Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Aston Villa v West Ham

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts West Ham’s Monday game against Aston Villa at Villa Park .

Aston Villa have only got three points to show from their first four games, but I have seen plenty of encouraging signs from Dean Smith’s side. They are still settling down, but I think he has bought some very talented players over the summer.

Villa will also be angry after they were denied an equaliser against Crystal Palace last time out for what was judged to be a dive by Jack Grealish.

That is an example of how, with a little bit more luck, they would have picked up more points.

West Ham are improving too, and are unbeaten since the opening day, with new signing Sebastien Haller getting among the goals.

This one will be close, but I am going to go with Villa to make their home advantage count.

Lawrenson’s prediction:  2-1

  1. Oh suprise ! Villa to win. ML has a poor opinion of West Ham. He still thinks we are southern softies & will roll over. Villa are improving, but the hammers have some class players that will turn the game. 0-2 win for the Hammers in my opinion.
