West Ham vs Brentford: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today

West Ham welcome London rivals Brentford in the Premier League tonight.

David Moyes is fighting for not only his future but to keep his team’s domestic season alive, amid a run of eight games without a win.


The top six is rapidly escaping the Hammers, leaving them to scrap it out with Brighton, Newcastle, Chelsea and Wolves for a possible single spot in the Europa Conference League - unless they can produce their own Europa League heroics later in the season.

Perhaps it is both a blessing and a curse for West Ham that they now face Brentford.

The Bees are also struggling, dangling above the dropzone and beaten in four of their last five - albeit on a run of games that included Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City twice.

A defeat at home to Thomas Frank’s side would leave Moyes in even bigger trouble and make for a furious atmosphere in east London. But this is a fixture Brentford have done exceedingly well in since their return to the top flight.

Date, kick-off time and venue

West Ham vs Brentford is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Monday, February 26, 2024.

The match will take place at London Stadium.

West Ham vs Brentford prediction

This feels like a make-or-break game for the Hammers and Moyes, who risk being cut adrift from the race for Europe if they fail to win.

Frank has had their number for some time though and Brentford are ready to back up some promising recent performances with a big result.

Brentford to win, 2-1.
