ham predicted lineup (3-4-3): Fabianski; Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku; Bowen, Fornals, Haller
With kick-off scheduled for 8pm GMT, follow all the action on our LIVE blog with Jack Rosser at London Stadium.
Prediction: 2-2 draw
Both sides will feel they can get three points here, which could turn it into an absolute thriller. An early goal would suggest a few more, and we’re going for a high-scoring point apiece.

Villa will be without Ross Barkley, who has impressed on loan from Chelsea, after he was injured last weekend.
