The Premier League New Year slate starts with an encounter at the London Stadium, when West Ham United and Brentford lock horns. This thrilling encounter promises to be one that can have a huge impact on the standings, with the hosts barely managing to stay out of the relegation zone.
Four straight Premier League defeats have placed West Ham barely above the dotted line, holding the exact same points as David Moyes’ former club Everton. A 3-1 to Arsenal during Boxing Day was definitely a very disappointing result considering that they actually looked great earlier on during the match, which saw them have a lead by half-time thanks to Said Benrahma’s penalty.
But we have to take a look at what happened before, as the damage was done way before the World Cup break came through, as losing to Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Manchester United left the Hammers in a very difficult position. A 10-9 loss on penalties against Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup back in November also means that their most recent two victories happened in Europe and that might be the only saving grace for Moyes’s side
Meanwhile, Brentford is looking to pick up another Premier League win on the road, following their amazing performance at the Etihad before the break. They are currently on a four-game lossless streak in the league after scoring a draw Monday against Tottenham Hotspur. All of this means that they are sitting in the top half with the halfway point of the season approaching.
Thomas Frank also signed a new contract with the Bees that will last until 2027. It’s safe to say that the Dane really believes he can still take this team much further. That said, we can’t deny that the Bees’ disappointing collapse against the Spurs might take a hit in the team’s confidence heading into this game. Brentford ended up squandering a two-goal lead, that said, Frank said he was impressed with the result after the match.
