José Izquierdo’s stunning strike lights up Brighton against weary West Ham

It had already been a bad week for West Ham, featuring yet another deflating conclusion to a transfer window and the dismissal of their head of player recruitment following his remarks about African footballers, and the atmosphere surrounding them had descended to new levels of toxicity once it was over.

Brighton & Hove Albion v West Ham United: match preview

Brighton have only claimed victory three times at home this season and their position is beginning to look complicated. The visit of West Ham, blighted by injury and off-field problems, looks like a good opportunity to end their six-match winless run. Record signing Jürgen Locadia is not ready for involvement just yet, although he has begun training, but Leonardo Ulloa should get some minutes on returning to his old home. Brighton are approaching the…

Mark Noble on spot to earn makeshift West Ham draw with Crystal Palace

Although it is impossible to argue with the assertion that West Ham United are crying out for reinforcements before the transfer window closes tonight, at least this gritty performance provided more evidence that David Moyes is capable of inspiring them to battle against adversity. A point was a decent reward bearing in mind that West Ham were deprived of almost an entire starting 11 and it was encouraging for Moyes to see his weary, battle-hardened …

A feeble West Ham performance saw David Moyes’s depleted side become Wigan Athletic’s latest Premier League victims, in a Cup tie overshadowed by the dismissal of Arthur Masuaku early in the second half for spitting. It will be a pity if the game is remembered only for that, or for a West Ham injury list running into double figures, for this was a lively Wigan performance that was perhaps even better than the one that dumped…
