Why you should back West Ham 

The Hammers are looking to regain their offensive touch as they’ve recorded only three goals during their EPL winless streak, which has followed a run of three consecutive victories during which the club outscored its opponents 7-0. West Ham are led offensively by Jarrod Bowen, who is seventh in the Premier League with 11 goals. The 27-year-old winger is mired in a seven-game drought after converting in 11 of his first 17 outings this season, including the loss to the Bees.

Mohammed Kudus also scored in the first meeting with Brentford and is second on the Hammers with six goals. Fellow midfielders James Ward-Prowse and Tomas Soucek have netted five goals apiece, with the former converting in back-to-back matches prior to West Ham’s current drought. The 29-year-old Ward-Prowse also is among the top set-up men in the EPL with six assists, while defender Vladimir Coufal and midfielder Lucas Paqueta both have notched five. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Brentford

The Bees will be without injured winger Bryan Mbeumo, who leads the team with seven goals, but will still have several offensive threats on the pitch. French striker Neal Maupay has netted five goals while forwards Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa both have converted four times. The 27-year-old Toney has recorded his goals in just six games after missing Brentford’s first 19 of the EPL season due to suspension.

Prior to his current three-game drought, Maupay converted in five consecutive matches across all competitions, including three in the Premier League. The 27-year-old’s first goal of the campaign opened the scoring in Brentford’s triumph over West Ham in November. Danish midfielder Mathias Jensen has netted three goals and assisted on three others to tie Maupay and Mbeumo for the team lead. See which team to pick here.
