The Aston Villa vs West Ham live stream sees two sides who have enjoyed excellent starts to the new season meet as the high-flying home side face the Hammers at Villa Park today — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
Despite a slightly disappointing draw with Wolves before the international break, Aston Villa have been exceptional under Unai Emery in the opening months of the campaign. They’ve already dispatched Chelsea and thrashed Brighton, thanks in part to the superb form of Matty Cash, Moussa Diaby and Ollie Watkins.
Villa have also excelled at home under Emery and have now won 10 consecutive Premier League matches at Villa Park. Not only have they racked up the goals during this run, but they have been tight at the back with summer signing Pau Torres particularly impressing this season and forming a strong partnership with Ezri Konsa.
West Ham have also secured statement wins over Chelsea and Brighton in recent months and much like Villa, have been expertly handling the stress and strain that comes with playing in Europe. The Hammers have also coped with losing former captain Declan Rice to Arsenal, with new signings James Ward-Prowse, Mohammed Kudus and Edson Álvarez all catching the eye.
With Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen proving a real handful in attack, David Moyes will be confident that his side can bring an end to Villa’s brilliant run at home.
Starting XI: Martinez, Konsa, Kamara, Torres, Digne, Cash, Zaniolo, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Diaby, Watkins.
Subs: Carlos, Tielemans, Traore, Chambers, Lenglet, Olsen, Bailey, Dendoncker, Kellyman.
Starting XI: Areola, Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson, Ward-Prowse, Alvarez, Soucek, Paqueta, Bowen, Antonio.
Subs: Fabianski, Fornals, Kudus, Mavropanos, Ings, Ogbonna, Benrahma, Kehrer, Mubama.
