West Ham draws 0-0 with Aston Villa in EPL
LONDON (AP) — West Ham picked up a rare home point by battling out a 0-0 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday in the Premier League.
The game was short on entertainment value but ended a run of three straight home league losses for Sam Allardyce’s team.
Villa striker Christian Benteke came closest to breaking the deadlock when his second-half header struck a post.
West Ham has now gone 375 minutes without a goal at Upton Park and has scored just eight goals in 10 league games.
Benteke also had a left-foot shot go just wide after being deflected by a defender, and West Ham midfielder Joe Cole could have snatched a late winner if his shot had not been smothered by Brad Guzan.
