Sunday Premier League action from London Stadium, as The Hammers take on Brentford.

As it stands, Brentford will go to London Stadium in ninth place, The Hammers are currently in seventh.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, West Ham United have managed to gain 11 points

The Hammers will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 1-2 victory over Leeds United in their last fixture.

The Hammers keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last six games is astonishing this season. With 11 points, they currently sit seventh in the League having won three meetings, drawn two matches, and lost one game.

Playing at home, The Hammers have won one game, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Victory for West Ham United would take their points tally to 14 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

The Hammers have a good scoring record this season, with 13 netted so far. Their stand out attacking players have been Michail Antonio (5), Said Benrahma (3), and Pablo Fornals (2). The Hammers have conceded eight goals.

The Hammers’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for David Moyes, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.

Brentford have nine points to their name, going into this tie

With Thomas Frank’s men stubbornly held to a 3-3 draw in their last match, he will hope to find the key to unlock the defence in this fixture.

Brentford are quickly becoming the Premier League’s draw specialists, having recorded three in their last five games. With ninth, they currently sit nine points in the League having won two fixtures, drawn three games, and lost one game.

Brentford will travel to The Hammers with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory and two draws.

Winning this fixture will see Brentford on 12 points.

A solid defensive team

Brentford’s defence has been rock solid so far, only conceding five goals in their previous fixtures. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Brentford have found the net eight times (7 from open play and one penalty), but their performance at times this season has been average. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Ivan Toney (2), Ethan Pinnock (1), and Christian Norgaard (1).

Brentford’s squad has depth, but even so, Thomas Frank is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.

The Hammers have a favourable 54.05 percent probability of winning.
