Tip Reasoning

  • Brighton haven’t lost any of their last seven meetings with West Ham.
  • Both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings between Brighton and West Ham.

Make or break time for West Ham

A run of three defeats in four games has threatened to scupper an entire campaign of good work for West Ham and with their top-four hopes evaporating, the Irons need a win at Brighton on Saturday.

The Hammers huffed and puffed against Everton in their last Premier League test, eventually losing 1-0 to at the London Stadium for the second time in a row.

If West Ham can shake themselves out of their late-season slump, then a victory at Brighton would cut the gap between them and fourth placed Chelsea to just three points ahead of the final two rounds of fixtures, though the Irons’ record against the Seagulls suggests they might struggle to succeed on the south coast.

Brighton tough to beat at home

Brighton lost the game along with two players to red cards on a dramatic evening against Wolves at Molineux last week, though Albion have been posting much better results at home.

The Seagulls have been shot down just twice in their last nine league assignments at the Amex Stadium, while six of the same games were accompanied by clean sheets.

With key central defender Lewis Dunk suspended following his dismissal last week, another shutout could be out of reach for Brighton against West Ham however.

Brighton to provide a sticky test for Irons

Brighton are unbeaten in seven meetings with West Ham since their promotion to the Premier League back in 2017, and with the nervous-looking Irons’ form dropping off, Albion could upset the Londoners again.

Each of the last four encounters between the teams – including their 2-2 draw in the capital in December – have ended in score draws, and a similar outcome is anticipated when they renew acquaintances on Saturday.

Backing both teams to score at the Amex Stadium is advised as a result, while our 1-1 correct score prediction tips the Seagulls to put another dent in West Ham’s Champions League qualification charge.
