Aston Villa are looking to save themselves from relegation and a home game against a West Ham team with little to play for is a good match up. Tim Sherwood's side were excellent last week when they beat a good Everton team 3-2. With Grealish, Delph and Benteke finally finding their form the Villans look likely to save themselves from relegation but it is going to take a big effort over the next three games to ensure that Aston Villa are still in the Premier League next season.
West Ham are stuck in limbo for the next three games, they have little to play for are going to stay mid table but they will not want to slip out of the top half and Sam Allardyce will be trying to get his side to finish strongly to give Big Sam a bargaining chip for the off season. West Ham have struggled with injureis all season with Andy Carroll missing most of the season and now Sakho carrying a knock as well. Valencia, Downing and Song will be key to West Hams chances of picking up a win in Villa Park.
With the current teams position and the needs of each teams respectively I cant do anything but take Aston Villa to win here. I dont like the price of 9/10 on a team that for me is too poor to rely on. With both teams prefering a traditional get down the wing and play it into the striker style of play I am going to take the overs in the corners market. Over 10 corners is evens and we could see this one go to 13 or 14 corners , especially if Villa are dominating and pressing as Villa will look to use the width and get the ball into Benteke.
