West Ham United will entertain Aston Villa at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon hoping to pick up at least a point from this home clash. The Hammers managed to play out a 1-1 draw against Manchester United in midweek which would give them a confidence boost heading into this weekend’s clash versus the Villans.
David Moyes will probably stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and might keep changes to a minimum for this league encounter at the English capital.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Aston Villa
Łukasz Fabiański will keep his spot in goal for the Hammers after conceding just one goal versus the Red Devils in midweek. Both Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop will operate at the heart of the West Ham backline as they try to keep Aston Villa’s Mbwana Samatta quiet throughout the 90 minutes.
Ben Johnson could get another opportunity to impress as the right-back while Aaron Cresswell looks to produce another industrious performance on the other flank as the left-back. Moyes will instruct both of them to maintain a solid defensive shape so that they can keep things tight at the back this weekend.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will assume the roles of the holding midfielders as they focus on establishing their dominance at the centre of the park. The talented trio of Pablo Fornals, Mark Noble and Jarrod Bowen will play just ahead of them as part of the West Ham attack.
Noble has been a real revelation while operating as a free-flowing attacking midfielder in recent matches, so he will be expected to carry most of the creative burden for his team on Sunday. However, Bowen is a slight worry for this game, so Andriy Yarmolenko might feature on the right flank if the English playmaker fails to recover in time for this clash versus the West Midlands outfit.
Michail Antonio has been enjoying the form of his life at West Ham in recent matches, so he will fancy his chances of getting his name on the scoresheet while leading the charge for the Hammers up top. He has scored six goals in his past three starts, which makes him a potent threat against the Villans this weekend.
