West Ham v Brentford: Both teams failed to win their first game back after the World Cup, and will be looking to end the year on a high

West Ham are set to welcome Brentford in the latest gameweek of the Premier League. It will be the final game of the year for both teams, who have endured a poor season by all accounts.

The last game would have also been disappointing for both teams. West Ham went into halftime against table toppers Arsenal leading, but lost the game 3-1 due to goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah.

Meanwhile, the Hammers’ upcoming opponents Brentford, who are set to play their second Londonderby in a row were leading 2-0 against Tottenham before goals from Harry Kane and Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg salvaged a draw for Spurs.

It will be a game that both sides will view as winnable after a fairly poor run of form for both sides. It was a season that promised a lot for West Ham after they secured European Football, but the side currently sit 16th.

Brentford were also aiming for a similar feat despite this season being just their second in the Premier League. They demolished Manchester United 4-0 back in August, but are now sitting in 10th.
