FINAL-TIME: Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 West Ham United

And that’s it!


Sorry for limited updates, had big connection issues but it doesn’t matter as Said Benrahma’s first goal for the club saved the Hammers a point, cancelling out Danny Welbeck’s late opener.

HALF-TIME: Brighton 0-0 West Ham

Well, that’s the first half done.


Not much happened so far apart from the Hammers probably having to be in the lead right now.


Let’s hope the second half will be better.

Player to watch

Having missed out on his teams latest five matchups with an injury, Declan Rice is apparently back, fit and will jump straight into West Ham's starting XI.

The defensive midfielder has been a key force in the Hammers' "top six" push, and with him being back and partnering Tomas Soucek, their confidence will most certainly be back.

Previous encounters

The head-to-head record looks very much even as the last four encounters between the two teams have all ended in draws.

Although since the Seagulls' promotion in 2017 West Ham did not manage to beat them, the last time they did was a 6-0 win in 2012.

​​​​​​​And David Moyes will most certainly be hoping to have a replay of that game tonight.

Current form

After their phenomenal run of form in 2021, the Hammers looked destined for a TOP 4 finish. Unfortunately, after losing three of the latest four games, their hopes for UEFA Champions League football have taken a massive hit, and now it looks more than unlikely.

On the other hand, the hosts, similarly to the visitors, have won only one of their last five, 2-0 against Leeds United. And although they sit on the opposite side of the Premier League table to their opponents, Brighton's performances have been very good to watch.
