Predicted West Ham XI vs Brentford: latest team and injury news, predicted lineup

West Ham United return to Premier League action this afternoon as they welcome newly-promoted Brentford to the London Stadium.

David Moyes and his side will be looking to build on their fine form this season but standing in their way are a fearless Bees side who have already caused a shock against Arsenal and drawn to Liverpool only last weekend.

What is your prediction for West Ham vs Brentford?

Irons win!

Irons win!

Draw...

Bees win!

Bees win!

The Irons head into the clash on the back of another Europa League victory, having defeated Austrian outfit Rapid Wien here just a few days ago.

And ahead of the international break, the Scotsman has plenty to consider in terms of his team selection. He is expected to make several changes after resting many of his key stars.

Here’s the lineup we’re predicting today…

There could be as many as seven changes from Thursday’s 2-0 win.

Moyes is expected to go back to his first-choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski after handing Paris Saint Germain loanee Alphonse Areola an opportunity, whilst only Aaron Cresswell is likely to remain in defence.

Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma have struck up a decent partnership, so they could replace Issa Diop and Craig Dawson in the middle.

At right-back, Moyes has a bit of a headache as both Vladimir Coufal and Ryan Fredericks are facing late fitness tests. Ben Johnson impressed in their absence against Wien but according to the Hammers boss, there’s “a chance” he is involved so if he’s fit, he should start.

Can you name all 10 ex-Hammers? First up... He assisted the first goal at the London Stadium but made only 8 appearances for the Irons, who is he?

Tomas Soucek will surely come back into the starting XI, playing alongside Declan Rice, though Nikola Vlasic is axed for Pablo Fornals in the no.10 role.

Thursday’s match-winner Said Benrahma may have played the full 90 minutes but he should remain in the lineup, with Jarrod Bowen returning over Andriy Yarmolenko.

Whilst in attack, the Premier League’s leading talisman Michail Antonio will be looking to continue his impressive goalscoring form.

AND in other news, Moyes could find West Ham’s perfect Cresswell heir in “very promising” £8.1m-rated gem
