West Ham United vs Brentford
West Ham United won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 3-1 Premier League defeat in their last game at the hands of Arsenal.
In that match, West Ham United had 33% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The only player to score for West Ham United was Saïd Benrahma (27'). On the other side, Arsenal had 16 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. Bukayo Saka (53'), Gabriel Martinelli (58') and Eddie Nketiah (69') scored for Arsenal.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games that West Ham United have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that West Ham United have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 10 goals on the way. Let’s see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.
In their last game, Brentford drew 2-2 in the Premier League match with Tottenham Hotspur.
In that game, Brentford managed 39% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 5 on target. For Brentford, the scorers were Vitaly Janelt (15') and Ivan Toney (54'). For their opponents, Tottenham Hotspur had 16 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. Harry Kane (65') and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (71') scored for Tottenham Hotspur.
Brentford have been dangerous up front of late, having scored 8 times in their last 6 matches. Having said that, Brentford have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same clashes.
My thinking is that Brentford are capable enough to score against this West Ham United team, but that is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
I am predicting a very close game with a 2-1 winning score for West Ham United when all is said and done.
