Benrahma Rescues Point for Hammers at Brighton

Said Benrahma kept West Ham in the European hunt with a late equaliser to salvage a 1-1 draw with Brighton although their hopes of top-four finish took a severe dent.

In a game short on quality, West Ham looked to have been punished for a mostly lethargic display when Danny Welbeck danced through their defence with eight minutes to play before neatly finishing past Lukasz Fabianski.

However, Benrahma sprung from the bench to curl a fantastic leveller home as the clock ticked towards stoppage time on a night where Declan Rice played 90 minutes on his return from injury.

The Hammers’ hopes of finishing in the top four look slim with five points to Chelsea in fourth with just two games remaining, yet, a Europa League finish is within their sights in their remaining two games against West Brom and Southampton.
