What Trueform says for Brighton vs West Ham
West Ham have put a poor start to the season behind them with some positive performances and look worth following when they visit Brighton.
The Seagulls have gone five Premier League games without a win and have conceded a couple of goals in each of the last four of those fixtures.
Getting 39/20 for the Hammers is rated great value and we’re on an away win as our first Brighton vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
To be fair, Brighton have faced some tough opponents of late, but they will still be feeling a bit of pressure after only picking up two points out of the last 15.
Albion showed some resilience at Etihad Stadium but goals in the 29th and 65th minutes from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero earned Manchester City a smooth 2-0 success.
Hughton accepted Brighton were distinctly second best and, although there was no disgrace in the scoreline, the Seagulls boss was disappointed by aspects of his side’s performance.
He said: “I wanted us to be better on the ball. The thing I was most disappointed with was the second goal. I thought we could have stopped it at source and at 1-0 you never know what could happen – not that we would have deserved it.”
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Kayal, Bissouma, Knockaert, March, Propper, Locadia.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham turned a corner when prevailing 3-1 at Everton and have built on that by drawing with Chelsea and beating Manchester United, as well as thumping Macclesfield 8-0 in the EFL Cup.
They enjoyed some good fortune versus the Red Devils via a heavily-deflected Victor Lindelof own goal, but also struck through Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic in a deserved 3-1 victory.
“In the last three league games, we have been brilliant,” beamed Arnautovic. “We needed to do our jobs and we did it excellently. That’s why we deserved the win.”
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have been far more fluent up front and appear capable of causing opposition defences all sorts of problems, while 31-year-old Mark Noble is playing better than ever.
Let’s add 21/2 for a 2-1 away victory to our Brighton vs West Ham betting tips.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Diop, Masuaku, Felipe Anderson, Obiang, Noble, Rice, Arnautovic, Yarmolenko.
Man City 2-0 BRIGHTON
WEST HAM 3-1 Man Utd – Felipe Anderson, Victor Lindelof (og), Marko Arnautovic
Head-to-head: Brighton 3-1 West Ham, West Ham 0-3 Brighton
