Predicted Aston Villa and West Ham United line-ups

Here are the potential teams for Aston Villa against West Ham United this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 9th May 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Odds: Aston Villa 1/1, Draw 13/5, West Ham 10/3

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood will be keen for his team to keep up their momentum this weekend against West Ham after a dramatic and hard fought victory in their last game against Everton.

Villa are not clear of danger near the bottom of the table, but a win this weekend moves them onto 38 points, which eases a little bit of the pressure heading into the club’s final two league games.

Sherwood will want his team to make the most of their home advantage and to start well against a West Ham team, which will be up for the fight.

The Hammers have been struggling to play anything close to their best football in recent weeks, but manager Sam Allardyce will likely look to use the confidence of a win against Burnley last weekend to their advantage.

The Hammers will have to take a lot of pressure in this game and will need to deal with Christian Benteke effectively to keep the team in the match and out of trouble.

A win for West Ham could see them close the gap on Swansea in the top eight to three points if other results go their way.
