West Ham welcome Brighton to the London Stadium this Friday evening, as both teams look to improve on last weeks result in which they both surrendered wins due to last minute equalisers against Burnley and Everton respectively.

West Ham played the majority of their game against Burnley with ten men after Andy Carroll’s early dismissal, which led to a stern defensive performance and they almost held out for a win until Chris Wood fired in a 85th minute equaliser.

Whereas, Brighton took a late lead against Everton though Anthony Knockheart scoring making fans think they had claimed an important victory, only for Wayne Rooney to smash in a 90nd penalty to break the Seagulls hearts.

Team News:

Brighton on the other hand are still without ex-Hammer Sam Baldock who is still out with a calf problem. Shane Duffy is expected to miss out this game after being injured last time out. Midfielders Biram Kayal and Steven Sidwell also miss out with long-term injuries. Forward Tomar Hemed also misses out as he continues to serve his suspension.

Predicted Line-ups:

West Ham: Hart, Zabaleta, Reid, Fonte, Cresswell, Obiang, Arnautovic, Lanzini, Antonio, Sakho and Hernandez.

Formation: 4-1-3-2

Brighton: Ryan, Bruno, Hunemeier, Dunk, Suttner, Knockheart, Stephens, Propper, March, Gross and Murray.

Formation: 4-4-1-1

Prediction: West Ham 2 Brighton 1

This should be an exciting contest as both teams have been setting up with attack in mind, but with West Ham having a much stronger squad they should have to much for Brighton this time out. As long as they take the game seriously that is, as West Ham have the ability not to turn up to games.
