thumbnail Hello,

There's a local derby on Monday night with Paul Lambert's side traveling the short distance to the Hawthorns where our is tipster backing a low scoring affair

West Bromwich Albion host Aston Villa this evening with both sides locked on 14 points in the Premier League after the first 11 games of the season. With only one goal separating the two sides, they sit firmly in mid-table in 11th and 12th.

Aston Villa have really struggled at home this season, but have only been beaten only once away from home in the league, with Chelsea coming out on top in August 2-1.

Villa have beaten Arsenal and Norwich, drawing their last two away games 0-0 with Hull City and West Ham United. Paul Lambert's side haven't won at the Hawthorns since 2008, and Paddy Power price them at 12/5 (3.40) to take all three points.

West Brom have won only once in their last five matches, beating Crystal Palace at home last time out 2-0.

The Baggies were denied three points in controversial circumstances at Stamford Bridge before the international weekend, with a late Chelsea penalty meaning the game ended 2-2. Paddy Power price the home side at 6/5 (2.20) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

Paddy Power also have a special running for this game. New customers can back Aston Villa at 9/1 (10.0) to win. That price is only available to new customers signing up through the link above.

Despite last seasons fixture ending 2-2, it's worth backing both teams not to score at even money (2.00) with Paddy Power.

This would have paid out in four of the hosts five home matches this season, as well Aston Villa's last five matches. It's always tough to call who will come out on top in a derby match, so backing few goals is certainly worth investing in.
