West Ham lost their third league game on the run last weekend away at Nottingham Forest, while Brentford slipped to a narrow defeat at Champions-elect, Manchester City.

Pre-game odds and win probability: West Ham edge bookmaker's odds

  • HOME: 6/4 (2.50) – 40%
  • DRAW: 13/5 (3.60) – 27.8%
  • AWAY: 20/11 (2.82) – 35.5%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

That 2-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest was West Ham's eighth game without a win and third game on the run that they have lost and failed to score. Brentford have lost each of their last two league games but they were against title-chasers Liverpool and Manchester City so the Bees will fancy their chances of getting something out of Monday's match.

Player to watch – Ivan Toney

With Ivan Toney back for the rest of the season at least, Brentford should have more than enough firepower to pull themselves away from the ongoing relegation battle, starting with a positive result at West Ham.

Brentford's talisman

Toney banged in the goals last season and looks set to reach double figures this time around despite missing the first half of the season due to a suspension. A big-money move in the summer looks set to be on the cards so Toney will be hoping to impress potential suiters between now and then by scoring as many goals as possible.
