Matchday 29

West Ham United v Aston Villa

London Stadium

Sunday, 13 March 2022
Kick-off is at 17h00  
West Ham will be aiming to get their top-four challenge back on track when they welcome Aston Villa to the London Stadium on Sunday, March 13.
David Moyes' side saw their four-match unbeaten run come to an end with a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last Saturday.
The Hammers slipped to sixth in the Premier League table as a result and they trail fourth-placed Arsenal by three points, but having played three games more.

Moyes was buoyed by the performance of his players on Merseyside and he feels the east Londoners are heading in the right direction.
"Good performances lead to good results in the main," the Scot said. "I thought today's was a good performance, so if we can keep the standard up... and there are signs that our football is beginning to come back playing a bit better."
The Villans continue to make strides under Steven Gerrard and they comfortably beat Southampton 4-0 last weekend to record-back-to-back wins.
Villa are kept out of the top 10 on goal difference as they are tied with 10th-placed Crystal Palace on 33 points with two games in hand.

Gerrard was full of praise for the way his players performed against the Saints, although he has urged them to keep hold of the ball more when in command of matches.
"I want us to be more of a possession-based team when we get ourselves into a comfortable position," he said. "But look, that's me just nit-picking and I'm fine-tuning... I've got nothing but praise for the players."
