Aston Villa will welcome West Ham United on Monday evening at Villa Park as they look to secure a much-needed victory.
According to Express and Star, these are the three Hammers that will stand in the way of the Villans as they aim to come away with three points.
Sebastien Haller 🇫🇷 🇨🇮
Haller is currently sitting on 15 goals from 23 league appearances during the 2017/18 season and these statistics should be enough to shake things up for Aston Villa.
To make his statistics the sweeter, Haller involved himself in nine assists from 32 chances and the Express & Star tip him to be the player who will make it difficult in tonight's fixture.
Manuel Lanzini 🇦🇷
Lanzini lost the first seven months of last season due to injury but he has certainly made it known that he is here to stay and no time is lost for him when he steps on to the pitch.
The Argentina international has two assists so far and he will be looking to keep up on his current form and cause havoc in the midfield - Manuel Pellegrini has previously expressed his delight in securing the 26-year-old's services.
Felipe Anderson 🇧🇷
The Brazil international is one player who has been deemed inconsistent but his talent is something you cannot doubt on the day he steps up to the plate.
However, Anderson has managed to secure two assists from West Ham's last three games and Pellegrini will be hoping that the 26-year-old shows his true form when they take on Aston Villa.
The pundits have tipped Anderson to open the scoring line and if the Hammers manage to score first in the first half, they should be able to boost their confidence and keep up their momentum despite playing away from home.
