West Ham are to be bossted by the return of Lucas Paqueta for tonights Premier League clash with Brentford at the London Stadium.

Our Hammers have been in terrible form of late, without a victory in 2024 thus far in the 8 games played in all competitions, with the pressure now at breaking point on the manager David Moye to turn the situation around.

It will be hoped that the return of Paqueta will provide the much needed spark that has been missing. although the players too need to up their fight and hunger which has been absent for a number of weeks.

The Brazilian Paqueta is set to return, and if fit to do so, it’s likely he’ll start to give the side and the crowd a much-needed lift ahead of the crunch encounter under the floodlights.

Max Cornet is a dount through injury whilst Kalvin Phillips is suspended following his red card last weekend against Nottingham Forest.

It’s understood that George Earthy, Lewis Orford and Oliver Scarles are all in the squad tonight.

Bryan Mbeumo and Ethan Pinnock are both still unavailable for the visitors, but Thomas Frank has no new injury concerns.

Tonights match kicks off at 8pm and is being shown live on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League & Sky Sports Ultra HDR.
