Glenn Murray scored his fifth goal of the season to give Brighton victory over West Ham in an entertaining Premier League match at the Amex Murray stroked home Kayal’s excellent cross from the left on 25 minutes for the only goal of the game.
The Hammers responded positively, with Marko Arnautovic threatening to equalise before half-time.
The visitors continued to press in the second half, but Brighton held on to claim all three points.
The hosts had opportunities to extend their lead, though, and Murray twice headed over the crossbar.
But his first-half goal was ultimately enough for the Seagulls to secure only their second win of the season.
