Brighton News and Form
The Seagulls were one of the star performers from the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. They upset the odds by producing a 3-0 away win at Watford. After all their struggles last season, avoiding relegation by two points, that was a massive result for them. So Graham Potter’s men are up and running and will now look to capitalize in their first home game of the season as well. Brighton’s first goal at Watford was through an own-goal by the home side before Florin Andone and Neal Maupay added to their tally.
Last season Brighton won just three times away from the Amex. That’s how big of a result it was for them at Vicarage Road seven days ago. On home soil in the top flight in the last campaign, Brighton posted a W6 D5 L8 record. They lost four of their last five home fixtures last season (D1) and across the course of the campaign only averaged exactly one goal per game at the Amex. In total, they bagged a clean sheet in a quarter of home fixtures. All but one of Brighton’s six home wins happened by a one-goal margin.
Brighton v West Ham Head to Head
The Seagulls earned four points against the Hammers last season
West Ham are winless in four previous EPL games against Brighton (D1 L3)
Brighton have won their last two home games against the Irons
Four of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
West Ham News and Form
West Ham were destroyed 5-0 by Manchester City last weekend. It was actually a game in which the Hammers started very well. They had plenty of possession early on in Man City’s half of the pitch, but couldn’t press home an advantage. Once they had conceded, the floodgates just opened. They will have to shake that off quickly and that should be easy to do given how good Manchester City are. It was a bit of a thankless way to start the new season.
West Ham do look as if they have a decent attack going this season and when it clicks they should be fine. Last season on their top-flight travels the Hammers produced a W6 D5 L10 record. They did win their final two road games of the campaign which came after a run of just one point from seven road fixtures. Their end of season away wins were good ones at Tottenham and Watford as well. In total West Ham managed a clean sheet in just 16% of their away games last season. Will their defensive output be better than it was last weekend?
