Although they play Manchester United on Thursday so might be exhausted come Sunday's game.
They have only the last touches to put on a second-placed finish for the season, while their hosts have secured top-flight survival with a couple of games to spare under David Moyes after beating Leicester City last time.
Jose Mourinho made eight changes for the clash at London Stadium, but few fringe players made an impact as Man United prepare for an FA Cup final on May 19.
What TV channel is West Ham vs Man Utd on and is there a live stream? Defenders James Collins (hamstring), Sam Byram (ankle) and Winston Reid (knee) are unfit, while midfielders Michail Antonio (hamstring) and Pedro Obiang (knee-ligament damage) are going to be absent as well.
United were wasteful at times, but Adrian did make three superb saves in the West Ham goal.
Alexis Sanchez has been making the most of the mid-week break, it seems.
David Moyes turned down an offer from a Premier League rival to manage West Ham United but is unsure if the London outfit can match his ambition to fight for a top-half finish, the 55-year-old has said.
"I trust some [players] more than others that can bridge that gap". I worked with the players for a couple of years.
What players should Mourinho start to defeat West Ham United? Arnautovic continued to look a threat and drifted past Smalling to find Joao Mario at the near post but the ball bounced off target to United's relief. He was right - it was an honour to follow those two greats, and other legends like Alvin Martin and Julian Dicks.
And while Michael Carrick is unlikely to play against his former club, the midfielder will start for United at home to Watford on Sunday in his final game as a professional footballer. This should overwhelm Kouyate and Noble and press forward. Unless you can do that, and you go in the direction of the flawless squad, you have to keep players you don't love. Jesse Lingard had an impact but with, unfortunately no effect against Brighton and will hope to have more effect with a goal or an assist. West Ham were six places off the bottom of the league, with nine wins to their name - exactly the same as now. This front three will be very free roaming and will swap positions constantly through the match.
