West Ham – Brighton – The next nineth round of the English Premiership starts on Friday night when two teams have been held in London that have won eight points so far, but because of a slightly better difference, Brighton guests are at 14, host West Ham on the 15th place on the table. Otherwise, both teams have won the scoring last weekend, while they have to point out that they have last resorted six times in the championship, and then the “hammer” celebrated in both matches.
That is why the home team is now expecting all three points in the duel with popular “gulls”, since the Brighton team has been much better at home than on the side since the start of the season. In addition, the “hammers” from London were in their last domestic performance with 1: 0 over Swansea, while their second win in this Premier League season also came in front of their supporters, and in the fourth round over another newcomer Huddersfield.
But as the remaining six matches won only two more points, then it is no surprise that the coaches of Bilic currently have only three seats above the exit zone. However, after that triumph over Swansea, they also showed a good start at Burnley in the last round, despite the fact that in the first half of the Carrous striker, they eventually managed to reach a 1: 1 rhythm. Let’s just say that this suspended Carrola will have to break this duel with Brighton and Collins’s injured again.

When it comes to returnees in the English elite after 34 years of absenteeism, we can freely say that they are in the Premiership for a while, according to expectations, since after eight wins they are on a solid 14th place on the table, with two more than 18th Leicester. However, what was worrisome to Hughton coach before this match with West Ham was the fact that in four guest appearances they managed to win only one point, even in the third round against Watford.
On the other hand, on their field, after the defeat of Manchester City, they had to win over West Bromwich and Newcastle and past Everton in the aftermath of the 90th minute penalty. Of course this is no good for the team’s self-confidence, just like the newest injury to the standard Duffy stunt, while Sidwell and Kayal, and Baldock striker, as well as the suspended attacker Hemed, will be away from him on Friday night.

West Ham – Brighton
Bearing in mind that the “checkers” from London play better, while on the other hand, Brighton’s newcomer has managed to score just one point for the last four games, then it is quite logical that we expect a safe host to win at this match.
