West Ham v Brighton - Early Hammers Team News

On Friday evening, West Ham United welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to the London Stadium for a Premier League fixture.

Today, Slaven Bilic held his pre-match press conference and gave an insight into the current injury situation at the club, remarking to those in attendance,

'We have a couple that are out because of injury. James Collins is out for a matter of days and Sakho has back pain. He didn`t train since Burnley so he`s out of Friday`s game. They could both be back for the Spurs game.

"Chicharito had a slight problem but he`s training at 4pm and he should be good to train with us. It`s not a big thing. He trained and felt a little bit of a tight hamstring, so we scanned it which was important, and the scan was completely clear. He missed Wednesday`s light session and we expect him to train today and, based on his feeling, to be OK.

"Adrian had a stomach problem for a couple of days, but he is OK now and should train with us."

Concluding, I`d say that only James Collins and Diafra Sakho are out with injuries, plus Andy Carroll courtesy of the suspension picked up for his offences committed against Burnley last weekend.
