BBC pundit says West Ham have turned a corner

MarkLawrenson1BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson believes West Ham have turned a corner and believes they will beat Brighton this evening at the London Stadium. Speaking to the BBC website Lawro said:

“I do feel like West Ham have turned the corner since the start of the season, even if Andy Carroll’s red card probably cost them victory at Burnley last week. Manuel Lanzini is fully fit, which makes a big difference, and I don’t worry about their form at London Stadium any more either.

Brighton also shot themselves in the foot last time out, because they had put in a decent performance before Bruno gave away a last-minute penalty that allowed Everton to equalise.

The Seagulls are still doing OK, though. I look at them and think they are going to be involved in the relegation battle, but they have enough about them to sneak out of it.

They are aiming for 17th place and they are not going to try to get it by playing open football.

I am expecting them to make things difficult for the Hammers on Friday night, but I still think Slaven Bilic’s side will find a way through. Lawro’s prediction: 2-0″
