After four losses from their first four Premier League games, West Ham United seem to have turned their season around, taking seven points from the last nine available.
Their 3-1 win over Manchester United last Saturday was particularly impressive, despite United’s ongoing turmoil.
And on Friday night the Hammers travel to Brighton and Hove Albion where they will be looking to continue their remarkable reversal of fortunes. The Seagulls have won just once and sit two points behind their visitors in the league table.
