After making a solid start to the Premier League season, the pressure has built on David Moyes after a poor run of results. West Ham now sit 12th in the league standings, and they suffered a third straight defeat in the competition last weekend when they were beaten on the road by Brentford.
Nottingham Forest sit a place below their rivals coming into this weekend, and their prospects are looking slightly better after a much-needed home win against Aston Villa last weekend. The success ended a five-game winless run in the Premier League, and a second straight victory on Saturday would send Forest into the top half of the standings.
The Hammers hold the advantage in the recent record, as they have won four of their last five home matches against Forest. Their only defeat over that period was suffered in January 1997. Meanwhile, Forest have recorded just two victories from their 17 top-flight clashes against the Hammers. The latest of those was last season at the City Ground.
Forest’s away record has continued to be a concern this season. That is evident by the fact that they have suffered more away losses than any other Premier League side since the start of last season. Over that period, they have also failed to score on 13 separate occasions.
West Ham vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
West Ham’s recent form would be a concern, as they have picked up five points from the last ten matches. Forest were very impressive against Aston Villa last weekend, and a chance could be taken on the visitors picking up a point on Sunday.
