Aston Villa

Last updated: Tue 17 September 2019 08:45
In Brief

Only league win so far achieved at home. Captain Chester, Targett and Kodjia remain out. Trezeguet suspended.

Looking Back

Villains started life in Premier League with not much success, lost 3 of 4 games, but at least on home turf have been competitive so far.

Using wings a lot in early rounds, with more than 68% of their attacks up to now coming down the 2 flanks. The full-back play key part in forward actions with their overlapping runs.

Looking Ahead

Coach Smith still without injured Chester, Targett and Kodjia + now he will be missing suspended Trezeguet.

McGinn started season very well and also impressed while on international duty, making him crucial figure for Villa in heart of midfield.

Points of Interest

Villa top of the entire league in terms of Clearances – 27.3 per game after 4 rounds.

West Ham United

Last updated: Tue 17 September 2019 08:45
In Brief

Gathering pace after 3 consecutive wins. Silva, Reid and Antonio set to miss.

Looking Back

West Ham on the roll after 3 wins in last 3 outings, 1 of those in League Cup. Scored 2 goals or more in all of these victories.

Haller already proving his efficiency as new main centre forward with 3 goals in 3 starts.

Looking Ahead

Coach Pellegrini hopes that none of his internationals will return injured and if this is the case he will continue missing only Silva, Reid and Antonio.

Yarmolenko looking for third consecutive start and Ukrainian quickly establishing as important pierce of the forward quartet. Ajeti should be used much more from now on too after Hernandez was sold on deadline day.

Points of Interest

Hammers have scored 3 of their 6 league goals so far in the minutes between 60-75! Yet to score in final 15 minutes of either half.
