Westham (2) vs Aston Villa (1) – This was one of the fixtures that took place in yesterday’s matchday.
Westham vs Aston Villa was one of those fixtures that is difficult to predict which direction the game will go as both teams were not far off each other before the game.

Aston Villa has cooled off from their red-hot start to the season. They started the season very strongly, raising a lot of eyebrows for their fabulous start and number of consecutive wins, occupying the top position for a while.
However, things has cooled off for them as they are now struggling to string a couple of wins together.
Their last 5 premier league matches have seen them with 4 losses and 1 win, which means only 3 points from 15 points.
It is a bad result if you factor in that they were once looking like a team to cause a shocker this season, however, if you also consider that they were in the relegation battle last season, their current position isn’t bad at all.
Angelo Ogbonna gave the hammers the lead just 2 minutes into the match.
Jack Grealish equalized for Aston Villa on the 25th minute. Jarrod Bowen restored the westham lead on the 46th minute to win the match for Westham.
