Making a rash decision to change your manager after a losing start to the season in the Premier League does not always have the desired affect and the appointment of David Moyes at West Ham could prove to be another example of this. The Hammers players failed to respond to the change in leadership losing 2-0 at Watford and Moyes commented post-match that the task in hand is bigger than he first thought after working with the players closely in training and seeing them play for him proper for the first time.
Tonight’s Premier League action is between Brighton and Stoke at the Amex Stadium and this encounter has all the hall marks of a low scoring affair given both teams respective league home and away goal scoring averages per game this season. The draw is tempting from a betting perspective, but Stoke have only drawn one of the last ten away in all competitions so that’s enough to put me off advising that outcome. I think Brighton are playing well enough to win this and If you are looking for better odds either backing Brighton and Under 2.5 Goals in the match or Draw HT/Brighton FT are both worth considering as the stats suggest a low scoring affair with less than 3 goals in the match and the match to be drawn at half time, most probably 0-0, as three of Brighton’s five home games this season ended with that result.
