Brighton v West Ham tips: Will West Ham continue their unbeaten streak?

| 04.10.2018

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome West Ham United to the Amex Stadium tonight in search of a first win since the 3-2 victory over Manchester United.

West Ham are coming off the back of seven points from three games including picking up four points from matches against Chelsea and Man Utd.

They will face a tough task against a Brighton side who have only lost five times at home in the league since the start of the 2017-18 season.

This one could get feisty and we take a look at who could land the telling blow.

Match Odds

Brighton are 33/20 to maintain their impressive home form. West Ham’s last away day was a 3-1 win over Everton.

The Hammers are 17/10 to bag another victory on the road. The last draw between the pair was a 2005 Championship tie which ended 2-2.

A 90th minute Dean Hammond equaliser cancelled out goals from Nigel Reo-Coker and Marlon Harewood. The stalemate this time is at 11/5.

Talking Tactics

Felipe Anderson has profited hugely from Manuel Pellegrini’s shift in personnel. The inclusion of Declan Rice and Pedro Obiang to shield the back four has meant Anderson can stay on the front foot.

Pellegrini is likely to keep the same back four including new recruits Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena in defence.

Marko Arnautovic will surely lead the line again.

Brighton may keep with Jurgen Locadia up front and pair him with four goal striker Glenn Murray.

Solly March could make way for Jose Izquierdo. Last year’s player of the year Pascal Gross is still sidelined with injury.

Goalscorer odds

Murray will be Brighton’s chief goal threat. The evergreen 35-year-old ‘s 6/4 to score Anytime.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh is 11/4 to grab his first goal for Brighton.

Arnautovic scored the decisive third goal against United and is 9/2 to bag first.

Lucas Perez may get some game time in this one and is 9/4 to break his duct for The Hammers.
