Dean Smith’s side beat Arsenal last time out to drag themselves out of the relegation zone, on goal difference, with one game to go but they know they have to better the result achieved by Watford and Bournemouth to stay up. Jack Grealish will have to inspire Villa to record a third win in their last four games of the season to secure their Premier League status.

If Villa win and Watford win at Arsenal on the final day, it will go down to goal difference and Villa have the edge. By one goal. This will be tense.

Team news

West Ham will look to get promising young right back Ben Johnson more minutes, while Moyes will likely go with his strongest possible lineup to finish the season with a win.

Aston Villa lost Ahmed Elmohamady early on against Arsenal to a hamstring injury but Frederic Guilbert came on and did really well to replace him at right back. Wesley and Tom Heaton remain Villa’s long-term absentees.

1. What are your thoughts on Aston Villa this season?

It’s certainly been an interesting season at Villa Park.

Having secured promotion with a historic winning run vaulting Dean Smith’s side into the play-offs and then enjoying the occasion of a winning Wembley trip – spirits were incredibly high heading into the top flight for fans.

Those spirits were boosted further by the money spent, although the season has definitely been a tricky one to negotiate.

Villa has survival in their hands though, and whilst the season has certainly been stressful, it’s also been very entertaining for the neutral. Fans and staff alike will hope that should they stay up, that it won’t be quite as worrying next season.
