Our football match prediction:
West Ham United play host to Brighton at their London Stadium on day 9 of the new Premier League campaign. The Hammers head into Friday’s football game following a 1-1 draw with Burnley and it has to be noted that experienced attacker Andy Carroll was sent off in the 27th minute of the match. The capital club aim to escape the danger zone in the Premier League standings and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Brighton when the two teams face each other in the capital of England. The Seagulls were on the verge of beating Everton at home in their last league match, but the Toffees eventually scored the equalizer in the dying minutes of the match. Brighton and West Ham are level on points ahead of Matchday 9 and we would not be surprised if they share the spoils in Friday’s game.
