The Hammers are trying to stay in the top half of the table, while the Seagulls are looking for the first win in six games. Check out our West Ham United vs Brighton Preview for this Premier League encounter.
West Ham United Recent Form & Team News
A 3-0 drubbing at Chelsea last time around was West Ham’s second scoring blank this Premier League campaign, making it two losses in four league games (W1, D1, L2). It was also the first time in four league matches that the Hammers couldn’t recover points after conceding first in respective matches (W1, D2, L1).
Impressive recent home form (W3, D2, L1) has propped West Ham to top-half with their only loss in that sequence coming against the league’s best travelers Manchester United. Scoring first is a big indicator of how matches go, as the team doing so has avoided defeat in six of West Ham’s seven PL home games (W4, D2, L1).
Player to watch: West Ham have won all three PL matches where Jarrod Bowen has netted, twice as their last scorer.
Hot stat: Late goals have played a part for the Hammers so far, with six of West Ham’s 21 PL goals arriving beyond the 80th minute.
David Moyes will be without Arthur Masuaku (knee), while Michail Antonio (thigh) and Manuel Lanzini (thigh) are questionable.
Brighton Recent Form & Team News
Brighton needed a goal beyond the 80th minute to draw 1-1 last time around, extending their Premier League winless run (D3, L2). In turn, they remain only two points above the relegation zone. Notably, six of Brighton’s 16 PL goals have come beyond the 80th minute, with three strikes earning draws after conceding first.
London trips haven’t been Brighton’s forte, with just two wins in their last 17 such PL away games (D6, L9). Yet, the Seagulls have won twice on the road this PL campaign (W2, D2, L3) earning them two-thirds of their season points. Curiously, Brighton have ended three of their six PL road trips with ten men, but avoided defeat every time (W2, D1).
Players to watch: Brighton have remained unbeaten in both of the PL games where Danny Welbeck has scored (W1, D1).
Graham Potter cannot count on Florin Andone (knee) and Jose Izquierdo (thigh). Tariq Lamptey is questionable due to a thigh injury.
