Mings vs Haller will have huge bearing on Villa-West Ham result

Aston Villa and West Ham United face off on Monday as the Premier League returns following the international break.

The Midlands club will be looking to break out of the relegation zone having picked up three points from their first four games.

West Ham are full of confidence at the moment having taken seven points from their first handful of matches. Manuel Pellegrini’s team have won two games, drawn one and lost one, and fans are encouraged by what they have seen so far.

It is the first meeting between the two sides since 2016, with the Hammers running out 2-0 winners last time in the Premier League.

With both managers having instilled an attacking brand of football in their respective teams, Monday’s game promises to be an entertaining one.


One battle to look out for that could well decide the outcome of the match, is Tyrone Mings versus Sebastien Haller.

TBR’s view

Fresh from being called up to the England squad, Mings will be hoping to do at Villa Park what defenders have struggled to so far: keep the French striker quiet.

Having already notched three goals, Haller is proving to be a big threat for the Hammers.

The pair will likely see a lot of each other during the contest, and £20 million defender Mings (BBC Sport) has to ensure he doesn’t lose the crafty forward, who has brilliant movement to complement his impressive physical game.

Certainly it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in the aerial battle as well, with Mings 6ft 5in and Haller 6ft 4in. Whoever comes out on top could well help their team to the three points.
