West Ham United to Win

Reason for tip

West Ham have won 10 of their last 14 meetings with promoted sides, while they had a fantastic away record last term against weaker sides. They won seven of 10 visits to the bottom-half teams, so back them to see off a Forest outfit who are still bedding in signings.

West Ham United 1-0

Reason for tip

These two sides recorded the fewest shots of any Premier League sides last weekend, so expect goals to be at a premium in this clash. This could well be a back-to-basics game for David Moyes after their loss to Man City last time out, so back the Hammers to edge out a 1-0 win.

Nottingham Forest vs West Ham United Predictions

  • West Ham have won 10 of their last 14 clashes with promoted sides
  • The Hammers won seven of 10 trips to bottom-half teams last term
  • These two sides had the fewest shots across the Premier League’s opening weekend

City Ground back in the big time

Nottingham Forest face their first home game back in the Premier League, having lost their opener at Newcastle last weekend. With their summer spending set to continue, there’s a lot of focus around Forest as they kick-off Super Sunday’s action.

There’s also a lot of pressure on boss Steve Cooper, who faces a bit of a mismatch this weekend. This is West Ham manager David Moyes’ 623rd Premier League match as a manager, while it is only Cooper’s second.

Hammers showing promise

West Ham also started their season with a defeat, but there’s little shame in a loss to Man City. The Hammers are still on course for a strong season, after making some solid summer moves. Squad depth has been a priority for Moyes, with Antonio Scamacca looking like a smart move which adds an extra dimension to their forward line.

The Hammers aren’t going to look much changed from last season in this trip, but their improved depth should avoid the drop-off they suffered late last term. While the visitors head into this one on the back of a poor finish to the previous season, there’s plenty of reason to get behind them here.

Hammers impressive on the road

West Ham have won 10 of their last 14 Premier League games against promoted sides, so they’re worthy favourites ahead of this clash with Forest. While the hosts have improved their side, the shear number of signings is likely to cause them problems in the early weeks of the campaign.

The visitors also have a good away record behind them and that could make the difference here. Last term West Ham won seven and drew two of their trips to the bottom 10 last term, while they won four of five trips to the bottom five. Look to the Hammers to claim all three points in this trip.

Forest (5) and West Ham (6) had the fewest shots of any side in the opening round of games, with the Hammers producing the only shot on target between the pair. Given that, this looks set to be a low-scoring clash. Back the Hammers to come away with a 1-0 victory.
