Paul Merson has provided his prediction for the upcoming Premier League match between West Ham and Brentford.
The Bees have already shown that they could be dangerous opponents following their win over Wolves and a draw with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
However, Merson still backs the Hammers to secure another victory on Sunday with a score of 2 – 1.
“Brentford are my Achilles heel, I’m always a million miles off when it comes to predicting their Premier League games,” he said.
“Ivan Toney has already shown his class in the Premier League and Brentford are a good side, but I fancy West Ham to win this one because they are a better team than what they get credit for.
“Michail Antonio is such a good player and if you look at West Ham’s results, they have actually made a solid start to the Premier League season if you overlook the penalty miss against Manchester United.
“They have carried on from where they left off last season and are an underrated side, in my opinion.”
