Brentford vs West Ham Prediction & Match Preview
Brentford vs West Ham
English FA Cup
Date: 7 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Gtech Community Stadium (Brentford).
Brentford dispatched West Ham 0-2 on the road in the Premier League affair last Friday. The two teams are set to lock horns once again eight days later.
This time, it is the fourth round of the FA Cup at stake as the Bees will be hoping to maintain their splendid spell of form.
Thomas Frank’s men backed up the mentioned victory at West Ham with another, even more impressive win. They stunned Liverpool 3-1 in front of the home crowd at Gtech Community Stadium on Monday evening in the first fixture of the Matchday No 19.
Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa produced fantastic efforts in the absence of the team’s top scorer Ivan Toney.
Toney missed the clash against Liverpool through a minor injury. He should be okay to start here but Frank may not risk him in the cup tie.
West Ham will go into this match in a completely different form. They have conceded five goals in the subsequent defeats at the hands of Arsenal and Brentford.
David Moyes’ men are now even lock on points with Nottingham Forest in the red zone of the Premier League standings.
The FA Cup success is not on Moyes’ list of priorities with such a horrendous Premier League form. The fact that the Hammers lost 11 of 17 league games this season speaks for itself.
Everything points towards another pleasant evening for the local fans at Gtech Community Stadium. Brentford have the form, the recent H2H games, and the schedule on their side going into this affair.
