West Ham will be looking to get back to winning ways at the London Stadium when they come up against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday night.
The Hammers were excellent in December and picked up 15 points in the Premier League. However, they have suffered with inconsistency in their recent outings.
Manuel Pellegrini has seen his side lose out in two of their last three games, with the most recent loss coming on Sunday at Burnley.
Brighton, meanwhile, will head into their away clash against the Hammers in confident mood. Chris Hughton’s side picked up three points in their home win against Everton.
West Ham are strong favourites for this fixture but have been struck by numerous injury blows throughout the first half of the season.
They will, however, be boosted by the signing of Samir Nasri on a free transfer.
Here’s how we think Pellegrini will set his side out against the Seagulls.
As always, Fabianski will start between the sticks.
Ryan Fredericks is still out, so Zabaleta is a straightforward pick at right-back.
With Fabian Balbuena still nursing an injury, Ogbonna is likely to retain his place.
Diop will retain his place alongside Ogbonna in central defence.
At left-back, it is likely that Cresswell will start for the Hammers.
Rice has been impressive lately and will start in holding midfield.
Alongside the youngster, Noble is set to start once again.
Snodgrass is set to operate on the right-hand side.
In a free role, Anderson will be hoping to have greater influence on this match than he did at Burnley.
Pellegrini will be tempted to throw Nasri straight in, but it is likely that Perez will be handed a final chance to shine.
Arnautovic will be hungry to get back among the goals and will see this clash as a good opportunity to return to form.
