Albion play West Ham United at the Amex Stadium this weekend.

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome West Ham United to the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 3pm.

The Seagulls head into the match after drawing 1-1 against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday evening, which came after a 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough in the Emirates FA Cup.

Chris Hughton’s team currently occupy 15th position in the Premier League - but sit just one point above the relegation zone, as the league table continues to tighten - with just five points separating tenth to 19th.

The Hammers also drew 1-1 last time out, as they shared the spoils with Crystal Palace at the London Stadium, following a shock FA Cup defeat to Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium last weekend.


Jurgen Locadia began training with the squad on Thursday, and while Saturday's game will come too soon for the striker, Chris Hughton hopes to have him available for the trip to Stoke City on Saturday week.

Jiri Skalak (ankle) and Steve Sidwell (back and ankle) remain the only other absentees, and the Seagulls boss has a largely full-strength squad to choose from.

David Moyes has a number of injuries to his squad - with key players Manuel Lanzini (thigh), Winston Reid (groin), Michail Antonio (calf), Marko Arnautovic (thigh) and Andy Carroll (foot) all doubtful for the game.

Andrew Ayew (hamstring), Edmilson Fernandes (ankle), Arthur Masuaku (suspension) and Pedro Obiang (knee) also missed the midweek clash against the Eagles.


The Seagulls secured their first Premier League away victory when they visited the London Stadium in October - with Glenn Murray’s brace and Jose Izquierdo’s stunner sealing the points.

It was Albion’s first visit to West Ham’s new home, and it proved a memorable night for the Seagulls’ fans in London that evening - as they performed excellently in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Murray headed home from a Pascal Gross free-kick to put Albion in front, before Izquierdo curled a brilliant effort beyond Joe Hart from outside the penalty area.

Albion’s number 17 concluded a fine evening for Hughton’s men in the second half, firing home from the penalty spot after Pablo Zabaleta was penalised for a foul on the striker inside the 18-yard box.


ALBION: The spoils were shared when Hughton’s team travelled to St Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday evening, as Jack Stephens cancelled out Murray’s penalty which gave the Seagulls a 1-0 lead early on.

It was Murray again who found the back of the net in Albion’s late 1-0 victory over Boro on Teesside - fortuitously seeing the ball bounce back off his knee from George Friend’s attempted clearance.

Albion were beaten 4-0 by Chelsea at the Amex beforehand, which followed on from a disappointing 2-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

WEST HAM UNITED: The London club are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games, most recently sharing a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on home soil.

Mark Noble’s penalty restored parity to the scoreline after Christian Benteke headed the Eagles into a 1-0 lead at the London Stadium.

West Ham’s FA Cup run came to an end against Wigan Athletic, but an impressive 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium was followed up by another 1-1 draw against AFC Bournemouth.

Albion line-up: Ryan; Schelotto, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; March, Stephens, Propper, Izquierdo; Gross (Kayal 82); Murray (Ulloa 76).

Subs not used: Hart, Fonte, Cullen, Quina, Haksabanovic, Martinez.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Cheikhou Kouyate

The midfielder signed for the Hammers from Anderlecht in 2014 and has been an ever present for the Londoners since making the switch - making over 30 Premier League appearances in every season since being at the club.

Kouyate has already racked up 20 league matches for the Hammers this season, scoring goals against Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City at the London Stadium.

The energetic central midfielder pulls the strings in the middle of the park for David Moyes’ team, and will be an important player for the Hammers as they look to avoid relegation from England’s top flight.

In total, the Senegal international, who plays as more of a defensive midfielder, has scored 15 goals in 139 appearances since moving to England, also chipping in with nine assists.

Glenn Murray gives Albion the lead against West Ham United.
  • Glenn Murray gives Seagulls early lead
  • Jose Izquierdo scores second-half stunner to make it 2-1
  • Pascal Gross nets a third as Albion do double over Hammers
  • Albion secure first Premier League win of 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion recorded a fantastic 3-1 win against West Ham United at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Glenn Murray had handed the Albion an eighth-minute lead in the first half, but his well-taken effort was cancelled out by Javier Hernandez on the half hour mark. 

Jose Izquierdo put the Seagulls back in front just before the hour mark with an outstanding curling finish into the top corner, before Pascal Gross’s stylish effort gave the Seagulls a two-goal advantage and all three points.

Chris Hughton made one change to the side that drew 1-1 with Southampton at St Mary’s on Wednesday evening with Anthony Knockaert replacing Solly March on Albion’s right.

David Moyes named an unchanged side for the visitors who drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace on Tuesday but there was a space on the Hammers’ bench for deadline day arrival Jordan Hugill

The Seagulls began on the front foot and took the lead after eight minutes. 

A quick counter attack saw Knockaert find  Gross in the centre – and the German’s intelligent through ball found Murray and the forward advanced towards goal and calmly slotted under Adrian as an excellent advantage was played after Knockaert was brought down byAaron Cresswell, who was booked, in the build-up.

Knockaert then fired over when off balance as Albion remained camped in the West Ham half, before Murray saw a shot from the edge of the area blocked after a neat exchange between Gross, Izquierdo and the striker.

Sam Byram’s header was scrambled away by the Seagulls after a dangerous cross by Cresswell, but the visitors drew level on the half hour.

Mark Noble’s driven pass was firmly into the feet of Javier Hernandez, who weaved his way past home defenders before firing into the top corner.

Cresswell provided another dangerous delivery five minutes before the interval, but Joao Mario’s extended leg couldn’t make contact with the cross, before Byram’s header at the far post went well over the bar.

Lewis Dunk picked up Albion’s first yellow card of the game shortly after the restart for a late challenge on Hernandez and Murray’s cutback couldn’t find a Seagulls shirt as the half began in an equally competitive nature. 

But the Seagulls were soon back in front just before the hour mark – and in some style. 

There didn’t appear to be much danger on when Izquierdo picked up possession on the edge of the area after a corner by Gross had sailed to the back post, but the Colombian winger took aim superbly and curled a delightful finish into the top corner to put the hosts back ahead.

Michael Antonio then came on in place of Declan Rice as the visitors made their first change of the afternoon, and Gross headed over after a marauding run and cross from Schelotto. 

Murray was withdrawn for Leonardo Ulloa with just under 20 minutes left, as the Argentine striker received a standing ovation as he entered the field on his return to the Amex Stadium. 

A wonderfully worked move between Ulloa, Izquierdo and Gross ended in the latter’s shot deflecting narrowly wide for a corner, before the German fired Albion into a two-goal lead soon after.

Davy Propper’s well-weighted pass was slick and into the feet of the midfielder, and Gross turned stylishly before firing an unstoppable shot past Adrian and into the far corner to give the hosts a more comfortable advantage.

Knockaert was replaced by Solly March in Albion’s second change, and the midfielder was straight into the action as he found Gross in-behind – but his shot was tipped away by Adrian.

West Ham’s deadline day arrival  Hugill then came on in place of Byram for the visitors’ second change, before Beram Kayal replaced Gross with seven minutes left to play. 

There was still time for both Ulloa and March to go close as the latter fired agonisingly over from close range but that was the last action of the afternoon as the home side saw out the remainder of the contest to secure a vital three points and their first Premier League win of 2018.
