Brighton take on the visitors West Ham in the round 3 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 26th at Amex Stadium (Brighton).
Brighton, after a forced change of coach, achieved a long-standing goal. The Seagulls recently ascended to the Premier League. Despite constant sales of standout players, they progressed and eventually began to be considered contenders for European competitions. They managed to qualify for those competitions, but not under Potter's management; it happened after his unexpected move to Chelsea last autumn. It turned out that the arrival of De Zerbi became the impetus that helped them secure 6th place - earning them the opportunity to play in the Europa League this autumn. In the summer, they sold Mac Allister and Caicedo along with Robert Sanchez for a substantial amount of money (this duo followed a well-trodden path to the aristocrats), which didn't prevent them from starting with a 4-1 victory against Luton. And then, they repeated the same scoreline against Wolverhampton.

West Ham must show that their collaboration with Moyes is not exhausted. The Hammers found their own coach in David Moyes, in many ways accidentally (appointed as a firefighter after Pellegrini's failure). There was even an unexpected (albeit ultimately unsuccessful) battle for the 4th spot, a Champions League position. In the previous season, noticeably struggling in the Premier League where relegation was even a threat, the Hammers compensated for it by winning a trophy, an international one - the English team secured the Conference League. This also guaranteed them the opportunity to play in the Europa League, but it proved insufficient to retain Rice, the captain who ensured control in the midfield. After selling Declan and others, they tried to buy stars, but not all negotiations were successful. As a result, they started the new season with a draw against Bournemouth. However, they created a sensation against Chelsea, securing a 3-1 victory.
In the previous season, Albion was clearly stronger. They won both matches with a combined score of 6-0. The Seagulls are rightfully the favorites, but the opponent is challenging. Let's go with the option of total over 3.0 goals.
Prediction for the match: Over 3.0 scored goals.
