themselves within the dropping zone if they lose on Saturday and results elsewhere go against them.

and will be within the bottom three by the top of the weekend.

The midfielder could make his debut against Brighton, who even have relegation concerns after a nasty run.
West Ham were taken down by the league-leaders earlier in the week after the latter scored two unanswered goals by the top of the ninety minutes.
