After starting with three successive away defeats this season, West Ham have steadied the ship at home, winning two of their three games at the London Stadium so far.

Tomorrow night, the Hammers welcome Brighton to East London with the Seagulls sitting one place above the Hammers on goal difference.

West Ham go into this game after dropping points away at Burnley last time out and know that they really should be seeing off Brighton with consummate ease.

They’ll have to do so without Andy Carroll who was sent off at Turf Moor and consequently fined by West Ham for his reckless actions.

Fellow striker Diafra Sakho has also been ruled out by Bilic leaving Javier Hernandez as the sole recognised first-team striker available for this game and the Mexican himself is struggling with a hamstring injury.

Bilic resisted the temptation to call up in-form U23s striker Toni Martinez to fill the temporary void meaning either Michail Antonio or Andre Ayew could play as a secondary striker alongside Hernandez, while James Collins remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Here’s a final look at our predicted XI ahead of tomorrow’s game.
