Match Preview

It has been an excellent start to the new season for Brighton, as they have landed back-to-back wins and scored eight goals across their two matches in the top-flight. At present, they sit top of the standings, and they are one of just three teams in the Premier League to have won their opening two matches to start the season.

Brighton will be looking to make history this weekend, as they could win their opening three matches to start the new season for the first time since their Championship campaign in 2011-12. Meanwhile, they could become only the fourth side in top-flight history to win their opening three matches of the season scoring at least four in the process.

West Ham come into this match on the road unbeaten, as they landed a first win of the season in their second match of the campaign last weekend. It was an excellent team performance at the London Stadium, as they recorded a 3-1 win over Chelsea. This weekend, they will be looking to record back-to-back wins in the league for the first time since October.

However, their record against Brighton is very damning. They have never beaten the Seagulls in 12 attempts in the Premier League, losing on six occasions. In fact, their last win against Brighton was secured in the Championship in April 2012, as the Hammers landed a 6-0 home win.

Brighton vs West Ham Prediction

Brighton look set to be one of the stories in the Premier League once again this term. They have been excellent across their opening two matches, and all the trends point to them winning for the third successive match this Saturday.
