Team News

West Ham
Declan Rice and Aaron Cresswell return after serving bans in Thursday’s Europa Conference League tie. Craig Dawson is a doubt so Thilo Kehrer could make his Premier League debut.

Pervis Estupinan is in contention to make his debut while Jakub Moder is the only absentee for the Seagulls.

Match Preview

West Ham are still awaiting their first Premier League goal of the season after nil defeats to Manchester City and Nottingham Forest, and another tough test awaits at home against Brighton.

The Hammers can be excused for a 2-0 loss to City on the opening weekend of the campaign, but they were punished for wasting in the 1-0 loss at Forest, having led the number of shots, hitting the woodwork twice while wasting a second-half penalty.

The Seagulls, meanwhile, have four points to show from their first two assignments as they followed a 2-1 victory at Manchester United with a goalless draw at home to Newcastle.

On another day Brighton might have celebrated their success against the Magpies as they forced seven shots on target over the visitors, illustrating again why many believe they should raid the transfer market for a new striker .

But Graham Potter has his side well-prepared to face stiff opposition on their travels and it’s easy to envision this pairing negating each other, just as they have in six of their last seven Premier League encounters.

Key stat

Draw specialists Brighton split the spoils in 15 of their 38 league games last season.
