West Ham United have a rare Friday fixture, as they welcome their second promoted side to the London Stadium to take own Brighton and Hove Albion.

With Andy Carroll suspended following his two yellow cards last Saturday vs Burnley, along with James Collins and Driafra Sakho also unavailable, manager Slaven Bilic has chosen to start Arthur Masuaku and Pedro Obiang in their respective positions over Aaron Cresswell and Mark Noble.

For Brighton, manager Chris Hughton passes the late fitness test with his groin and is in the lineup. But unavailable to the Brighton manager are Sam Baldock, Beram Kayal and Tomer Hemed, the latter is serving the last match of his suspension.

It shall be an interesting contest at the London Stadium between these two sides. Enjoy this contest, and we shall see you at probably halftime.
