West Ham United vs Brentford

, KO: 20:00 Feb 26, 2024, London Stadium

WEST HAM UNITED will be bidding to land a much-needed Premier League victory when they welcome Brentford to the London Stadium on Monday night.

Pressure is mounting on West Ham manager David Moyes following a wretched run of eight matches without a win across all competitions.

In fact, the Hammers' 2-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest last Saturday was their third top-flight defeat on the trot, a setback that saw them tumble towards the bottom half of the table in the process.

As such, the East Londoners will be eager to arrest their alarming slump when capital neighbours Brentford come calling.

The Bees are going through a sticky patch of their own at present, having fallen to defeat in nine of their last 11 Premier League assignments.

That being said, Thomas Frank’s team will have taken plenty of positives from their spirited showing in their narrow 1-0 defeat at Man City on Tuesday night.

Outright Betting

Despite failing to win any of their last three Premier League home games, West Ham are 6/4 favourites on Betfred.

Brentford have won all five of their Premier League meetings with West Ham but they are 9/5 (UniBet) outsiders to repeat the trick on Monday night while a share of the London Stadium spoils pays out at 13/5 (Bet 365).

Betting Angles

Neither team makes great appeal in the 1X2 here market so I'll instead opt for player-based Bet Builder and couple up both Christian Nørgaard and Edson Álvarez to each commit a foul at 4/5 on Bet 365.

Brentford midfielder Nørgaard has been the Bees’ most prolific hatchet-man in the Premier League this season, having racked up eight cards across his 23 appearances so far.

What’s more, the Danish destroyer has averaged 1.4 fouls per-game in the top-flight this term, committing a minimum of one foul in 17 of his 23 outings to date.

Moving into West Ham’s midfield, I’ll also go with Edson Álvarez to get on the wrong side of referee Simon Hooper at least once during this all-London affair.

The combative Mexican international has also clocked up eight cards in the Premier League season, a return that coincides with his 1.2 fouls per-game average.

With all things considered, and team news permitting, the aforementioned combination should give us a good run for our money at 4/5 with Bet 365.

Given West Ham’s defensive woes in recent weeks, I’m also going to take Brentford’s Ivan Toney To Score or Assist at even-money (1/1) on PaddyPower.

Thomas Frank’s talisman has scored in four of his six league starts since returning to action last month and he looks worth backing to get in on the act on Monday night.
