The pressure is mounting on David Moyes after West Ham have lost each of their previous three in the Premier League. The Hammers will be hoping to get back on track when they host Nottingham Forest at the London Stadium on Sunday.
Premier League Preview
There are growing calls from West Ham fans that are calling for the hierarchy to consider the position of David Moyes, as the Hammers have quickly petered away in the race for a European spot this term after going four without a win in the Premier League. The Hammers come into this match after suffering three straight defeats in the competition.
That run of form leaves them sitting 12th at present, but they could climb back up to ninth if they are able to claim maximum points this weekend. However, it would be a pressing concern that they have allowed 20 goals this term, which is the fifth most in the English top flight at this stage of the season.
Nottingham Forest will be the visitors to London this weekend, as the Midlands side finally bounced back to winning ways in their previous match to end a six-game wait for a victory. The success moved Forest up to 13th in the standings, and a win at the London Stadium this weekend could lift them into the top half.
Forest deserve credit for their performance against Aston Villa last weekend, as they netted goals at crucial stages to take the fixture away from their local rivals. Ola Aina netted the opener after just five minutes, before the points were secured following Oriel Mangala’s effort just two minutes into the second half.
West Ham vs Nottingham Forest Head to Head
Each of the previous four matches between these sides have been won by the side with home field advantage, while there has been just one away win in the last six. Forest were 4-0 losers in this exact fixture last term, and were also beaten in an FA Cup tie away from home against their rivals in 2011.
West Ham vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
Home advantage could be key this weekend, as West Ham have won each of their last three home matches against Forest. The pressure will be on this weekend, but we could see the Hammers getting back on track at the London Stadium.
