Brighton and Hove Albion stun West Ham United 3-0

Double Hammer blow avoided by hosts for Brighton and Hove Albion's visit

Slaven Bilic sees red at claims West Ham lack discipline

Tottenham face West Ham next week.

Jose Izquierdo got the visitors' other goal as the promoted Seagulls jumped up to 10th.

West Ham briefly threatened to make a game of it but Brighton showed the hosts how to defend.

Spurs have already beaten West Ham once this season, winning 3-2 at the London Stadium, and are hoping to inflict further damage on Wednesday night. He promptly made it seven in the 10th minute when he floated a free-kick towards the head of Murray.

"They threw a lot at us - a lot of crosses and blocked shots".

Brighton, sensationally, doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time.

Brighton were then awarded a penalty in the 74th minute when Murray was brought down by Pablo Zabaleta. "I think we deserved it".

In Chris Hughton's 100th game as a Premier League manager, the Seagulls sensed nervousness in West Ham's play and struck an unlikely opener.

Hammers joint-owner David Sullivan had backed his manager before kick-off, saying he would be given the opportunity to at least see out his contract until the end of the season, but the Croatian's future now seems less secure. "All I can say is that it was very disappointing and frustrating and as manager I take full responsibility for that", he told the club's website (www.whufc.com).

The 37-year-old Bruno said: "To play away from home always is tough in Premier League, to get three points is so important for us".

Jokanovic was heavily linked with a move to The London Stadium just a couple of months ago with the West Ham United board thought to have been preparing to replace Bilic as reported by The Express.

"I don't want to hide".
