Highlights from Brighton's 3-0 win over Watford in the Premier League. Charlie's prediction

What a result for Brighton at Watford last week. West Ham turned up scared against Manchester City and were punished. Declan Rice is not a superstar footballer. He is a very talented and progressive player who will get better, but West Ham are about creative ability and making chances, which Rice does not do. It will take Jack Wilshere time, too, but despite that I am going to go for an away win.
