Brighton & Hove Albion hosts West Ham United
Brighton & Hove Albion hosts West Ham United in a game from the second round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the The American Express in our vip soccer bets.
Brighton & Hove Albion couldn’t have hoped for a better start of the campaign. Graham Potter’s team visited Watford in the first round and achieved a stunning 3-0 win at the Vicarage Road. Most of the pundits thought that the hosts are favourites, but Javi Gracia’s boys were fully dominated.
Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure had the bad luck to score himself an own goal, while Florin Andone and Neal Maupay finished Watford with goals after the halftime break.
Surely if Brighton & Hove keep this level of performance during the season, they won’t have to worry about relegation. But this is the big question – can they actually keep this level?
West Ham United on the other hand had to suffer a true nightmare in the first round. The Hammers hosted the champion Manchester City at the London Stadium, conceding a heavy 0-5 loss against the Cityzens.
Nothing which Manuel Pellegrini’s boys tried against City actually worked. Raheem Sterling showed amazing form and scored three goals for the champions, while Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero from a penalty kick also scored for Guardiola’s team.
Of course, we shall not be too judgmental on West Ham, because losing against this Manchester City side is nothing to be ashamed of. The champions have a terrific squad, so they were big favourites before the game. On Saturday the Hammers will have the chance to leave a different impression.
These are our vip soccer bets for the Premier League clash between Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United on Saturday. These two teams started the new campaign in a totally different way, but let’s see if something will change for them.
