West Ham Premier League safety up for grabs


West ham can secure Premier League safety at Brentford this afternoon.

A win for the Hammers would take David Moyes’ side up to 40 points and ensure that whatever happens elsewhere matter not.

The game will NOT be broadcast live in the UK, but it will be shown across the world by the Premier League’s international broadcast partners.

Brentford will be without defender Pontus Jansson (thigh), winger Keane Lewis-Potter (knee) and midfielder Christian Norgaard (heel) whilst we await David Moyes’ team selection.

Today’s  game will be just the fourth Premier League fixture between the two clubs, with Brentford having won home and away against the Hammers in their debut Premier League campaign last term.

Thomas Frank’s side also scored a 2-0 victory at London Stadium in this season’s reverse fixture on 30 December.

We then went to Gtech Community Stadium in the FA Cup third round in January and won 1-0 courtesy of a second-half goal from former Bee Saïd Benrahma.

    When the majority of fans wanted Moyes gone the owners said there was no one better available to step in. Now they have no excuse with top managers like Graham Potter available. We have 2 games left and we can still go down. Under any circumstances this is totally unacceptable after spending 150m in the summer. We have played a number of very average teams in Europe this season including the semi last thurs and again we have struggled. It will be sole destroying to see Potter going to another club because we have stuck with Moyes.
