Brighton and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Brighton have been fantastic so far this season, winning both games 4-1 to put themselves top of the table. They have shown defensive vulnerabilities against two of the least attacking sides in the division, though, and have conceded in their last six Premier League games. West Ham have only won three of their 19 league away games since the start of last season but have scored in 20 of their 22 competitive games since their last trip to the Amex.

Brighton vs West Ham United Predictions

  • Brighton have conceded in each of their last six Premier League games.
  • West Ham have scored in 20 of their 22 competitive games since their last trip to the Amex.
  • West Ham have won just three of their 19 top-flight away games since the start of last season.

Brighton continue to impress

Brighton have made a flying start to the 2023/24 campaign, winning both games by a 4-1 scoreline and putting up similarly impressive underlying numbers. They should have no trouble sailing to a third-successive win when they host West Ham on Saturday, although their first clean sheet of the campaign could be beyond them.

The Seagulls have scored eight goals across their two games and posted 7.52 expected goals (xG), but their forward-thinking style of play does leave a few holes at the back. They have conceded in both games against two of the least attacking sides in the top flight in Luton and Wolves, allowing their opponents 4.57 xG.

Hammers’ away-day struggles to continue

West Ham haven’t made a bad start to the season themselves, drawing at Bournemouth in gameweek one before beating London rivals Chelsea 3-1 last weekend.

David Moyes’ side were impressive against the defensively-frail Blues but they were awful on the road last season. They have won just three of their 19 league away games since the start of last season and have lost 13, including a 4-0 thrashing at the Amex in March.

Seagulls can go Marching on

Brighton should have enough to get the win on Saturday but they are without a clean sheet in six league games and have shown their vulnerabilities in their two outings this term. West Ham have scored in 20 of their 22 competitive games since their last trip to the Amex so backing Brighton and both teams to score looks a good choice.

I’m also opting for a 3-1 correct score prediction, with Roberto de Zerbi’s side scoring at least three goals in four of their last seven league matches.

Solly March is worth consideration in the anytime goalscorer market, too. He has scored three goals in two games so far and only Bryan Mbeumo (2.97 xG) and Mo Sala (2.11 xG), both of whom have taken penalties, have generated more xG than the Brighton attacker.
