There’s plenty at stake in the Brighton vs West Ham live stream. While the Seagulls are looking to surpass their best-ever Premier League points total, the Hammer could still qualify for the Europa League if they win — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab).

Brighton vs West Ham live stream date, time, channels

The Brighton vs West Ham live stream takes place today (Sunday, May 22).
Time 4 p.m. BST / 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT
• U.S. — Watch on Peacock (opens in new tab) (requires Premium or Premium Plus subscription)
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free (opens in new tab)

Ahead of the final matchday, Brighton sit in 10th position with a points haul of 48, which equals the side's highest ever Premier League finish. Even a draw here would see the side set a new points record, and potentially move them further up the table. That should be motivation enough for Graham Potter’s men to give this game everything they’ve got.  

Meanwhile, West Ham have stumbled in recent weeks but still have a chance of securing qualification for next season’s Europa League if they can better Manchester United’s result in the Crystal Palace vs Manchester United game. Otherwise, they will play in the Europa Conference League next season, which will feel like a huge disappointment for a side that at one stage was challenging for a Champions League spot. 

This may not be the most exciting fixture of the final Premier League matchday, but both sides have something to play for here, so don’t expect a subdued affair. Here's how they line up:

Brighton: Sanchez, Cucurella, Webster, Dunk, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Gross, Welbeck, March, Caicedo, Veltman.

West Ham: Fabianski, Coufal, Zouma, Dawson, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Fornals, Lanzini, Bowen, Antonio.

Can Brighton finish a very solid season with a win? Or will West Ham claw their way into the Europa League qualification spots? Find out by watching the Brighton vs West Ham live stream, and we will show you how to do that below.
