West Ham United welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to the London Stadium on Tuesday night in the quest to begin the new year with a victory.
The Hammers edged past Arsenal in a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday, while the Seagulls put four past Tottenham Hotspur last time out.
The reverse fixture in August saw West Ham emerge victorious over Brighton in a 3-1 win, and the Irons will hope to replicate that success once again.
However, the Seagulls look the better side ahead of the clash with three wins in their last five matches against the Hammers, drawing and losing one game apiece in the period.
Only three points separate both sides on the league standings, yet David Moyes’ men look the better side ahead of the match with four wins and a draw in their last five league matches, suffering only one defeat in the period.
The hosts will be without Lucas Paqueta, who is sidelined with a knee injury, and Mohammed Kudus and Nayef Asguerd are unlikely to feature in this clash due to their participation in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
Brighton however will be without Lewis Dunk for this game after he picked up his fifth booking of the season.
The match comes off at 7:30 pm.
