Aston Villa will entertain West Ham United at Villa Park on Sunday evening as they look to return to winning ways in the Premier League. The Villans suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal last weekend, so they will be eager to put on a much-improved showing versus the Hammers.

Dean Smith will probably set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Jacob Ramsey and Leon Bailey will get the nod to play from the start at the expense of Emiliano Buendia and Axel Tuanzebe.

4-3-3 Aston Villa Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United


Emiliano Martinez will function in goal for the Villans after conceding three goals in his last league start. Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings will operate as the centre-halves for Aston Villa in this game. They will both have to defend well and keep West Ham’s Michail Antonio frustrated throughout the game.

Matt Targett will assume the duties of a left-back while Matty Cash fills in on the other side as the right-back. Both of them will be given the license to get forward and express themselves on the counter.

Axel Tuanzebe might have to settle for a place on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.

Jacob Ramsey, Douglas Luiz and John McGinn will make up Dean Smith’s midfield as they look to win some of the 50-50 duels and disrupt the opposition’s rhythm in the game at the centre of the park.

Morgan Sanson and Marvelous Nakamba are expected to be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if needed.


Ollie Watkins will function as a makeshift winger on the left flank while Leon Bailey hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the right-sided wide player. Danny Ings will lead the charge for the West Midlands outfit down the middle. Smith would hope that his frontmen can cause some problems for the West Ham centre-halves on the counter.

Emiliano Buendia will have to be content with a place on the Villans bench as he awaits his chance to make an impact in the final quarter of the game. However, Keinan Davis is a major doubt for this game and will be in a race against time to be fit for this match.
