Brighton are in desperate need of a win as they struggle to put an end to their fall down the league table. They will continue their debut Premier League campaign with West Ham United’s trip to Amex Stadium on Saturday.
The Seagulls are without a win in their last six league games, and they are placed 15th in the league with 24 points – just a single point clear of the relegation zone.
The Seagulls came out with a 1-1 draw from Southampton on Wednesday. However, they will aim to put an end to their winless run against an injury-ravaged Hammers side.
The Hammers have only three more points in their account, and they occupy the 12th spot. However, the London club have looked like a top-half side since the arrival of David Moyes in the hot seat.
West Ham are undefeated in their last six games in the league with two wins and four draws. Their recent unbeaten run has helped them move away from the drop-zone, but they are still just four points clear of the drop zone.
Ahead of the game, Moyes would be mindful that any kind of slip in the form or confidence of his side at this point of the season can undo all the hard work done in the recent weeks.
Back in October, the Seagulls claimed a 3-0 win over their opponents at London Stadium.
