Read West Ham’s verdict
To go into next weekend’s clash against Manchester United in third place on the back of three consecutive league victories would provide a monumental boost.
It’s widely known the current squad at Manuel Pellegrini’s disposal is the most exciting it’s been in a while and boy, is that showing.
Villa haven’t made the best of starts to the campaign, but West Ham will need to carefully go about their business under the lights at a tough place to visit.
