Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Aston Villa quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Burnley, with the team beating Southampton on the road on Matchday 21. The Villans aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Wednesday’s football game. Both Hause and Wesley are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. As always, a man to watch in the home side will be Jack Grealish.
The Hammers, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Mane-less Liverpool. West Ham United face yet another difficult task in the midweek fixture, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Villa’s party at Villa Park. Defender Arthur Masuaku has yet to recovery from a knee injury, while goalkeeper Darren Randolph should be fit to face the VIllans. Anyhow, home win should be considered as West Ham were anything but impressive in their last league match.
Highlighted Player (Anwar el Ghazi):
Anwar El Ghazi is a product of famous Ajax football academy and it has to be noted that he scored 20 goals in 70 matches for the first team from 2014 to 2017. El Ghazi played for the likes of BVV Barendrecht, Feyenoord, Spartaan ’20 and Sparta Rotterdam during his youth career as well and, speaking of the first-team football, he moved to Ligue 1 side Lille in January 2017 for a fee of €8 million.
The pacey winger scored one goal in 12 appearances for les Dogues in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign, but, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of the former Ajax starlet. Seeing that he has a dual citizenship, Anwar El Ghazi is eligible to represent both Netherlands and Morocco at senior level, but he made his debut for the Orange in a 2-1 win over Kazakhstan, with the Lille winger starting the match in a 4-3-3 formation alongside Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Memphis Depay.
Anwar El Ghazi is capable of playing as a centre-forward as well and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (West Ham):
West Ham United are an English football club based in East London. The club was founded in 1895 and it has to be noted that the club’s name was Thames Ironworks back then. The Hammers were playing their home games at Upton Park from 1904 until 2016, when they moved to the Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
West Ham have won three FA Cup trophies (1964, 1975 and 1980) and they were runners-up in 1923 and 2006. The capital club finished the 1985/1986 England first division campaign in third place in the standings and that is the club’s highest placing in the top flight. West Ham United have strong rivalries with fellow London clubs, but Tottenham Hotspur are considered the club’s main rivals.
A number of top-class players were part of West Ham in the past and the likes of Joe Cole, Carlos Tevez, Paolo Di Canio, Paul Ince, Julian Dicks, Shaka Hislop, Michael Carrick and Slaven Bilic are some of them.
