BRIGHTON, England (AP) — West Ham missed the chance to snatch a dramatic return to the Europa League after squandering a lead to lose 3-1 to Brighton in the Premier League. The Hammers lost in the semifinals of the continental competition just over two weeks ago and were on course to leapfrog Manchester United into sixth position following Michail Antonio’s brilliant 40th-minute opener. Second-half strikes from Joel Veltman, Pascal Gross and Danny Welbeck turned the game in Brighton’s favor to prevent David Moyes’ team capitalizing on United losing 1-0 at Crystal Palace. The east London club must be content with seventh place and a spot in the Europa Conference League next season
