West Ham’s disappointing defeat to Arsenal has increased pressure on manager David Moyes heading into the game against Brentford on Friday evening.
The Bees were unlucky to only draw against Tottenham last time out and they have already beaten Manchester City away from home this season so this will be a big test for the Hammers.
In terms of team news, Nayef Aguerd (illness) and Gianluca Scamacca (ankle) could be back in contention, but Maxwel Cornet (calf) and Kurt Zouma (knee) remain on the sidelines.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Brentford:
Fabianski, Kehrer, Dawson, Aguerd, Cresswell, Soucek, Paqueta, Rice, Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has five injuries with doubts over the fitness of Aaron Hickey (ankle), Kristoffer Ajer (knee) and Thomas Strakosha (ankle). Shandon Baptiste (thigh) and Frank Onyeka (hamstring) are both ruled out.
Brentford’s Predicted XI:
Raya, Roerslev, Jorgensen, Pinnock, Mee, Henry, Jensen, Norgaard, Janelt, Mbeumo, Toney
The bookies have made West Ham the slight favourites with Betfair pricing them at 21/20 for the win. A draw is 13/5 with Betway while a victory for Brentford is 11/4 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 1-1
