West Ham vs Brighton (By: Saconex)
England Premier League
West Ham (11) vs Brighton (13)
West Ham are coming from losing 2-0 away vs Burnley (18), after turning the match around vs Southampton (17) before that, winning 1-2. Total record is 8-3-9 with 27-30 in goal difference, and a win can possibly take the Hammers up to 8th. Home record so far: 4-1-5. Samir Nasri is signed and Marko Arnautovic is reported fit again. No other new missings since their last matches, but Zabaleta is doubtful.
Brighton are coming from another strong performance at home, winning 1-0 vs Everton (10). They are for sure playing best in front of their fans, away record of 1-7-7 says it all. As it stands they have this gap of 6 points down to Crystal Palace (14) and it is only 6 points up to Leicester (7). Goalkeeper Mat Ryan & Jahanbakhsh still on international duty.
* Brighton won this match 0-3 last season
* Brighton also won the reverse fixture back in October by 1-0
* 3 of 4 West Ham home victories ended with 2+ goals wins this season
I expect the hosts to get back winning here and take revenge from specially last season 0-3 loss. Player by player they have a lot more quality in my opinion, and they are probably fired up after some disappointing results vs Burnley (18) last time out, and their last home match ending up by losing 0-2 vs Watford (9). Brighton isnt the same team on their travels, and although they have a good record vs West Ham lately, Im getting surprised if they manage to create problems for the hosts here. Overall I think West Ham are capable of finding the net tonight several times tonight, taking in mind their quality up front.
