The Hammers will take a trip to the American Express Community Stadium on May 22, where they’ll meet Brighton for their last game of the Premier League season. This match is definitely more important for West Ham as winning it means they can still reach a spot in the Europa League group stage, whereas losing will lock them in 7th-place.
Meanwhile, Brighton is sitting comfortably right in the middle of the standings next to Leicester and winning this wouldn’t even secure them a spot higher in the standings.
It’s our typical scenario of which team might need more this win, and West Ham leads this case. Most recently, they were able to score a draw against the current Premier League’s 1st place Man City, and considering that they haven’t secured the championship, it’s safe to say that they were trying their hardest against the Hammers.
Moyes’s men started strong against Man City and secured a 2-goal lead before the break, but unfortunately for them, they weren’t able to maintain their lead and after struggling for the rest of the game, they ended up giving away 2 goals.
Graham Potter’s side might feel a bit intimidated coming into this match just by taking a look at the Hammer’s performance in their last game, and what makes it worse is that Brighton recently scored a draw too, but there’s a small difference, Brighton’s opponent was Premier League’s 17th-place team Leeds.
But as mentioned before, this match really isn’t of much importance to Potter and his men, although we all know that teams feel good when they are able to close out the season with a victory in their books.
The last time these two teams faced-up was back in December and for nobody’s surprise, it ended up in a 1-1 draw. If West Ham wants a chance to reach 6th place, then they’ll have to do whatever it takes to not get the same result they did last time.
