Brighton 2-1

Reason for tip

West Ham haven’t failed to score in their opening three games of the season since 1994, so they should get a goal on Sunday. However, they have a terrible record against Brighton so back the visitors to secure a 2-1 victory.

Pascal Gross To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Pascal Gross scored twice against Man United on the opening day, while he had Brighton’s best chance in their draw with Newcastle. He’s been involved in seven goals in eight meetings with West Ham, making him great value to score having become more of an attacking threat this term.

Hammers face bogey side

After losing their opening two league games to nil, West Ham claimed their first victory of the season on Thursday night. They beat Viborg 3-1 in the Europa Conference League. However, they face a tough return to domestic action.

The hosts haven’t had a great record against the Seagulls over the years. West Ham have won none of their 10 Premier League games against Brighton, while they’ve conceded all 10 of those encounters.

Brighton to build on great start

While the Hammers have had a tough start, Brighton have taken four points from a possible six. They drew at home to Newcastle in their last game, but they dominated in terms of xG against a side who are set to rival them for a top-half finish.

Graham Potter has built an impressive side and it’s really paying off for them early on this term. While their issues in attack remain, they’ve turned to Pascal Gross as their main scoring threat. He scored twice at Old Trafford in their opener and he had their best chance in the stalemate with the Magpies.

Gross has been involved in seven goals in eight Premier League appearances against West Ham (3 goals, 4 assists). The Hammers are his joint-favourite side, having also had a hand in seven goals against United. Given that great track record, back Gross to score at the London Stadium.

Another road win for Brighton

In the history of the Premier League, only Aston Villa (160) have lost more home games than West Ham (159). They could well match Villa by the end of the weekend, as the visitors are a real threat on the road.

Brighton are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games, their best run in the top-flight since 1981. Since the start of last season, only Man City (49), Liverpool (44) and Chelsea (43) have won more away points than the Seagulls (32). The visitors have lost just four of their 20 games on the road, so they’re a real threat here.

On top of that, Brighton have won their last two away Premier League games in London. They won at both Arsenal and Spurs late last season, so they can add to West Ham’s misery. Given the visitors’ track record, back them draw no bet in this trip.

The Hammers haven’t failed to score in their opening three league games in a season since 1994-95, so they should notch here. However, given the Seagulls’ impressive away form I’m backing the visitors to claim a 2-1 victory.
