West Ham come into the game having defeated Rapid Vienna 2-0 at home in the Europa League on Thursday night. The Hammers took the lead after 29 minutes and sealed the points with a second goal in the 90th minute.
That result means West Ham have won each of their last 3 matches in all competitions, including a 1-0 win at Manchester United in the League Cup and a 2-1 win at Leeds United in the Premier League last weekend.
West Ham are unbeaten in 11 of their 12 most recent matches. However, they have failed to win their last 2 home Premier League fixtures.
West Ham were defeated 2-1 at the London Stadium by Manchester United and were held to a 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace.
Trends show both teams have scored in each of their last 3 home Premier League games and West Ham have kept just a single clean sheet in their 8 most recent home league matches.
Brentford make the trip to the London Stadium having picked up a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw at home with Liverpool last weekend.
The Bees took the lead in the game only to find themselves 2-1 down after 54 minutes. Brentford scored an equaliser in the 63rd minute but again found themselves behind just 6 minutes later.
However, they did not give up and scored a third goal 8 minutes from time to claim a deserved draw.
That result means Brentford are undefeated in their last 3 matches in all competitions. They defeated Oldham Athletic 7-0 at home in the League Cup and beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 away from home in the Premier League.
Trends show Brentford are unbeaten in 18 of their 20 most recent matches in all competitions. They have seen under 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 4 away games, including all 3 in the Premier League this season.
Team news and West Ham are without Ryan Fredericks due to a groin strain. The Hammers will hope Vladimir Coufal returns from a knock to take his place at right-back.
Brentford are expected to be without the injured duo of Mads Bech Sörensen and Joshua Dasilva, who are not expected back in action until after the international break.
This should be a closely fought game and Brentford have proven good opposition since their promotion last season. We expect to see this one end level, with under 2.5 goal scored.
