Before the beginning of the match, the fans and players gave an applause to the deceased, greatest footballer of all time, Pele, with the presence of Brazilian Lucas Paqueta in the center circle of the field, leading the tribute.

The host almost got an opener after Declan Rice’s strike hit the outside of the post. Craig Dawson almost put West Ham ahead from the corner kick, but the header went wide.

Ivan Toney scored an excellent header against West Ham

Toney scored his 20th Premier League goal of 2022, making him just the fourth Englishman in the past ten years to do so after Jamie Vardy, Jermain Defoe, and Harry Kane.

Toney’s goal silenced the West Ham fans, who were cheering up the players in the first 18 minutes.

Ben Mee continued with his excellent defense after putting his body on the line to defend Bowen’s shot, and West Ham’s Gianluca Scamacca, who had the opportunity to put the ball past the goalkeeper, headed it straight to him.

The home team persisted in patiently probing as Emerson tried to shoot past the defenders after Angelo Ogbonna’s ball inside the box, but Raya successfully deflected his near-post attempt.

Da Silva made it two nil before the end of the first half, but the West Ham fans were not having any of it. The West Ham fans booed their own players.

Brentford goalkeeper Raya didn’t have a lot to do in the second half as West Ham’s attack was not intelligent enough to put one past Raya.
