Our Prediction:

Durham (W) will win

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

Matt Targett suffered a hamstring injury and Jonathan Kodjia just got back from an ankle injury, to get injured again. Dean Smith will have a bit of a problem with picking his starting eleven because two of his men are unavailable. This time he clashed with his teammate Marvelous Nakamba during the training and ended up with a fractured cheekbone.

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.

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.

Highlighted Player (Glenn Whelan):

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.

The hosts want to build upon their win over Manchester United and I see them as favourites here. Therefore, make sure to go through my match preview to get the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this event. Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa prediction brings forward all the important information ahead of the Premier League clash at the Selhurst Park in London this Friday.

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.

West Ham, also called the Hammers had a good start this season. Moreover, in their most recent 5 matches, they scored 8 and conceded 7 goals, which averages to over 2.5 goals per match, so I suggest backing that betting option in the upcoming game. After 4 matches they are in the 7th place in the standings, with 7 points and 6:7 goal difference. Out of those 4 games, they kept a clean sheet twice. They are currently on a four-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, and they are looking forward to continuing that success.

Aston Villa vs Birmingham City PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 11/02/2018

Therefore, the Villans, as they are universally known, will have a difficult time running away with anything from Selhurst Park. Aston Villa did actually lose only 2 of their last 9 matches. On the other side, Aston Villa are also high on confidence following their 2-0 win over Everton. Therefore, the last weekends triumph will do wonders for their self-confidence. However, five of those were friendly encounters which have little value in any serious match preview. The Premier League returnees lost the two opening games to Tottenham and Bournemouth, respectively.

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.

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.
