Manuel Pellegrini is aiming to become the first West Ham manager in two seasons to try and do what two others have failed - beat Brighton & Hove Albion.

Masuaku wasn't in the matchday squad for the City game, nor was Andriy Yarmolenko.



The other potential change the manager could make is likely to be at left back, with fans clamouring for Arthur Masuaku to be given the nod over Aaron Cresswell.



Pellegrini sprung a surprise in that Man City defeat by starting with Michail Antonio on the right hand side of midfield as £25m summer recruit Pablo Fornals had to settle for a spot on the bench.

We believe that Pellegrini will go as attacking as he possibly can, meaning a recall for Fornals and with the injury doubt over Felipe Anderson and what with it being a long season, the Brazilian may not be risked.

There are two alternatives Javier Hernandez and new recruit Albian Ajeti but it's unlikely the latter will be thrown for his debut from the start so Chicharito gets the nod from us Othwerise, the team should remain unchanged from the one that was beaten by City with no other injury concerns around the team.

Jack Wilshere is fine after suffering a dead leg against City that forced him off the field.
