West Ham United vs Brentford Preview

West Ham United vs Brentford

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium: London Stadium

Date: 26th Febuary 2024

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

West Ham will welcome Brentford to the London Stadium this Monday with both sides desperate to return to winning ways.

West Ham are currently amidst one of their worst runs of form in recent years as they’re currently without a win in their six Premier League fixtures so far in 2024 (D3, L3). It is their worst start to a calendar year since 2007 where they suffered through eight top-flight games without a win.

Those three defeats this year all came in their last three matches and the pain of defeat is compounded by the fact they failed to score in each. The last time they failed to score in four consecutive league games was in October 2006. They could repeat that feat here, given they have lost all five of their previous Premier League encounters with Brentford.

But Brentford are not a team in form, with the Bees losing four of their last five games (W1). However, they can take solace in the fact those defeats were against top-four hopefuls Tottenham, league leaders Liverpool, and twice against title contenders Manchester City.

Regardless, their poor run has caused them to slide down the table, with the gap between them and the relegation zone shrinking to just five points. Alarm bells are not sounding yet, but Thomas Frank’s side cannot afford to drop further points as that could lead them fully into a scrappy relegation fight.
