West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – London Stadium

Date: 20th October 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

After a terrible start to the new season that saw them lose their first three games, conceding ten goals in the process, West Ham havestarted to do well this season finally.

A combination of new signings who have failed to make an impact and injuries has seen them fail to score enough goals as well as keep their oppositions from scoring.

Their manager Slaven Bilic has constantly been under pressure this season and although they still haven’t reached the level fans expect, their draw at Burnley last time was a respectable one and they will be hopeful of taking all three points from this game.

That draw means they have lost just one of their last six games winning three and drawing two.

Brighton were early season favorites for relegation but they have tried their best to show that they can survive this first season.

They lost their opening two league games and many were not surprised but they have been improving as the season goes on.

They drew their last game against Everton which made it 2 wins, 2 draws ad 4 losses from their opening 8 league games.

However, all but one of their Premier League points this season has come at home and it will be an achievement if they get at least another point in this game.
