Half-time at the London Stadium…

West Ham United 0-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

Neal Maupay’s goal late in the half has handed Brighton the lead in what has otherwise been an insipide opening 45 minutes.

Brighton have created the greater number of opportunities with Solly March, Danny Welbeck and Maupay all causing a problem. The Hammers have offered very little with Jarrod Bowen looking the most likely with a typically busy performance.

All in all, pretty poor stuff, particularly from the home side. Surely, this must improve after the break?
