Brighton & Hove Albion host West Ham United on Friday (Watch live, 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) as Chris Hughton‘s men aim to get back to winning ways against Manuel Pellegrini‘s in-form Hammers.
The Seagulls have just one win in their opening seven games of the season, but that was at home against Manchester United and they have turned the Amex into a fortress.
As for West Ham, they’ve beat Everton and Man United in recent weeks, with a draw against high-flying Chelsea sandwiched in-between. Not bad at all after a dodgy start to the season under their new manager.
In team news Brighton bring in Iranian forward Jahanbakhsh for his first PL start, while West Ham are unchanged.
