West Ham face Aston Villa on Sunday in a match the visitors needs to win in order to keep their important top four position in the Premier League.

Their meeting at the London Stadium last season ended in a 1-1 draw, while Villa secured a 4-1 win at home in October this season.

Chris Sutton’s prediction for the match is a 1-2 away win to Aston Villa . You will get odds around 9.00 on that betting tips if you are into betting on football.

“Both these teams were in action in Europe on Thursday, and it is going to be interesting to see how much those ties take out of them – but I still think Aston Villa will win this one,” BBC Sport football expert Chris Sutton said.

“Villa have more quality than the Hammers, as they showed when they beat them 4-1 in October.

“Unai Emery’s side always create chances and, even in their 4-0 defeat against Tottenham last time out, if they had been more clinical then it would have been a very different game.”
