It’s all set for a claret and blue derby on Monday night, as Dean Smith’s Aston Villa head to West Ham.

The Villains have come off the rails a bit in recent weeks, with just one win in four, and the former Brentford boss will need to rotate to arrest their worrying dip in form.

However, with seven stars sidelined through injury, his options are reduced ahead of the trip to the capital.

Conor Hourihane could come in to stiffen up the midfield, with fit again Bertrand Traore in line to replace Ross Barkley in attack.

The hosts head into this on the back of some solid form, with back to back 1-0 wins over Fulham and Sheffield United.

And that consistency means David Moyes is set to stick with the old reliable here and name an unchanged team for the third game in a row.

And it’s a late one to wrap up the Premier League weekend with an 8pm start at the London Stadium.
