Our Prediction:

Durham (W) will win

Durham (W) – Aston Villa (W) Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 07:00

Summer signing Douglas Luiz is likely to make his first start for Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend. The Cherries, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United at their Vitality Stadium and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that Eddie Howes men are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Villa Park.

The Villans are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home ground, but beating the Blues, who have found their form of late, is easier said than done. As expected, Aston Villa defeated Burton Albion at their Villa Park at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run in the Championship to six games. There will be fireworks when Aston Villa and Birmingham City face each other in the Second City derby and, one thing is for sure, both teams are going to leave their hearts on the field in Sunday's football match. Birmingham City head into the local derby following back-to-back wins over the likes of Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday and we predict that they are going to grab something from the Villa Park showdown. The Villans are determined to return to the Premier League, where they undisputedly belong, but coach Steve Bruce must warn his men against complacency.

Sbastien Haller is the player Im most excited to see as he scored three goals in their two most recent Premier League matches. Michail Antonio has just undergone leg surgery, and Winston Reid is still recovering from a serious knee injury, so they wont be able to help their teammates on Monday. The visitors are also having some trouble with injuries.

Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa Prediction

The flamboyant winger is playing in top form and his price continues to rise. The Eagles biggest star Wilfried Zaha is definitely the one man we should all keep an eye on. Roy Hodgson should have all of his players fit and ready for this clash. Moreover, the Parisians are ready to make him a direct replacement for Neymar. PSG have become the latest in a line of clubs keeping tabs on him.

The Cherries, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United at their Vitality Stadium and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that Eddie Howes men are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Villa Park. Summer signing Douglas Luiz is likely to make his first start for Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend.

However, their last fixture was played more than a year ago, and a lot has changed since then. So after carefully looking into their recent form, performances and other important factors, I believe that this time we will see more goals on both sides and that the visitors will grab all three points. We didnt see many goals in those clashes, the Villans scored 3 and the Hammers scored 6 goals. In their last 5 H2H meetings, the visitors were victorious twice, the hosts once, and twice we saw a match without the winner.

Following spells with Manchester City, Bury and Sheffield Wednesday, the defensive midfielder found his peace at the Britannia Stadium, making over 250 Premier League appearances for Stoke City and keeping his place in the side under both Tony Pulis and Mark Hughes. Predominantly focused on doing the dirty defensive work and helping out the back four, Whelan never quite made the headlines for his style of play or quality of his displays, but remained an important player for both club and country.

Highlighted Player (Marvelous Nakamba):

The club chiefs did well to spend over 150 million on signings in the summer transfer window, but the Villans main goal is to secure the Premier League survival. It is well known that Aston Villa produce much better displays at home than on the travels, therefore, we believe that there is a certain value in betting on Dean Smiths troops. Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Tottenham when they host Bournemouth at their Villa Park on Matchday 2.

Lets see what happens. Here, were thinking that Aston Villa will have to play well to hit the back of the net against this Everton side who we think will do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead. Thats why we have predicted a good tussle with a 0-1 advantage for Everton after 90 minutes. Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Aston Villa v Everton are shown on this page - plus the latest match odds.

After 4 matches they are almost at the bottom of the table, in 18th place, with 3 points and 4:6 goal difference. The season just began, so they still have the time, but they need to improve their game a lot to prevent returning to the EFL Championship. In the last 5 matches in all competitions, the Villans, as they are universally known won 2 and lost 3, while scoring 10 and conceding 7 goals. This time they will have a home-ground advantage working for them, still, I dont believe theyll be able to outscore their opponents, however, theyll most likely score at least one goal. Aston Villa is one of the returnees to Premier League this season, and they arent doing so well lately.
