THE TEAM NEWS

ASTON VILLA

  • It has been a mixed start for Aston Villa with just three points picked up so far but Dean Smith will want his men to find consistency now.
  • Following the disappointing loss to Crystal Palace, they will have to do without the suspended Trezeguet so El Ghazi will likely come in.
  • That is likely to be the only change however as Smith has been largely content with the performance of his team in their last two games.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Heaton; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Taylor; Douglas Luiz; Jota, McGinn, Grealish, El Ghazi; Wesley

Unavailable: Chester (Injured), Kodjia (Injured), Targett (Injured), Trezeguet (Suspended)

Doubtful:

WEST HAM

  • West Ham were showing signs of finding some form just before the international break with three wins in a row in all competitions.
  • Manuel Pellegrini will be heartened by their recent performances and will likely name an unchanged side from that which beat Norwich.
  • Lanzini made the long trip to the States to play for Argentina but Pellegrini is likely to start him given his good start to the season.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Masuaku; Noble, Rice; Yarmolenko, Lanzini, Felipe Anderson; Haller

Unavailable: Reid (Injured), Antonio (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

The special atmosphere for Villa's last league match at home on an evening in front of the television cameras helped them beat Everton 2-0 and they will look to replicate that on Monday night. West Ham are in good form however and this match could go either way but expect goals at both ends.
