est Ham are back in domestic action today with a trip to Aston Villa, in search of their first league win of the campaign.
The club’s start to the Premier League season has been a major concern, with David Moyes’ side rooted to the bottom of the embryonic table as things stand. Three games, three losses and no goals do not make for pleasant reading.
Still, a trip to Aston Villa could offer some welcome respite.
Steven Gerrard is under pressure himself and Villa have hardly convinced despite big money spent.
