Brighton are hoping to have Pascal Gross and Dale Stephens fit to face West Ham on Friday night at the AMEX Stadium.

West Ham go into the game on the back of a great win over Manchester United but they’ll know that it won’t be an easy game against Brighton on Friday evening.

Gross has been out since early September with an ankle injury that he picked up during the 2-2 draw with Fulham, whilst Stephens has been absent for a couple of weeks after limping out of the home defeat to Tottenham.

However, Chris Hughton hopes to have the duo back in action when the Hammers come to town.

West Ham’s midfielders were excellent against Man United at the weekend and Brighton will be keen to have their full strength side out to help combat the likes of Mark Noble and Issa Diop.
