Competition: Premier League
Market: West Ham wins
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
West Ham are desperate to return to midweek winning and welcome a struggling Brighton to London Stadium on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, and eventually hit with a 2-1 defeat away against defending Premier League champions Manchester City at the weekend, West Ham will seek a Premier League boost here. Although the Hammers may still open midweek matches in the top-four, David Moyes’ team comes on the back of back-to-back defeats in the top-flight. But as he stormed his way to the knockout phase of this year’s Europa League with time left over, the former Manchester United boss has seen his team only continue to win a ton of praise over the last 18 months. As West Ham smell a chance at home in the middle of the week, West Ham should be amplified by their success at London Stadium. In a race highlighted by the thrilling 3-2 win over Liverpool ahead of the international break, Wednesday’s hosts have won each of their last four moves at home.
In terms of visitors, while Brighton may have opened the 2021/22 campaign with a genuine purple patch, Graham Potter’s men have largely failed to build on the success of the early season. As the Amex crowd had to settle for a 0-0 draw against relegation players Leeds at home at the weekend, the Amex crowd made their dissatisfaction clear at the final whistle. After marking their return from November’s international break with a 2-0 away defeat to Aston Villa, the Seagulls are suddenly in the middle of an unbeaten run of nine matches across all formats. With their sluggish formality stretching all the way back to September 22, it should be noted that Brighton have failed to win any of their last five away games. Although they have an eye-catching record against the Hammers, we back up a home win here.
