Aston Villa vs West Ham United. Matchday blog (RAW EPL e5)

The mad RAW EPL tour across England continues at Villa Park in Birmingham – where the freshly-promoted Aston Villa hosted West Ham United.

Villa - a great club with an illustrious history and which has only just returned to the top flight – had already lost three games in their first EPL campaign since 2016 and have been looking to get back on track.

West Ham United, on the other hand, wanted to reinforce their solid 7-point start to the season with an away win.

Neither of the sides got the desired win, but the 0-0 game was indeed entertaining – and so were the fans of the two teams, who spoke to Raw Take about their respective clubs!
