West Ham United and Nottingham Forest will face each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match between the Hammers and the Reds will be held at London Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 3pm UK time on Saturday.

West Ham United

West Ham United are one of the biggest and most established clubs in the Premier League, but the London outfit are in real danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season. David Moyes’s side have struggled all campaign, and things are looking to look very dangerous for the Hammers, who need to come up with a fix for their problems soon.

The Hammers are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 20 points from 23 matches. David Moyes’s side are a point behind 17th-placed Bournemouth and are two points above second-from-bottom Leeds United. West Ham are only two points better off bottom side Southampton.

West Ham United will head into the Premier League match against Nottingham Forest at London Stadium on Saturday afternoon on the back of a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur away from home at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the league. The loss in the London derby against Spurs came after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in another London derby in the Premier League and followed a 1-1 draw with high-flying Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park in the league.

Team News:

West Ham United manager David Moyes could deploy a 3-4-2-1 formation. Michail Antonio has not been playing well for a while, and Danny Ings could replace him in the team. Declan Rice will keep his place in central midfield, while Jarrod Bowen will be in attacking midfield.

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League at the end of last season. The Reds signed essentially an entire squad last summer, and it took a while for manager Steve Cooper to get things right. The former European champions have steadily risen up the Premier League table, and now it looks very likely that they will retain their English top-flight status for next season.

Forest are as high as 13th in the Premier League table at the moment with 25 points from 23 matches. Steve Cooper’s side are as many as five points above the relegation zone and 10 points behind eighth-placed Liverpool.

The Reds will head into the Premier League match against West Ham United at London Stadium on Saturday afternoon on the back of a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the City Ground in the league. It came after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Fulham away from home at Craven Cottage in London and followed a 1-0 victory over Leeds United in front of their own fans in the league.

Team News:

Nottingham Forest manager Steven Cooper is unlikely to make too changes to the team that started against Manchester City last weekend. The former European champions will play in a 4-3-2-1 formation. Brennan Johnson will lead the line for the Reds, while Morgan Gibbs-White will be in attacking midfield.

Key Factors to Consider

  • West Ham United have won 5 Premier League matches all season.
  • West Ham United have conceded 29 goals in 23 Premier League games so far this season.
  • Nottingham Forest have won 3 of their last 6 Premier League matches.
  • Nottingham Forest have scored 18 goals in 23 Premier League matches so far this season.
  • West Ham United have scored 19 goals in 23 Premier League games so far this season.

Conclusion

Nottingham Forest have been doing well in recent weeks, and Steve Cooper’s side will fancy their chances of getting something from the Premier League game against West Ham United at London Stadium this weekend. However, the Hammers do have better players. Yes, the London club are in dire form at the moment, but playing at home is an advantage, and the players could rise to the challenge.

Prediction: West Ham United to win 2-0

Best Odds: 13/2
