West Ham’s Woes Continue? Brentford Favored in Crucial Clash

West Ham are in dire straits, shipping 11 unanswered goals in their last 3 Premier League defeats and failing to win in 8 consecutive matches across all competitions.

Their leaky defense and toothless attack raise serious concerns ahead of their Monday night clash against Brentford, who boast a dominant head-to-head record, winning 5 of the last 6 encounters.

Brentford’s recent form isn’t stellar either, but their spirited 0-1 defeat to Manchester City shows promise. With key players returning like Yoanne Wissa, the Bees are favored at 2.75 odds to win.

West Ham’s defensive woes are alarming, conceding 2+ goals in 4 of their last 5 league games. This bodes well for Ivan Toney, who has netted 4 goals in 6 appearances since his ban. Back him to score anytime at 2.50 odds.

Prediction: While West Ham desperately need a win, their current form makes it hard to believe.

Brentford are the safer bet, with their attacking prowess and recent performance against top opposition showcasing their potential.
