West Ham United host Aston Villa on the final day of the 2019/20 Premier League season. This is probably going to be the most interesting encounter on the final day of the season as Aston Villa look to perform a miracle and save themselves from relegation.
Aston Villa is coming off an incredible 1-0 victory against Arsenal which has put them in the driver's seat to save themselves from relegation. Because of Watford's 4-0 defeat to Manchester City earlier that day, Aston Villa's victory has allowed them to go ahead in the league due to goal difference. Aston Villa needs to ensure they do not lose here as a defeat could lead to their relegation. Watford is meeting Arsenal at the same time, and if Watford gets anything out of that match, then it is going to be very important for Aston Villa to give it their everything here.
West Ham United put on a solid performance against Manchester United earlier in the week, securing a draw and ensuring their Premier League safety. West Ham now have nothing to play for anymore as they cannot be relegated and in my opinion they might take their foot off the gas here. West Ham will be now looking towards next season and what signings they can make to improve their position for the 2020/21 Premier League season.
The reverse fixture between these two sides ended in 0-0 draw, with West Ham's Authur Masuaku receiving a red card in the 67th minute. West Ham are not going to give it their all here, whilst Aston Villa are going to go all out to ensure their safety. Aston Villa put on a solid performance against Arsenal, and I think they will not want to take West Ham too lightly. I expect Aston Villa to put incredible pressure on the hammers and take this match by the hands. Aston Villa are a historical Premier League team and they know they deserve to be in the Premier League after struggling in the Championship for the last few seasons. Take Aston Villa at +130 to get the win and secure safety.
