Brentford are aiming for three consecutive league victories for the first time this season when they take on a West Ham team tired from the midweek exploits in the League Cup. Despite managing a big win over rivals Arsenal, West Ham’s overall form in recent weeks – as seen by the top predictions – has not been great.

Last time out…
The Brentford vs West Ham recent H2Hs reveal a game between the two teams back in May when Brentford managed a 2-0 win at home. Brentford were able to get a comfortable victory in this game with Bryan Mbeumo opening the scoring after just 20 minutes.
The lead was doubled for Brentford just before the breakthrough Yoane Wissa in the 43rd minute. West Ham never really threatened an equaliser in the second.
Brentford vs West Ham H2H: Potential MVP
Bryan Mbeumo was a big factor behind Brentford’s big win over Chelsea in the last match. The pace and quality possessed by the forward will be crucial for Brentford’s style of play even if they are likely to be a little more offensive when playing at home. The 24-year-old has been able six goals and two assists in his 10 league appearances. Thus, he has directly contributed 50% of the goals scored by the Bees so far this season.
Mbeumo has also been a thorn for West Ham on numerous occasions in recent years. He has come up against the Hammers on four occasions in his career and he has scored an impressive three goals. The recent momentum experienced by the player is likely to be crucial behind Brentford eyeing three consecutive victories in the league.
Brentford: Players in focus
Bryan Mbeumo on sparkling form
Bryan Mbeumo has been one of the standout performers for Brentford in the last two matches against Burnley and Chelsea. The 24-year-old has provided the offensive spark required to take advantage of half-chances.
Yoane Wissa being a great attacking foil
Yoane Wissa has been able to hit three goals so far in the league campaign. Even though he has scored only once in the last 10 matches in all competitions for Brentford, the attacking midfielder from Congo has produced a fine set of performances of late.
Ethan Pinnock leading by example
Ethan Pinnock has been rock-solid in the centre of the defence for Burnley. He has definitely been aided by his teammates also being in good form. Pinnock has come up with a below-average set of tackles and interceptions per match, but he has been impressive in terms of clearances and blocks.
West Ham: Players in focus
Jarrod Bowen still dominating the numbers for United
Jarrod Bowen remains the top performer for West Ham this season with six league goals. The 26-year-old has come up with two goals in four games since the last international break. Even though his overall record against Brentford stands at three goals in nine appearances, he has not scored in his last four games against the Bees.
James Ward-Prowse on course to capture his form
It has been a difficult few weeks for James Ward-Prowse, who has not been on the scoresheet in five consecutive matches. The winger will be in focus for a game that demands great set-piece situations. The 29-year-old has the potential to build on his three assists and two goals from the nine league matches.
Lucas Paqueta more than just numbers
Lucas Paquetá is likely to be a key player for West Ham in this game. Even though he has scored just once and assisted once in the 10 league matches, the Brazilian has been a cornerstone in the West Ham team this season. He has been in impressive form since October.
Brentford have enjoyed an excellent run against West Ham with four wins in the last five meetings. The Bees are likely to be a strong favourite for success with West Ham only managing two away wins this season. The Hammers are also likely to have tightness from the midweek cup exertions.
