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.
Instead, last weekend’s win over Nottingham Forest clawed them out of the dropzone and, despite an FA Cup defeat in midweek, David Moyes’ side have lost only one of their last five in the Premier League.

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.
