West Ham vs Brentford 2022 to be played at London's Olympic Stadium
West Ham look to revive their situation from the 2019 – 2020 season.
The last two seasons West Ham had managed to do well which left them in a comfortable position at the close of each season, in 2020 – 21 they finished 6th and in 2021 – 22 they would finish 7th. However, this season seems to be more a reflection of what happened to them in the 2019 – 20 competition where they finished in 16th place, nowhere near relegation. Fortunately every point counts, as well as wins and goals. In this West Ham vs Brentford they should be looking for a win to move away from the relegation places from which they are in danger if they fail to make distance.
Brentford will be looking to improve on last season’s record.
After being absent in past seasons, in the 2021 – 22 season Brentford achieved #13, a great achievement for a newly promoted club. During this period they are also doing an exceptional job to even manage to improve on that which they achieved previously. The West Ham vs Brentford away game is challenging but not impossible for the Bees.
