Brighton vs West Ham: Predictions

West Ham’s top-four ambitions now hang by a thread with just three games remaining. A win for the Hammers against the Seagulls could take them within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea who slipped up on Wednesday night as they tasted defeat at home against Arsenal.

Brighton are now safe from relegation following Burnley’s win at Craven Cottage on Monday night which sent Scott Parker’s Fulham back down to the Championship. With the pressure now off Graham Potter’s side it will be interesting to see how his side fare given they have only won one of their last six league games.

Champions League will still be the dream for David Moyes’ side, however, their recent slip-ups has opened the door for sixth-placed Liverpool who sit just one point behind the Hammers but with a game in hand. European football of any calibre will mark a successful season for the Londoners who narrowly avoided relegation last season.

Brighton vs West Ham: Match Stats

No player for West Ham has scored more headed goals than their midfielder Tomas Soucek (3). The Czech international has proven to be an inspired signing and he will be looking to sign this campaign off with double figures. Soucek currently has nine goals to his name for the season and netted in the last meeting between the two sides.

Yves Bissouma has received the most (8) yellow cards of any Brighton or West Ham player this season. The midfielder has proven to be their midfield general this season but with West Ham likely imposing their dominance on the game it could leave the Mali international with a lot on his plate on Saturday night.
