West Ham v Brighton Team News

Andy Carroll’s place in the team may come under scrutiny as he faces a suspension for this game due to his 2 rapid fire yellow cards in Saturday's game vs Burnley. Javier Hernandez, however, is a more than capable replacement for this game.

These teams sit in 14th (BHA) and 15th (WHU) places, respectively, only separated by goal difference. After 8 games of this year’s PL season, both the Hammers and the Seagulls have won 2, drew 2, and lost 4 games.

In terms of the head-to-head only in the top flight, Brighton have 2 victories, leaving a draw and a West Ham win. The last time they met in the top flight was in Division 1 in ‘82/83.

West Ham look to be on the up and up after only losing 1 of their last 5 games in the league, which was in a hard fought London derby vs Tottenham which finished 3-2 in the visitors’ favour. The Hammers will be looking to continue the good form after picking up 4 points in their 2 most recent games.

Pascal Groß is Brighton’s star playmaker and he has created the exact same amount of chances for his team mates since 2015 (211) as Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City. Groß has been involved in 5 of Brighton’s 6 goals this season (2 goals and 3 assists) and this is the highest percentage in the league.
