West Ham vs Brighton LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture today


West Ham United are taking on Brighton and Hove Albion this afternoon in the Premier League. The Hammers are without a win in their past two games and were disappointed to lose 3-0 at Chelsea last time out, but can get back into the winning swing of things with a victory here at the London Stadium against a Brighton side really struggling for points. 

Brighton are without a win in their last five league games, including that disappointing draw with bottom side Sheffield United, and there are some questions being asked of Graham Potter’s management which has seen the team create plenty without turning those attacking moments into enough goals. 

Follow all the latest updates from West Ham vs Brighton below, following the conclusion of Leeds vs Burnley.
