West Ham face a tough test away at Brighton today as their battle to avoid Premier League relegation continues.

The Seagulls, enjoying a fine season sat in eighth place with European football in their sights, are exactly where the Hammers hoped they would be at this stage of the season, though manager Roberto De Zerbi will be absent this afternoon after being hit with a one-match touchline ban.

Instead, last weekend’s thumping win over Nottingham Forest clawed tWest Ham out of the drop zone and, despite an FA Cup defeat by Manchester United in midweek, David Moyes’ side have lost only one of their last five in the top-flight.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Brighton vs West Ham is scheduled for a 3pm GMT kick-off time today on Saturday, March 4, 2023.

The match will take place at the Amex Stadium in Brighton.

The Hammers have a bit of a knack under Moyes, albeit a diminished one of late, of taking points off the high-flying sides and a trip to the Amex could be just one of those days.
