Brighton vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 22 May 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
The Hammers have made the final match of the season very interesting. They are placed 7th in the table as of now, which would enable them to take part in the second edition of the Europa Conference League – which will take place next season.
However, they are trailing just 2 points below the 6th placed Manchester United. And if the team manages to climb over the Red Devils, they can just represent England in the Europa League next time around.
Owing to the comfortable lead they hold over the 8th placed team, the Hammers have nothing to lose. Therefore, we can count on them too to completely go after the win this Sunday and if their recent performances are any indication, we can expect them to secure the win.
However, they will have to take care of the in-form Brighton in order to do that. This team is comfortably placed in the mid-table, and they are on a long unbeaten streak. They are scoring goals consistently and they are eager to prove themselves to the rest of the league as well.
By the looks of things, we can expect goals to come from either end of the pitch. But it needs to be mentioned that the Hammers still have the upper hand.
