Out of form Brighton travel to West Ham's London Stadium on Wednesday evening winless in two months.
Alongside a tumbling Everton and rock-bottom Newcastle, Graham Potter's Seagulls are one of three Premier League sides that failed to pick up a victory across October and November.
Here's the starting XI that Brighton could field to start December with a winning sensation that has deserted them for nine games.
Brighton predicted lineup vs West Ham - Premier League
1. Goalkeeper & defenders
Robert Sanchez (GK) - Despite saving three-quarters of the attempts that have flown his way (fourth-best in the division), the freshly minted Spain international has only kept one clean sheet all season.
Joel Veltman (RB) - Less than £1m for a versatile, former Champions League semi-finalist the right side of 30 remains one of the savviest examples of Brighton's impressive recruitment record.
Adam Webster (CB) - The Seagulls won three of their first four matches of the season with Webster firmly ensconced in defence before injury forced him onto the sidelines. After one win in nine subsequent league games his return will be warmly welcomed.
Lewis Dunk (CB) - The ever-present epicentre of Brighton's backline used to wear the armband for the youth team of the club he captains to this day.
Marc Cucurella (LB) - Hasn't been left out of the starting XI since officially joining the club on transfer deadline day.
Adam Lallana (CM) - A fixture of this season's starting XI since his half-time introduction coincided with an opening day turnaround at Burnley, Lallana missed out on the stalemate against Leeds last weekend that was met with boos from the home crowd.
Yves Bissouma (CM) - Despite missing a quarter of the current campaign with injury, Brighton's Mali international has made more tackles than any other teammate this season.
Pascal Gross (AM) - Brighton's most prolific chance creator this term was supposedly plucked out of the obscurity of relegated Ingolstadt by virtue of that very quality in 2017.
Tariq Lamptey (RW) - Shifted into an unfamiliar advanced position at home to Leeds, if Lamptey continues to get into such threatening locations he may well deliver some much-needed end product for a side that has scored two goals from open play in their last seven matches.
Neal Maupay (ST) - After four goals from his first 11 shots of the season, Brighton's top scorer hasn't scored with any of his subsequent ten attempts.
Leandro Trossard (LW) - Only Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes has taken or created a larger share of his team's shots than Brighton's attacking hub (37%).
