West Ham will be happy to the way they have begun the campaign with three victories, two draws and just one defeat from their opening six. They defeated Leeds last weekend 2-1 while were in Europa League action on Thursday night. At the Olympic Stadium, the Hammers have lost just one of their last four domestic games which came against Man United.
Brentford have taken an excellent nine points from their first six games in the Premier League winning two, drawing three and losing just once. Last time out they impressed in the way they took on Liverpool and drew 3-3 twice coming from behind to claim a share of the points. Away from Griffin Park, the Bees are unbeaten in three this season drawing with Crystal Palace and Aston Villa and beating Wolves.
West Ham vs Brentford: Match Stats
Both teams to score looks the best bet here as it has happened in four of the six matches West Ham have played this season while Brentford are in good goalscoring form having grabbed five from their last two fixtures.
While West Ham have not had to travel as they played at home in Europe on Thursday night it is not the deepest squad and some of the players will have to play twice. Thomas Frank has shown excellent in-game management so far and with the fresher players at his disposal backing the Bees to win the second-half appeals.
