It's 15th versus 17th, as West Ham host a rejuvenuated Aston Villa side who have picked up form at the right time this summer. Sunday's visitors are unbeaten in three (W2, D1) – having not won in their previous 11 games, dating back to January.

Can they assure Premier League safety this weekend against similarly tough opposition here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

West Ham vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

Trezeguet's first-half strike arrowed into the bottom corner and despite being starved of possession (31), Dean Smith's side battled hard to earn three points against Arsenal. For context, this was the same Gunners side who beat Liverpool and Manchester City in a four-day span last week.

Villa's last win over the north Londoners was back on the opening weekend of the 2013-14 campaign. Since then, they've had seven H2H meetings and conceded 23 in that time.

So yeah, this victory meant a lot – not least for a side battling to stay in the top-flight after a dismal campaign. Jack Grealish was, somewhat unsurprisingly, their Man of the Match and speculation persists over the midfielder's future.

Questions were asked: was that his final captain's performance at Villa Park? If it was, he did himself justice – four interceptions, three successful dribbles and key passes, one big chance created.

West Ham present a different type of challenge, especially given their recent form. Also unbeaten in three, they boast an in-form quartet: Angelo Ogbonna, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice and Michail Antonio.

West Ham vs Aston Villa Correct Score Predictions

Had Sunday's hosts not beaten Chelsea and drawn with Manchester United, this fixture would be even more of an intriguing encounter. Instead, the Hammers' Premier League status is already secure before kick-off and it'll be interesting to see whether they play with that confidence here.

Aston Villa need a victory to secure their safety – regardless of what happens elsewhere in London this weekend, which isn't a foregone conclusion. I'm going for BTTS here.
