For our Brighton vs. West Ham prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
West Ham United are looking to pull further clear of the Premier League relegation zone as they travel to face Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.
Brighton currently sit 8th in the Premier League with ten wins, five draw and seven losses from twenty-two games this season.
The Seagulls have had a fine campaign this time around and are vying for a European pot under Roberto De Zerbi.
They enter this game amidst a solid run of form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches in all competitions.
Most recently, Brighton scored a place in the FA Cup quarter-final after beating Championship side Stoke City 1-0 away from home in mid-week courtesy of a goal from Evan Ferguson.
The win was a welcome one as Brighton are currently two games without a win in the Premier League and could do with getting back in the win column to regain some momentum before they play the games in hand they have over the sides above them.
De Zerbi will be delighted that 18-year-old Irish striker Ferguson pencilled his name on the scoresheet in midweek after going three games without a goal as his decisiveness inside the penalty area will be key to Brighton's chances this season.
Brighton's home form has been decent of late having won two of their last three games on home soil but having lost their most recent outing they'll be determined to make amends here.
If Brighton are going to claim a Europa League or a Europa Conference League spot then home games against the likes of West Ham are a must-win. They've been in better shape at points this season but there's plenty of reasons to believe they'll win here.
West Ham United currently sit 16th in the Premier League with six wins, five draws and thirteen losses from twenty-four games this season.
The Hammers have largely had a tough campaign this time around having failed to hit the heights of last season as they find themselves just two points clear of the relegation zone with twelve games of the season remaining.
Their form overall has been fairly poor of late having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches in all competitions, and while their most recent game saw them lose 3-1 at Old Trafford to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round their preceding game saw them claim a resounding 4-0 win at home to Nottingham Forest.
The win against Forest will be huge for their survival bid and they'll still be hoping they can build on it in the coming weeks.
West Ham are winless in their last ten Premier League games away from home and were comfortably beaten 0-2 by Brighton at the London Stadium back in August so this feels like a tough one for The Hammers. They're likely going to limp over the finish line this season to end a tough campaign but they may well fall to another defeat here.
