Brighton 3 – West Ham 1
What a disastrous day for West Ham!
Following a terrible January window and a slew of injuries.
Hammers supporters must be getting really worried right now and with good reason.
Brighton have scored just 21 goals this whole season. Six of them have come from matches against West Ham.
Brighton have scored 6 goals vs West Ham this season!
After winning 3-0 at the London Stadium, Brighton made it two wins from two against the Hammers this season at the AMEX on Saturday.
Glenn Murray continued his fine scoring run with the opener. Javier Hernandez equalised on 30 minutes. Joao Mario bagging an assist.
In the second half, West Ham were a shambles, Jose Izquierdo scored a worldie. And, Pascal Gross confirmed the win with 15 minutes remaining.
David Moyes has a good laugh at West Ham
West Ham are now deep in the relegation mire without two of their best players due to injury, in Manuel Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic.
The Hammers may be in 12th but they are only three points off the relegation zone. So, David Moyes’ reaction in the post match press conference after Brighton might come as some surprise.
At the very end of the video below, Moyes is asked if the problems are coming “from all angles right now.”
Moyes replies: “Maybe that’s West Ham!”
When it is put to the West Ham boss that “it’s like Eastenders”, Moyes laughs and agrees.
Moyes adds: “I think in management no day is ever dull. And, you just never know, the job brings some strange things. There have been some difficult situations.”
West Ham’s next match is absolutely enormous, at home to Watford next Saturday.
