West Ham suffered a third consecutive defeat on Wednesday night, losing 2-0 to league leaders Liverpool at the London Stadium. The Hammers have now failed to win any of their last five matches in all competitions.

Brighton have the second-worst away record in the division, with two wins and two draws on the road.

West Ham have never beaten Brighton in the Premier League in five previous attempts. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Amex in the reverse fixture in August. The now-departed Chichartio opened the scoring for West Ham, moments before Leandro Trossard scored Brighton’s equaliser.
