Preview: Aston Villa vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole previews this weekend's Premier League encounter between struggling Aston Villa and West Ham United.

This weekend's Premier League clash brings two sides struggling for wins together in the form of Aston Villa and West Ham United.

The Midlands club are in danger of getting relegated from the top flight due to their second-from-bottom place in the table, while the Hammers are secure in the middle of the table, but have the chance to move into the top 10 with a victory.

With regards to current form, Villa have been dismal on home turf, taking just one point from their last five matches, while the former Championship outfit have lost four consecutive trips away from Upton Park.

Villa boss Paul Lambert is likely to leave out Darren Bent in favour of Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor, while Hammers manager Sam Allardyce could keep Andy Carroll up top following his winning goal against Swansea City last Saturday.
