Brentford and West Ham will clash in an all-Premier League and all-London affair this FA Cup weekend on Saturday evening with the two clubs separated by eight places in the league this season.
Brentford are heading into this one off the back of an unbeaten run since action resumed post-World Cup. In this time, they have even beaten West Ham United 2-0 in the Premier League.
Ivan Toney got another goal that day, although he is likely to miss this game with his knee injury. Josh Dasilva also got a goal, although the Hammers did have 20 shots in the game.
A 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur also came in this time, as the Bees hammered Liverpool 3-1 in a sensational performance that has now rocketed them into ninth in the table.
West Ham came from behind on two occasions at Elland Road, as Lucas Paqueta’s smart penalty and Gianluca Scamacca’s stunner earned a point against Leeds United.
Things could be very different than the game in the league between these two, as it is, after all, an FA Cup tie. Brentford are certainly the team in better form, however.
