West Ham United are certainly doing everything to demonstrate that they are a Premier League top six team, with the Hammers having racked up eleven points from six games played. They have demonstrated plenty of character to come back from losing positions and the latest example of this was when they overcame the challenge of Leeds last weekend.

Michail Antonio is back at the head of the attack and the centre forward was back on the goal trail with the winner at Elland Road, although they might find this match tough going against a Brentford side who have performed excellently since landing promotion from the Championship last season.

Thomas Frank’s side secured a 2-0 win away to Wolves a fortnight ago and then performed very well when drawing 3-3 with Liverpool which involved the Bees twice coming from behind to secure a point. Ivan Toney will be looking forward to causing more havoc along with strike partner Bryan Mbuemo.

Our best bet is going to be the visitors enjoying half a goal start on the Asian Handicap market. There might not actually be much between these sides come the end of the campaign, with Brentford’s brave style of play having already seen them avoid defeat in all but one of their games.
