Aston Villa handed boost ahead of West Ham United clash

Aston Villa made it three wins out of three in midweek thanks to a 3-0 victory over Leeds United at Elland Road, putting them in a good place to take on West Ham United tomorrow for their latest Premier League fixture.

Heading into the game at the London Stadium, it seems as though the Villans have been handed a boost that will surely give them a good chance of securing yet another win.

What’s the news?

Speaking in his recent press conference, Hammers manager David Moyes revealed that winger Jarrod Bowen will not be involved in Sunday’s game, having been absent since sustaining a knock during the Irons’ fixture away to Liverpool last weekend.

Who did Aston Villa beat in their 1st Premier League win of 2021?

Taking into account how the Englishman has racked up 12 goals and 11 assists in 39 appearances for the east London club across all competitions so far this season, it’s safe to say that he has been a crucial figure for his side, who will now be disappointed to not have him available to take on Steven Gerrard’s side.

To further highlight the winger’s impressive attacking form in his latest campaign with the Hammers, only Mohamed Salah (41), Harry Kane (35) and Heung-min Son (28) have made more shots at goal in the league than Bowen (27)

In addition to the eight goals and eight assists he’s delivered in 28 league appearances in this campaign, the 25-year-old has also managed to earn himself an overall performance rating of 7.23/10, making him the highest-rated player in Moyes’ squad according to WhoScored.

Gerrard will be delighted

Given how much of a deadly attacking threat Bowen has been for his team this season, Gerrard will surely be pleased to hear that the winger won’t be lining up against Villa tomorrow, which would definitely give the Midlands club a better chance of potentially keeping their fourth clean sheet in a row if they were to stop the home side from scoring.

Are you confident Villa can beat West Ham?

Yes

No

No

However, with Moyes still having the likes of Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma at his disposal who have scored a combined total of 18 league goals between them in this campaign, the Villans will have to stay on their toes at the back if they want to stop the Hammers from scoring.
