West Ham United will clash heads with Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium on Sunday as they hope to secure all three points on the road. The Hammers managed to pick up a hard-fought 2-2 draw versus Manchester City last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
David Moyes could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and will probably make one tweak to his starting XI for this game. Mark Noble could get a start in this league match while Tomas Soucek makes way for him and drops to the bench.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton
Łukasz Fabiański will feature in between the sticks for the Hammers after conceding a couple of goals in his last league outing. Craig Dawson will operate alongside Kurt Zouma at the heart of Moyes’ defence as they focus on restricting the Seagulls from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Vladimír Coufal was poor against Man City, so he will be eager to produce a much-improved performance at right-back. Aaron Cresswell will try to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Moyes will give both his full-backs a chance to get forward and express themselves in the opposition half.
Ryan Fredericks and Ben Johnson will make up the numbers on the bench as they offer cover for the full-back positions.
Declan Rice and Mark Noble will anchor the midfield for West Ham as they try to dominate the ball at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Pablo Fornals, Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen will feature just ahead of them as part of Moyes’ attack. Bowen scored a brace versus Man City which will give him a lot of confidence ahead of this weekend’s clash at the Amex.
Tomas Soucek will be available for selection on the Hammers bench.
Michail Antonio will spearhead West Ham’s attack up top. The English striker will be eager to end the season on a high by getting his name on the scoresheet this Sunday.
Andriy Yarmolenko will have to settle for a spot on the bench.
