The series of beautiful days in London gradually fell behind when West Ham lost the last 2 rounds against Wolves and Man City. As a result, the 4th position that "Sledgehammer" owns became violently shaken because Arsenal standing right behind was only poor in sub-par difference.
This round, teachers and students of Moyes played at home and welcomed an unpleasant opponent Brighton. Although "seagulls" have not won the last 9 consecutive matches in all competitions, they have only lost 2 and in the last series of matches, Brighton drew both Arsenal and Liverpool.
On the current table, Brighton is still safe in the top half of the table, creating an 8 point difference compared to the group holding the red light. Therefore, Brighton is in a comfortable state of mind and is not under too much pressure in terms of results.
But with the advantage of home field and stronger strength, West Ham must be on the top door. Only the -1/2 handicap is creating doubt. Coach David Moyes and his students did not have a predestined relationship with this handicap because the last two matches had similar handicaps, West Ham both brought disappointment to Asian fans.
In addition, the confrontation history also shows that West Ham are somewhat inferior to Brighton when the last 5 clashes between the two sides have ended with a draw (West Ham is in the door over 4 matches). Beyond 8 encounters, The Hammers cannot beat Brighton.
