West Ham United resume Premier League duties on Sunday afternoon (14:00) when they welcome Nottingham Forest to the London Stadium.

The Hammers took a huge step towards the Europa League knockout stages with a 1-0 win over Olympiacos on Thursday night, while Forest snapped their winless streak last weekend with a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.

West Ham vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

  • West Ham to win to nil @ 9/4
  • Mohamed Kudus to score anytime @ 11/5

Team News

Lucas Paqueta and Edson Alvarez will return from one-game suspensions for the Hammers, while Kurt Zouma missed the midweek clash against Olympiacos due to injury, so he's unlikely to feature here.

As for Forest, Chris Wood, Felipe and Divock Origi are all major doubts for Sunday, while Callum Hudson-Odoi continues to recover from a thigh injury.

Match Odds

West Ham are 9/10 favourites for the victory, while Forest are 3/1 to pick up their first away victory since September, and the draw is 13/5.

Five of West Ham's last seven Premier League fixtures have ended with over 3.5 goals, which is priced up at 2/1.

West Ham to win to nil @ 9/4

As mentioned above, the Hammers secured a morale-boosting victory over Olympiacos in midweek, and David Moyes will be hoping that translates into a victory this weekend.

West Ham are without a Premier League win since September, and while Forest looked impressive against Aston Villa last time out, they have struggled on their travels this term - they have taken just four points of the 18 available.

Forest lost last year's meeting at the London Stadium 4-0 – and after failing to score in their past three away games, a win with a first league clean sheet since September could be on the cards for the hosts.

Mohamed Kudus to score anytime @ 9/4

Mohamed Kudus has impressed since his arrival from Ajax in the summer.

The 23-year-old scored in the recent Carabao Cup win over Arsenal, and also managed to get on the scoresheet in last weekend's defeat to Brentford.

The Ghana international has scored four of his five goal at home this season, so he looks a decent pick to bag anytime on Sunday.
