The Premier League is finally back.

After a lengthy absence through the international break, West Ham finally return to action, however, Hammers’ fans must wait until Monday night before seeing their team in action.

West Ham saw the international break come at an inconvenient time for the club, where seven points in their last three games saw a bit of momentum building. Those points saw the Hammers rise up to 7th in the table, albeit there due to goal difference.

Manuel Pellegrini will hope to see his side continue that good run of form on Monday night and will face an interesting Aston Villa side.

Villa were tipped for the drop and have only found three points in their first four games, however, they were robbed of what could be a crucial point last time out against Crystal Palace and have played some decent football.

Villa Park away under the lights will be no easy task, and Pellegrini will hope for a rejuvenated side following the international break.

Here is the starting XI I believe Pellegrini will select against Aston Villa:
