Brighton and Hove Albion v West Ham United Match Preview & Trends

Hammers continue Champions League mission at Brighton

With the pressure of a relegation threat now gone, Grahame Potter can enjoy the final few games of the season knowing his side’s safety is confirmed. Brighton will be missing two key players through suspension as they prepare to host West Ham United at The AmEx Stadium. Having both been sent off in their last Premier League outing, Captain Lewis Dunk and star striker Neil Maupay sit this one out but the Seagulls can still rely on the in-form Danny Welbeck who is making a late surge towards Gareth Southgate’s extended England squad for this summers European Championship.

With Chelsea losing at home to Arsenal on Wednesday evening, David Moyes will know that there is a huge opportunity to close in on the top-4 with a victory on their travels in this fixture. West ham are on the verge of achieving something remarkable and that not even the most die-hard Hammers fan could have predicted before the season began. 

The Hammers have scored in 76% of their away matches and have scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 3 away fixtures. At least one first-half goal has been scored in West Ham last 7 games and 41% of their Premier League away games this season have seen both sides score before halftime.

Brighton have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and have drawn their last 4-matches against The Hammers. The Seagulls have only won one of their last 5 games against West Ham having drawn 4 out of the last 6 matches against The Irons.

There has been an odd number of goals in each of the last 6 games played by West Ham. In fact, 76% of their Premier League away games this season finished with an odd total number of goals. There have been more goals in the first half in West Ham’s last 3 games and they have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 4 games
