West Ham United v Brighton & Hove Albion – as it happened | Michael Cox

West Ham vs Brighton, 10pm Monday BT Sport

Who will score first? With both sides pushing for a top 10 finish, a close contest could benefit either Brighton or West Ham. The hosts have impressed under manager David Moyes but, though ranked 11th in the table, the Hammers’ drop into the relegation zone is surprising.

West Ham are trying to recover from their poor defending against Newcastle last Saturday, when Rafa Benítez ended their two-year unbeaten run at the London Stadium. Moyes’s side have made the best start to a season under their new manager, although a defeat would be a huge blow to his belief of them being a top-10 side by the time the transfer window opens.

Brighton are always giving their fans a game and winning their last four would suggest they have the consistency to put pressure on sixth-placed Burnley. There has been something of a name debate around their team, with Lewis Dunk established as the leader but Davy Propper potentially being one of the stars of the season. However, Callum Wilson’s return from injury means they are an even stronger side.
