West Ham’s miserable start to the season continued on Sunday as Brighton made easy work off the Hammers at the London Stadium.
It’s zero wins, zero points and zero goals for the Hammers after three games, and they never truly looked like ending that run in front of their own fans on Sunday.
Alexis Mac Allister’s 22nd-minute penalty following a foul by debutant Thilo Kehrer on Danny Welbeck put Brighton ahead.
Graham Potter’s well-drilled side sealed a thoroughly deserved three points in the 66th minute when Leandro Trossard raced through to score after a slick move.
West Ham did not manage a shot on target in the first half but tried to respond late on with Tomas Soucek forcing a couple of fine saves from Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez.
West Ham, who are still without a point or a goal, and sit bottom of the table after three games, were booed off at the final whistle.
Brighton have seven points from three matches. Thilo Kehrer’s Premier League career started inauspiciously when he brought down Danny Welbeck to concede a penalty.
