At the beginning of April, West Ham fans lived a real fairy tale. Their club made it to the Europa League semifinals, while in the Premier League they had a chance to finish inside top 4. They dreamed of the Champions League, but that didn’t happen. Unfortunately for them, West Ham ended last season disastrously. Frankfurt eliminated them in Europe, while they finished the Premier League in seventh place.
The bad form from April and May continued at start of the new season. West Ham suffered two defeats in the first two rounds and now they need to get points against Brighton. During this summer, more than 100 million euros were invested in new players. Gianluca Scamacca, Nayef Aguerd, Maxwel Cornet, Thilo Kehrer and Alphonse Areola arrived at West Ham.
West Ham want to stay in the Premier League top half and anything below that will now be considered a failure. David Moyes has led this team in an excellent way in the past period and he certainly knows how to get his team out of a crisis. The best way would be a win against Brighton.
Brighton replaced Chris Hughton with Graham Potter as head coach three years ago. They wanted a complete change of the system and desire for team to play appealing and offensive football. That’s never easy in the Premier League, but Potter did everything they asked. Brighton finished in ninth place last season, although financially they are one of the cheapest clubs in competition.
The Seagulls showed that they will record outstanding results this season as well when they shockingly beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in the opening round. Last weekend, Brighton played 0:0 against Newcastle and they can be more than satisfied with four points in two rounds. Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma are no longer here, but that is a reality of all similar clubs.
On Sunday, Brighton face another difficult task. They will visit London to play versus West Ham, who are desperate for points, but this may be the chance for Potter’s team to make another surprise. An outcome in which they weren’t defeated would be more than satisfactory for them.
Quite shockingly, West Ham never defeated Brighton in the Premier League. They played 10 games so far. Six times it was a draw and four times the Seagulls won.
Nayef Aguerd is injured and won’t play for West Ham in this match. Jakub Moder is the only one unavailable player in Brighton squad.
West Ham vs. Brighton Prediction
West Ham won’t allow themselves a third defeat in a row. They are a better team than Brighton, they will be playing on their home ground and they should get a positive result. This is why Asian Handicap +0 is the right option because in case of a draw, this bet will be void.
