West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini and his coaching staff left no stone unturned in their preparations for Saturday's Premier League trip to Brighton & Hove Albion at Rush Green this week.

The Hammers head for the Amex seeking their first top-flight points of the season, having been beaten at home by Manchester City in their opening fixture.

Pellegrini may choose to make changes to his team on the south coast, with the likes of Pablo Fornals, Andriy Yarmolenko and Ben Johnson all eager to earn starts, and new boys Albian Ajeti and Gonçalo Cardoso keen to be involved in a matchday squad for the first time.
