Paul Merson has offered his prediction for the Premier League match between West Ham and Aston Villa, set to take place at Villa Park on Sunday. West Ham currently occupies the 7th position in the table, having had an impressive start to the season. Meanwhile, Aston Villa is in the 5th place, making this one of the most highly anticipated games of the weekend.
During an interview with Sportskeeda on October 20th, Merson noted that both teams are “unpredictable” but favored the home team to secure a win due to their home advantage. He said, “This is a good game between two teams that can be unpredictable but are having very good seasons.
It could go either way. Villa are going to have a go at West Ham, and David Moyes would love that because West Ham is excellent on the counter. West Ham is difficult to beat, and players like Bowen and Antonio can be dangerous. Aston Villa is playing at home, however, and I’m going to back them to win this game. Aston Villa 2-1 West Ham United.”
