West Ham XI vs Brighton: Predicted starting lineup, team news, and injury updates for today’s Premier League game

Mavropanos, who was acquired from Stuttgart in a transfer valued at approximately £20 million, will not be participating due to a minor injury, despite his recent move from Arsenal. Meanwhile, Thilo Kehrer has recuperated from a back issue that sidelined him during the victory over Chelsea, making him available for selection under David Moyes. This comes at an opportune moment as Nayef Aguerd is suspended following his two yellow cards in the London derby.

Edson Alvarez might receive his inaugural starting opportunity after his substitute appearance against Chelsea, and James Ward-Prowse, another summer signing, is expected to maintain his spot in the starting lineup. Michail Antonio, who made an impressive impact in the previous match by scoring a remarkable goal to restore West Ham’s lead, is likely to retain his position ahead of Danny Ings.

The anticipated West Ham starting lineup is as follows: Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Kehrer, Emerson; Soucek, Ward-Prowse; Bowen, Paqueta, Benrahma; Antonio. Notably, Mavropanos is unavailable due to injury, while there are no significant doubts regarding the lineup. Nayef Aguerd’s absence due to suspension is confirmed.

The scheduled match will take place at the Amex Stadium on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at 3pm BST.
