West Ham United will lock horns with Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday as they focus on securing a good result on the road in the Premier League. The Hammers managed to earn an impressive 3-1 win over Arsenal in the EFL Cup recently which would give them a lot of confidence ahead of this game.
David Moyes will stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make some tweaks to his first XI for this clash. Kurt Zouma and Michail Antonio will both get a chance to play from the start of this game.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford
Alphonso Areola will play in goal for the East London club after getting a rest in midweek. Kurt Zouma is a slight concern ahead of this game but should be ready to play alongside Nayef Aguerd at the centre of the West Ham backline as they look to keep the opposition at bay throughout the game.
Emerson Palmieri will get a chance to shine as the left-back while Vladimir Coufal hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Moyes will give both of them the license to get forward and express themselves in the opponent’s half.
Thilo Kehrer will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Tomas Soucek and James Ward-Prowse will function as the holding midfielders as they try to get a stranglehold in the game at the centre of the park.
The gifted trio of Jarrod Bowen, Mohammed Kudus and Said Benrahma will play just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. All three of them need to combine with each other well if the Hammers want to create enough clear-cut chances to win this game.
Maxwel Cornet and Pablo Fornals will have to be content with a place on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.
Michail Antonio will spearhead West Ham’s attack on his own up top. He got a rest in midweek and should be fresh for this clash against the Bees.
Danny Ings will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final quarter of the game if West Ham are in need of a goal by then.
