West Ham travel south to face Brighton in the Premier League as they look to wrestle Europa League qualification from Man Utd on the final day of the season.

The Hammers must win at the Amex Stadium and hope Crystal Palace do them a favour in their clash with Ralf Rangnick's side at Selhurst Park if they are to secure Europa League football next term.

David Moyes' side let a two-goal lead slip at home to Man City last time out, although they may look back on Lukasz Fabianski's late penalty stop with fondness should results go their way this weekend.

Here's how the Hammers could line up at Brighton.

Lukasz Fabianski (GK) - His penalty stop from Riyad Mahrez last weekend has given West Ham hope of Europa League qualification heading into the final day.

Ben Johnson (RB) - Could replace Vladimir Coufal, who headed into his own net in last weekend's draw with Man City.

Craig Dawson (CB) - Enjoyed a terrific campaign, grabbing four goals from set piece scenarios.

Kurt Zouma (CB) - Been an integral part of a resolute West Ham defensive outfit this term.

Aaron Cresswell (LB) - Sent off twice in the Europa League knockout stages as West Ham fell in the last four to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Declan Rice (DM) - Has played the most minutes out of any Hammers player this season, which underlines his supreme fitness levels.

Tomas Soucek (DM) - Hasn't found the net with the same regularity as he last season, but he's still a hugely important player under Moyes.

Manuel Lanzini (AM) - A goal threat from his advanced midfield role, proving really dynamic in counter-attacking situations.

Jarrod Bowen (RW) - No Hammers player has scored or assisted more than the 25-year-old this season, who has racked up nearly 30 goal contributions.

Michail Antonio (ST) - His goal in West Ham's rout of Norwich recently was his first in the Premier League since New Year's Day,

Pablo Fornals (LW) - Quite a streaky creative player, often capable of the brilliant but equally as liable to drifting out of the game.
