West Ham holds on with 10 men for 0-0 draw at Aston Villa

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) Ten-man West Ham held on for a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Monday after Arthur Masuaku was sent off midway through the second half.

Masuaku was given a second booking for tripping Villa substitute Ahmed Elmohamady in the 67th minute but the hosts couldn't take advantage, with Jack Grealish missing their best chance for a late winner when he failed to connect cleanly with a cross, sending his volley wide from seven yards out.

The game ebbed back and forth in the final minutes as West Ham threatened on a couple of quick counter-attacks but failed to create a clear-cut scoring chance.
