AVL vs WHU Dream11 : West Ham look to propel themselves into third place today as the side draw a close to gameweek 5 in the premier league
Things started on an adverse footing for West Ham United with Manchester City making a mockery of them as they were defeated 5-0 in their opening match of the season but ever since then, the side have done extremely well to sit in 9th place ahead of today’s encounter. With two wins on the bounce, West Ham United could go as high as third today if they are able to record their third successive win, massive impetuous for them early into the season.
Having been underachievers for two seasons now despite spending massively on their squad, for West Ham, the prospect of moving into third is bound to garner immense momentum into the side. It’s a narrative which would have been unfathomable for the side when the newest edition of the Premier League took bath but with a 2-0 win over Watford followed by a 2-0 win over Norwich City, West Ham have done well to silence their doubters.
Elsewhere their opponents of the day, Aston Villa, sit in 17th spot with just the one win from four encounters. With just the one win in four matches, they have been cleaned apart by everyone and West ham United would be making an advent in today’s encounter quietly confident of sweeping up the three points and continuing their up rise in the frontier league.
AVL vs WHU Match Prediction
The one area where West Ham United came under massive flak for the last two seasons was their inability to use the nous of attacking skill set at their disposal. However the signing of some good players this season has seemed to have quelled that notion with the side’s defence complimenting the attacking unit perfectly to shut down their last two opponents completely.
It’s this complete nature of the side at the moment which should guide the side to another win today, one they should find relatively easy to come.

Our goal-keeping choice was an easy one to make with us not having to look further away than Tom Heaton for this one.

The two are pivotal to not only the sides defence but have been given a free hand to express themselves freely up the park as well and can be persistently spotted making a foray into their sides attacks.

AVL vs WHU Dream11 Strikers
West Ham’s leading goal scorer with three goals till now, Sebastien Haller becomes the first player to be picked up by us for this prevelant encounter.
