Brighton & Hove Albion

Preview | May 22

Brighton & Hove Albion-West Ham United

Brighton host West Ham.

Just one game to go. Fresh off a good showing in their last Premier League match against Man City, West Ham travel to the AMEX to take on a Brighton squad coming off a 1-1 stalemate with Leeds. The Hammers will certainly feel pressure to come out strong, as the last league meeting between these sides ended in a 1-1 draw. The larger history hasn't been any more kind to West Ham, who haven't been able to muster a win in their last six Premier League meetings with the Seagulls.

Brighton | DWWDL | 10th | Top Scorer: N. Maupay (8)

Brighton are a side feeling up rather than down. They come into this one unbeaten in their previous 4 matches. The Seagulls have a balanced attack, top ten in the EPL in both average possession (54.9%) and shots per match (12.7). Cucurella will be looking to keep the pressure up after recording 2.2 tackles per match in their last 5.

West Ham | DWLLD | 7th | Top Scorer: J. Bowen (12)

West Ham currently sit in 7th in the table and look to earn points in this one. The Hammers have taken 12 shots per match this season (4.2 of which have been on target). That shot accuracy has contributed to their season average of 1.3 xG (expected goals) per match coming into this one. Declan Rice has been their top tackler this season with 39 tackles won (27th in the EPL).

Brighton-West Ham Prediction: 2-0

Brighton's solid defence should be the foundation for another three points.

Did you know? The most common scoreline between the two teams in Premier League history is a 1-1 draw – which has occurred 3 times.

Can the Seagulls keep their point streak going? Will the Hammers earn a victory? Now that you're informed, place a bet on the match, and much more at PokerStars Sports.
