Aston Villa vs West Ham: The Hammers will try to strengthen their hold on a top-four place in the Premier League when they visit Villa Park on Sunday (Watch live at 12:30 pm ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
David Moyes’ men enter matchweek 10 two points clear of Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur in 5th and 6th places, respectively. Last time out, it was a 1-0 victory over Tottenham at the London Stadium, as Michail Antonio got the best of Harry Kane head-to-head on a corner kick. The victory put to bed a period of inconsistent results for West Ham, who hadn’t won back-to-back Premier League games since the season’s first two weeks, ahead of the derby triumph.
As for Aston Villa, Dean Smith’s side is mired in a three-game losing skid at the moment after conceding eight combined goals against three quality opponents in Tottenham, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal. Aston Villa’s victory at Old Trafford looked like a potential turning point for the club’s future, but there’s been not a single sign of joy in the four weeks since.
