El Ghazi with a chance ... but Fabianski is equal to his effort on goal.

It says a lot that this is the major talking point so far!
This game continues to need a goal rather badly.
Villa respond. This time Grealish threatens at the opposite end but sees his fizzingcross beaten away by Fabianski. McGinn picks up the loose ball but arrows a shot just wide.
Lanzini wriggles in to the Villa box. Grealish almost runs into trouble trying to deal with it, but Neil Taylor shows great composure to cushion a header back for Heaton to collect.

Villa huff and puff to try to get the second period off to a strong start, but again they lack quality in the final third.

HT: Villa 0-0 West Ham.
Two minutes added.
FINE STOP! McGinn meets a left-wing cutback with a low, first-time shot but sees his effort brilliantly pushed to safety by Fabianski.
Everything but a goal. The game badly needs one too.
A bizarre incident from a few moments ago.
El Ghazi gets a thump in the face for his troubles as Fabianski cleans him out punching away a dangerous ball in from the right. He needs some treatment, but the Villa man should be good to continue.
A towering defensive header from Engel denies Haller a chance at goal after Anderson had curved a cross in from the right.
Good omen? Birthday boy Pellegrini (66 today) has won five of his past six games against Villa, drawing the other.
McGinn sees a 30-yard piledriver fizz straight at Fabianski. Decent effort but too close to the keeper in the end.
STAT: West Ham have won five of their last seven league encounters, losing just once. The Hammers are also unbeaten in four away matches (W3, D1), having previously taken one point from eight fixtures on the road.
- Yellow cardMark NobleWest Ham United
And the flurry of cautions continues with Noble the next to have his name taken by the referee.
- Yellow cardJack GrealishAston Villa
Grealish picks up an avoidable booking.
Attempts: Villa 1-6 West Ham. Just one on target so far and that was from the Hammers.
Rice takes aim after a lengthy spell of Hammers possession, but he is well closed down and sees his 25-yarder deflected behind. The Hammers try to keep the pressure on, but Arthur Masuaku lets the hosts off the hook when he blazes well over from distance.
Guilbert is back in action and the games continues.
- Yellow cardArthur MasuakuWest Ham United
Guilbert is down receiving treatment for Villa. Play has been briefly halted. Meanwhile, Masuaku goes in the book.
A super counter at pace almost sees the Hammers unlock the Villa defence. Anderson charges down the left and curves a lovely ball into the box that Haller heads just wide.
DID YOU KNOW? West Ham have made their best league start since 2012-13. They also had seven points from four games back then.
Lanzini is tumbled 40 yards from goal. Yarmolenko floats it towards the far post, but the visitors can't make anything of it and Mings easily clears his lines.
VIDEO: Wesley goes close.
Yarmolenko has a pop from distance - but it's way off target.
CLOSE! Grealish plays a lovely one-two to sprint to the right by line. He fizzes in a wonderful cross to the near post for Wesley, who somehow fails to find the target.
El Ghazi is a whisker away from getting his head on the end of Grealish's devilish free kick from the left. The Villa forward can't quite make any contact and Fabianski is happy to smother on his line.
Villa's success over Everton on August 23 was their only win in their last 17 PL matches. The Villans lost 15 of those outings.
John McGinn appears to trip Ogbonna as he looks to surge on to a ball down the right. He continues his run and lashes into the corner - but the goal is rightly ruled out for the foul.
DID YOU KNOW? The Hammers are targeting consecutive victories over Villa for the first time since January 2006.
Guilbert speeds to the right byline and fires it in low for Haller. The big front man lays it back for Yarmolenko who sees a drive from just inside the box deflected behind.
Cheers from the home support as Noble turns and rakes a 40-yard ball to the flank - and out of play. Neither side finding much rhythm in the early proceedings.
Head-to-head: Villa have won eight and lost just two of their last 18 home league matches v West Ham.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! West Ham get things underway.
STAT: Villa have won seven of their last nine home matches in all competitions.
STAT: Villa have managed just one victory in their last 16 Monday Premier League matches, losing on 10 occasions. Indeed, opposition sides have enjoyed top-flight trips to the Midlands in recent years having netted 23 goals in the last nine PL games at Villa Park.
HOT-SHOT HALLER: Sebastien Haller has scored three goals in three Premier League games. In fact, the French forward has been directly involved in 21 goals in his previous 25 outings in club football.
Manuel Pellegrini: "Last season we lost against the teams around us. Now we will see as Aston Villa has a good team and a difficult stadium but we will go there and try to win."
Dean Smith: "They're (his players) itching for that next game. There's a burning desire from them to right the wrongs. I can sense that."
Two changes for Villa from their 1-0 reversal v Palace. Marvelous Nakamba makes his league bow for the Villans with Anwar El Ghazi also coming in. West Ham are unchanged from their win over Norwich, with Jack Wilshere deemed fit enough for the bench.
