The Hammers will take on relegation-threatened Villa away from home at Villa Park in the Premier League.
“You can’t go into any game thinking it’s going to be an easy three points, even if you’re one of the top teams,” the left-back told West Ham’s official website. “The league has been crazy this year and you can see anyone can beat anyone.
“We’re fully aware that it’s not going to be an easy ride so we’re going to prepare for Villa and do the best we can.”
West Ham will head into the game on the back of a goalless draw with Swansea City away from home at the Liberty Stadium.
Failure to pick up all three points in Wales on Sunday evening means that Slaven Bilic’s have not won a competitive game of football since October 24, when they got the better of Chelsea 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground.
On Boxing Day, the Hammers will get the perfect chance to put an end to the run of seven league games without a win.
Villa are stranded at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment and have picked up just seven points from 17 games.
