Graham Potter’s men once again squandered a series of delicious opportunities to score and looked set to be defeated after Tomas Soucek’s early header.

But just before injury time, Maupay bounced back to land a beautiful overhead kick into the top corner for a slice of the spoils.

Soucek has not been able to score since the first game of the season – forcing Moyes to defend his midfielder during the game’s preparations.

But it took the Czechs just five minutes to find their trump card when Pablo Fornals fired a dangerous shot in the left corner and Soucek went up to head Robert Sanchez into the net in Brighton.

Going behind was doubly disappointing for the Seagulls as they would have actually taken the lead after just two minutes when Maupay fired a long shot from twelve yards.

Graham Potter’s side did indeed play better football for much of the opening season, but it was the Hammers who were the closest lead to score next.

Michail Antonio shot from afar to hit the Fornals net, but the Spaniard’s volley in the 28th minute went wide of the post.

Even losing Jeremy Sarmiento and Adam Webster to injury in the first half-hour couldn’t stop Brighton from attacking at every opportunity – but once again they were caught in front of goal.

Subtle approach play was played at Jakub Moder with only Lukasz Fabianski to beat, but Pole saw his shot deflected by his compatriot’s bottom lane.

And from the corner, Lewis Dunk climbed up for a free header, only to once again send the ball wide of the post.

It’s a far cry from the fluid stuff from Hammers, where one after another the moves are broken due to poor control or the wrong pass.

But they thought they had doubled their lead in the second minute in the third when Antonio hit his foot in the net from close range after Sanchez made a mess trying to punch the ball from a corner. .

It was the scariest goal to see the ball fired from Craig Dawson and Brighton defender Shane Duffy, but after three decisive minutes, VAR deemed Antonio offside because he had a touch on the ball. the faintest.

Bowen then narrowly missed the post as West Ham broke off a counter-attack, before a poorer finish cost the visitors.

Adam Lallana scored a goal inside the box, but the former England international was the latest to miss the target.

Declan Rice showed Lallana how to do it with a painful hit ten minutes ago, but watched Sanchez dash to his left to hit the ball one-handed.

Lallana then limped off for the final ten minutes and the game tilted in favor of Brighton – but out of nowhere, sidekick Tariq Lamptey dashed in a hopeful cross and Maupay helped his team.
