West Ham United will clash heads with Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they focus on securing a positive result on the road. The Hammers managed to earn a 2-1 win over Everton in their last Premier League game, so they will be eager to maintain their good form in the league this weekend.
David Moyes will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could name a strong team for this game. Michail Antonio will once again lead the charge for the Hammers down the middle.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford
Łukasz Fabiański will function in between the sticks for the Hammers after shipping in one goal in his last league appearance. Kurt Zouma will play along with Craig Dawson in central defence as they try to keep the Bees at bay throughout the 90 minutes.
Ryan Fredericks could get the nod to operate at right-back while Aaron Cresswell hopes to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.
Vladimír Coufal is a major doubt for this clash and will have to pass a late fitness test if he wants to be involved this weekend.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will once again anchor the West Ham midfield as they look to dominate the game at the centre of the park and feed some decent through balls to the front players.
The talented trio of Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen will play just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. Bowen managed to get his name on the scoresheet last weekend which will keep him in high spirits going into this league game on the road.
Mark Noble and Andriy Yarmolenko will have to settle for a place on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to shine in the second 45 minutes if required.
Barring any late injuries, Michail Antonio will probably be given the responsibility to lead the line for the East London giants up top.
