Aston Villa and West Ham take part in the final game of the Premier League weekend.
The claret and blue derby should be a cracker this season, with both teams hoping to make a push for a European spot.
Villa have lost their last three games after their fantastic 1-0 victory against Manchester United and manager Dean Smith will hope to rectify that sooner rather than later..

His team have only managed to keep three Premier League clean sheets in the nine games that have been played, the others came at home to a struggling Newcastle United and an Everton team without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.
West Ham United have been continuing their excellent form from last season, despite the challenges of the Europa League, and they will hope to mimic Wolverhampton Wanderers of the 2019-20 season: pushing far in Europe whilst challenging for the Champions League.
Fighting on two fronts has the capacity to kill teams but it can also spu them on to greater things. Before a game ball has been kicked in gameweek 9, the Hammers sit in 4th.
Their penalty shootout Carabao Cup victory over Manchester City on Wednesday night will push their confidence through the roof. It was City’s first loss in that competition since 2017.

Villa will be able to play Emiliano Martinez, despite fears he would be attending to a personal issue in Argentina. Morgan Sanson, Jaden Philogene-Bidace and Trezeguet are all out.
Leon Bailey should be available for contention, even though Dean Smith has acknowledged that he is managing the Jamaican’s minutes as he adjusts to life in England.
The visitors can welcome back Alex Kral and Vladimir Coufal from isolation and injury respectively. However, the form of Ben Johnson might keep the latter on the bench.
Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals should form a trio behind the in-form Michail Antonio.
Aston Villa v West Ham Match Odds
Aston Villa are 15/8 to win the game, West Ham are 11/8 to take maximum points while the draw is 5/2.
Newcastle are most familiar in a back-five setup and it’s unlikely that Jones will look to alter that ahead of the visit of Chelsea.
Getting men behind the ball gives them a chance of frustrating the opposition with blocks and limited space in the final-third.
However, the lack of defensive organisation and resolve means that they have struggled to keep clean sheets all season and such a setup seems to negate their attacking plans.
Aston Villa v West Ham Live Streaming Match Prediction
Smith struggled to create a system when Jack Grealish was unavailable, simply because Grealish was the system at Villa. His 3-5-2 has had its moments this season but, ultimately, his team are struggling to find the consistency you’d expect.
Danny Ings and Oli Watkins should be the strike partnership of dreams but it has yet to fully get off the floor.
David Moyes’ men are a highly functioning outfit. The double-pivot of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek make for a formidable midfield base. Rice, in particular, is able to control and dictate the flow of the game. His rise in recent years has been nothing short of phenomenal.
Antonio provides a perfect focal-point for Moyes in attack. He is like an old-fashioned striker: strong, nimble and difficult to handle.
He is in the form of his life and he will see this as a great opportunity to add to his goal tally against a Villa defence that is under the cosh.
Prediction: Aston Villa 1-2 West Ham United.
