Brighton’s top-six ambitions took a hit last time out, with a 1-0 defeat to Fulham at the Amex. It was the Seagull’s first loss in eight matches across all competitions and with them not playing in the league last weekend, they now go into this weekend’s round of matches four points behind sixth place Liverpool with two games in hand.
The Seagulls have never lost in 11 previous Premier League meetings with West Ham (W5 D6), both the most they’ve faced a side without losing and the most West Ham have faced an opponent without winning in the competition.
The Hammers however, moved out of the relegation places with goals from Danny Ings (2), Declan Rice and Michail Antonio completing a 4-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest and a win here would see West Ham winning consecutive league games for just the second time this season, after beating Wolves and Fulham in October.
David Moyes’ side have won just two of their last 20 Premier League away games (D4 L14), and are winless in 10 since a 1-0 win at Aston Villa in August (D3 L7). The Hammers last had a longer run without a league win on the road between December 2014 and May 2015 (12).
