    West Ham and Brighton set for stalemate in east London

    West Ham’s great start to the Premier League season is coming undone. David Moyes has a small squad and the effects of the Premier League, Carabao Cup, and Europa League are taking a toll on the side.

    The Hammers are still fourth in the Premier League, but they have lost back-to-back games in the competition. On Wednesday night, West Ham have a short turnaround from Sunday’s 2-1 loss at Manchester City.

    Brighton will arrive at the London Stadium with the aim of ending their own winless record. The Seagulls, who start the campaign in great form, are now winless in eight straight matches in all competitions.

    Graham Potters’ team is the draw masters of the Premier League. Brighton have collected six draws in 13 matches this season in the division.

    West Ham took 12 points from the last 18 on offer in the league. Although they have lost back-to-back games, the Hammers outscored their last six opponents 10-6.

    Brighton took a mere four points from the last 18 available to them. They scored a mere four goals while conceding nine times.

    The last five league games between West Ham and Brighton finished as draws. Each of the five games saw both teams score goals and three of the five matches ended with over 2.5 goals.

    Moyes has two players on the West Ham injury list going into the midweek home match. Aaron Cresswell and Angelo Ogbonna are both suffering from injuries. However, Cresswell looks set to return while Ogbonna will miss out once more.

    Brighton manager Potter will be without the duo of Steven Alzate and Danny Welbeck. He has no new injury issues going into the fixture.

    West Ham have won their last two matches at home. Ten of 18 points have been taken by West Ham at the London Stadium. Brighton have failed to win their last four away games. Their most recent away fixture against Aston Villa ended in a 2-0 loss.

    The Seagulls have scored just six goals on the road. The good news for Potter is that the team has allowed just six away goals.

    These teams have drawn five straight Premier League matches with both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals scored.

    Wednesday’s game is likely to be similar as West Ham and Brighton draw with both teams finding the back of the net and more than 2.5 goals tallied.
