After such a spectacular start to the season, the Hammers’ momentum has been halted by back-to-back defeats against Wolves and Manchester City. However, they still remain in the top four, ahead of Arsenal on goal difference.
Brighton’s form has taken a far more dramatic dip in recent weeks, though, having now failed to win a top-flight match since 19 September.
After a frustrating draw against Leeds last time out, a flustered Graham Potter hit back at the club’s discontented supporters. “Maybe I need a history lesson,” he said. “I need to understand were we are at because as far as I can see we are eighth in the Premier League and the boys are giving everything. We’ll carry on.”
