West Ham vs Brighton Prediction, Preview, H2H and Team News
David Moyes and West Ham United will be looking to get back to winning ways as they go head to head with Brighton and Hove Albion at the London Stadium.
Despite the 3-0 loss to Chelsea, West Ham will be up to continue a season way better than their past ones. They have picked 21 points from 14 games, with six wins, three draws, and five defeats.
West Ham are currently 10th, just five points off the fourth spot. Not to forget that they are just three points ahead of the Eagles who are 13th.
A win or a loss, both will have consequences as the table looks big but the teams aren't apart from each other in terms of points.
Brighton come into the game with back-to-back draws against Fulham and Sheffield United respectively.
Graham Potter's side have been very unpredictable this season and they will have to play their A-game in order to avoid any chances to drop into the relegation zone.
West ham vs Brighton H2H Record:
Out of the eight games played between the two, Brighton have won three, and the Hammers have been victorious twice, including three draws.
Both the teams have a pretty similar form in their recent games and considering the unpredictability of the 2020-21 season, both the teams are still doing better than a lot of teams. West Ham United have won three of their last six games, with two losses, and a draw.
The Seagulls have won only one, drawing and losing two each.

West ham vs Brighton Prediction:
Both the teams are not much different from each other. With Antonio, West Ham would be the favorites because of the kind of risk-taking he brings to the team.
Without Lamptey, Brighton will be without one of their best defenders and an attacker who tends to do a lot from the right flank.
It will be a physical game and it is expected that the game will go down to the wire.
