West Ham vs Brighton – Preview, and Prediction

West Ham vs Brighton – West Ham and Brighton are progressively returning to the Premier League top six with strong performances.

It was a dramatic Christmas for West Ham, as they defeated Arsenal by a score of 2-0, which was their first victory at the Emirates Stadium since 2015.

Three wins enabled the Hammers to move sixth in the standings, three points behind Spurs as I write this match preview. Brighton & Hove Albion are 8th, three points behind East London rivals.

West Ham stunned the Gunners on the day Roberto De Zerbi scored. In an exciting match against Tottenham, two penalties helped Brighton win 4-2.

On Thursday, the Seagulls appeared to have regained their high-scoring trend from the previous day thanks to their continuous pressing and swift counterattacks.

Despite recent wins, both sides have many injured players. West Ham added Mohammed Kudus and Lucas Paqueta to their nursing staff. Nayef Aguerd and Michail Antonio are already out.

Brighton’s roster grew to 11 after Luis Dunk’s ban, making things worse. Buonanotte, Ansu Fati, Solly March, Simon Adingra, and Kaoru Mitoma will miss London Stadium.

West Ham vs Brighton – Betting Analysis

West Ham beat Brighton 3-1 at the Amex Stadium earlier this season, after Brighton had won three straight. James Ward-Prowse, Michail Antonio, Jarrod Bowen, and Pascal Gross scored for the Hammers.

Two wins and four draws have kept Brighton unblemished against West Ham in six visits. In four of five h2h encounters at this ground, both teams scored.

Both teams’ injuries occurred at the wrong time, but they may still win on Tuesday. As the top pick for this match, we back both teams to score over 2.5 goals.
