West Ham vs Brighton Match Preview and Team News
Wins over Manchester United and Arsenal will have backed up David Moyes’ decision to make a few changes to his starting eleven in the League Cup Quarter Final defeat at Liverpool. Those Premier League wins have pushed West Ham United up the League table and another year finishing up with European Football has to be the aim in the second half of the campaign. The Hammers are up to 6th in the Premier League table and are just 4 points behind Manchester City inside the top four. Lucas Paqueta plays great and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Manchester City is interested in the Brazilian international and has offered 80 million to the Hammers. Pablo Fornals is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for West Ham United coach David Moyes to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group. Michail Antonio (Knee injury) is sidelined.
Roberto De Zerbi described the win over Tottenham Hotspur as Brighton’s finest performance of the season. The Seagulls have managed to move above Newcastle United into 8th place in the Premier League table, but more consistency will be needed if Brighton are to achieve all their targets. They took a 3-2-4 record away to the London Stadium on Tuesday in the first match Brighton will face in 2024. Pascal Gross plays well in the middle of the park and does not allow the opponent much action. Danny Welbeck is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, he controls the ball very well, and the England international can be satisfied with his performance. Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Joël Veltman (Knee injury), Julio Enciso (Meniscus tear), Kaoru Mitoma (Ankle injury), Solly March (Knee injury), Simon Adingra (Hamstring injury), Tariq Lamptey (unknown injury), Adam Webster (unknown injury) and Ansu Fati (Calf injury) won’t be making appearances. Lewis Dunk is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
