With Europa League qualification still in play, West Ham make the trip south to face Brighton on the final day of the Premier League season.

The Hammers are assured of a Europa Conference League spot next season, but victory at the Amex Stadium, coupled with a Crystal Palace win over Man Utd, would secure Europa League qualification for the second successive year.

Brighton, meanwhile, are eyeing a top-half finish in the table, while a point is likely to see them finish higher than Crystal Palace this season.

Brighton team news

Graham Potter has confirmed that Enock Mwepu will return to the squad but will definitely not start as he steps up his recovery from a groin injury.

There is, however, expected to be no sign of young Jeremy Sarmiento, whose season has been ended by a thigh problem.


West Ham team news

Said Benrahma missed last weekend's draw with Man City through an ankle injury, although Moyes is hopeful the Algerian will be available for the trip to the south coast.

The boss is less optimistic about Issa Diop, whose ankle he described as 'not quite right'.


Brighton vs West Ham score prediction

Although victory for West Ham - coupled with results elsewhere - could see them qualify for the Europa League for the second season running, it's hardly in Moyes' nature to set his side up to be gung-ho from the start.

Brighton are a savvy outfit under Potter and, as Man Utd fans can attest to, they are capable of cutting teams open at home if they're afforded space.

However, the Hammers' motivation levels will be higher and, with Jarrod Bowen in red hot goalscoring form, they should have too much for the Seagulls.

Prediction: Brighton 1-2 West Ham
