Prediction: Brentford vs West Ham United

Prediction: Brentford to win 2-1

Best Odds: 15/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Brentford and West Ham United will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between Thomas Frank’s side and David Moyes’s team will be held at the Gtech Community Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 2pm UK time on Sunday.


Brentford are having a wonderful season and look set to finish in the top half of the Premier League table. Thomas Frank’s side were expected by many to fight for survival in the English top flight this season, but now they are very likely to finish above the likes of Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United in the standings.

The London club are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 50 points from 35 matches. Brentford are four points behind eighth-placed Aston Villa and as many as eight points above former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners. It shows just good a season Frank’s side are having now.

Brentford will head into the London derby against West Ham United this coming weekend on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League. It came after a 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest at home in the league and followed a 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

Team News:

Brentford manager Thomas Frank is likely to line in a 3-5-2 formation against West Ham United. Toney and Mbeumo will be the two centre-forwards. Raya will start in goal for the Bees. Jensen will be in midfield.

West Ham United

West Ham United are not completely out of the woods yet, but it does not look very likely that David Moyes’s side will end up in the bottom three of the Premier League table this season. It has been a really poor domestic campaign for the Hammers, but the London club could end the season on a positive note.

The Hammers are 15th in the Premier League table at the moment with 37 points from 35 matches. West Ham are as many as seven points above the relegation zone now. With the likes of Leeds United, Leicester City and Southampton all struggling at the momenta and below them in the standings, it will take a lot of factors for West Ham to get dragged back into the bottom three now.

West Ham could also end up with a European trophy this season. The Premier League club will take on AZ Alkmaar at London Stadium in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League semi-final tie on Thursday evening before facing Brentford in the London derby next Sunday. Moyes’s team registered a 1-0 win against Manchester United at home in the Premier League this past weekend.

Team News:

West Ham United manager David Moyes is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that beat Manchester United at London Stadium in the Premier League this past weekend. Fabianski will start in goal for the Hammers. Antonio will lead the line. Bowen, Lucas Paqueta and Benrahma will be the three attacking midfielders behind him.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Brentford have lost 3 of their last 6 Premier League matches.
  • Brentford have scored 52 goals in 35 Premier League matches.
  • West Ham United have lost 3 of their last 6 Premier League games.
  • West Ham United have conceded 50 goals in 35 Premier League games.
  • Ivan Toney has scored 20 goals and given 4 assists in 33 Premier League matches.


Brentford have been the better team than West Ham United, who are still in a dire situation and could get relegated to the Championship at the end of the season. The Bees are at home for the London derby, and given that they are in better form right now, they should get the job done and pick up all three points from the Premier League game at the Gtech Community Stadium this coming weekend.
