West Ham United 0-2 Brentford: Match report, player ratings, fan reaction & more


Match report

The mounting pressure on the shoulders of West Ham United boss David Moyes reached a new high on Friday night.

This came as his Hammers side were put to the sword by capital rivals Brentford, to slip ever closer to the Premier League’s relegation zone.

Ivan Toney was first on target for the evening’s visitors to the London Stadium, slotting home from close range after Lukasz Fabianski kept out Christian Norgaard’s initial effort.

And Toney went on to turn provider a short time later, releasing Josh Dasilva to surge in behind West Ham’s backline before picking out the far corner with aplomb:

West Ham, from here, pushed hard in an effort to claw their way back into proceedings over the course of the 2nd-half, but ultimately saw their efforts come up short.

The Irons, as a result, remain 17th in the Premier League table, just a solitary point clear of the bottom three.

Thomas Frank’s Brentford, on the other hand, have surged into the top half.
