West Ham United narrowed the gap with Manchester United.

West Ham United won 4-2 over Brentford in the 26th round of the Premier League (PL) in the 2023-24 season at London Stadium at 5 a.m. on the 27th (Korea time). This made West Ham eighth with 39 points and Brentford 16th with 25 points.

The home side West Ham pulled out a 4-2-3-1 formation. Bowen, Kudus, Ward-Prouse, Paqueta, Álvarez, Soucek, Emerson, Mavropanos, Jouma, Coufal and Areola were the starters.

In response, the away team Brentford launched a 3-5-2 formation. Mufei, Tony, Reguilon, Jensen, Nergor, Onyeka, Lewis Porter, Mi, Ayer, Jorgensen and Flecken started.

West Ham opened the scoring. In the second minute of the first half, Kudus attempted a left footed shot in front of the penalty box, but failed to hit it properly, heading to the side line rather than the net.

West Ham pushed forward from the start of the game. After receiving Bowen’s pass in the fourth minute of the first half, Coufal crossed from the right side and Ward-Prouse turned his head. However, he did not head to the net and luckily connected to the rushing Soucek. Soucek shot straight away, but it went over the net.

West Ham scored the opening goal. He stole the ball through pressure in the fifth minute of the first half, passed Soucek, Paqueta, and Ward-Prauss, and caught Emerson from the left. Bowen, who received Emerson’s pass, attempted a left-footed outfront shot inside the penalty box. Bowen’s shot shook the net to avoid defense.

West Ham scored an additional goal. Again, it was Bowen. He brought the offense to Brentford’s pass miss in the seventh minute of the first half, and Coufal, who received Kudus’ pass, crossed from the right side and Bowen scored a multi-goal goal with his left foot.

Brentford scored one goal back. Jorgensen cut off the ball that Jouma cleared in the 13th minute of the first half. Lewis Potter caught the ball through Tony. Lewis Porter hit and entered, but then Mufei shot when he fell and split the net.

West Ham knocked Brentford’s goal again. Soucek, who received a throw-in in the 21st minute of the first half, gave it to Coufal and crossed from the right side. Paqueta tried to shoot a left-footed volley but turned away from the goal. 여우알바

The match was played by West Ham. At the 40th minute of the first half, he had a short free kick from the left side, and Emersong, who received a pass from Paqueta, crossed it from the left side, and Soucek hit the head but passed it over the net.

Brentford also fought back. In the second minute of added time, he got a free kick from the left side and Reguilon crossed. West Ham’s defense kicked it with his head, but Brentford’s attack continued. Tony shot as he fell in the penalty box, but it went off the post. However, Tony’s position was ahead and the offside was declared. In the end, the first half ended with West Ham leading 2-1.

In the second half, both teams aggressively launched attacks to score, but they did not create any significant opportunities. The finishing touches to the offensive situation were not smooth.

Bowen scored a hat trick. In the 18th minute of the second half, Kudus caught the ball from the right side after passing through Jouma and Coufal. Kudus dribbled into the penalty box and scored a left-footed cross. Kudus’ cross crossed the defensive key and Bowen scored the header with ease.

Brentford swallowed the disappointment. Reguilon crossed from the left side after receiving a pass from Mupay in the 21st minute of the second half. Reguilon’s cross went towards the back of Tony, but Tony scored from a difficult position. However, goalkeeper Areola blocked it.

West Ham widened the score gap. In the 24th minute of the second half, Kudus crossed from the right side and the defense cleared it with its head. Emerson caught the flowing ball and boldly hit a mid-range shot from a long distance. Emerson’s shot was sucked into a corner where the goalkeeper could not use his hands.

Brentford did not give up. At 37th minute in the second half, Wissar who received a pass from Damsgaard curled a kick in front of the penalty box to score the goal. When receiving the pass from Damsgaard, VAR conducted a video review to see if Wissar’s position was offside, but the goal was recognized as a goal. Ultimately, the match ended with West Ham’s 4-2 victory.
