Brighton vs West Ham PREVIEW & PREDICTION 17/08/2019

On Saturday, from 15:00 pm, Florin Andone is announced the reserve in Brighton, in the match on his own field with West Ham United, in the second stage of the first English league. The Romanian scored in the opening round, with Watford (3-0), but is not seen as a starter in the Graham Potter lineup.

For Andone, the fight for title is very difficult. The Romanian striker has to fold on a system with a single point of attack, as his competitors in the position are goalkeepers like Glenn Murray, Neal Maupay or Jurgen Locadia. The “Fishermen” form a well-disciplined team that knows how to crowd their own, which will make West Ham United big trouble. Londoners are far from brilliant in recent years and started the season with a expected failure, score 0-5 with Manchester City.

The tension is likely to affect Pellegrini’s players, who have easily scored goals this summer. Interestingly, four of the last five straight duels had at least three goals scored, which encourages betting on goals and this time! Last season, Brighton won 1-0 at home and drew 2-2 in London, thus managing to escape the unbeaten duel with West Ham, a huge blazer.

Without Bissouma, Izquierdo and Schelotto, injured, the blue-and-blue will try a new energy and tactically efficient performance, especially since the “fishermen” are unbeaten in the last four straight duels, achieving three victories. Last season, West Ham finished only 7 games without a goal, and the London defense has not made much progress since then. We expect the host band to take the lead in this balanced announcement.


Brighton: M. Ryan – Duffy, Dunk, Burn – Montoya, Propper, Stephens, S. March – Gross, Murray, Locadia

West Ham: Fabianski – Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Cresswell – Wilshere, Rice – F. Anderson, Lanzini, M. Antonio, Haller

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1,72
