West Ham United Predicted XI v Brentford as Moyes sack talks intensify

West Ham United welcome Brentford to town on December 30 in a must-win Premier League clash for David Moyes, who can decide his fate.

The Hammers come into the game on the back of a 3-1 defeat at Arsenal, which has taken them even closer to the dreaded Premier League relegation zone.

Moyes will now make two changes to the team that lost to Arsenal, with his attacking options ravaged by injuries leaving the Scot with a selection headache as talk of the office

Lukasz Fabianski should remain between the sticks for the Hammers, he is a tried and tested pair of gloves for Moyes and there is little reason for him to be dropped.

In defence, Moyes could opt for the same backline as he did for the Arsenal game, mainly due to injuries to regular members of the starting eleven such as Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd.

Pablo Fornals could replace Tomas Soucek as Declan Rice’s partner in the Hammers’ engine room for the game against Brentford, Moyes might want a fresher pair of legs.

Saïd Benrahma should keep his place in Moyes’ starting eleven, he won a penalty against Arsenal and has been in fine form this campaign.

Jarrod Bowen and Lucas Paqueta should also keep their places in the Hammers XI, with Moyes’ attacking points limited in the game, this pair will be desperately needed for some ideas.

With injuries to Gianluca Scamacca and now Michail Antonio, Moyes may have to look to youngster Divin Mubama to spearhead his attack at the Hammers in his first Premier League outing, coming on as a substitute for Antonio against Arsenal on December 26.

West Ham United XI v Leicester City Prediction – Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Kehrer, Creswell; Fornals, Rice; Benrahma, Paqueta, Bowen; Mubama.
