West Ham’s injury-blighted squad battled hard on Tuesday to secure a point against an in-form Crystal Palace side but the Hammers still remain in the thick of that tight bottom half in the Premier League.
David Moyes was only able to add one new player to his squad between the Palace game and the transfer deadline, that being the £9m acquisition of Jordan Hugill from Preston and the 25-year-old striker will go straight into the matchday squad for this weekend’s trip to Brighton.
The Hammers were humbled by the Premier League rookies earlier in the season when they came to the London Stadium and put three past Joe Hart as they cruised to victory.
Our injury-hit squad is slowly getting back to full strength and both Jose Fonte and Michail Antonio will be in contention to start following lengthy absences. Here is our predicted XI for the trip to Brighton tomorrow afternoon.
