With the international break almost over with, West Ham United fans will return their focus to the Premier League campaign ahead of Monday night’s trip to Aston Villa.

The Hammers travel to Villa Park on the back of three consecutive wins, two coming in the league, and will be confident of securing a fourth.

Manuel Pellegrini’s six main defensive stars have pretty much maintained their place so far, with Declan Rice sitting in front of a back four and Lukasz Fabianski.

West Ham’s attacking set-up has been the subject of a few changes though, so it’s unclear who will line-up in that midfield four behind Sebastien Haller.

Mark Noble would appear to be undroppable, whilst the form of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko would also warrant starting places.

It’s difficult to predict though, with the array of quality available to Pellegrini on the bench – we want to know what you think though.

Have your say in our duel below and vote for the Hammers star that would be first on your team sheet in the weekend’s curtain-closer.
