Cresswell has, of course, scored memorable goals of his own in a West Ham shirt, and would love to find the net again against a Brighton team the Irons have not beaten in ten Premier League meetings.
And the defender, who is available again after missing Thursday’s UEFA Europa Conference League play-off round tie with Viborg FF through suspension, knows the Irons cannot and will not underestimate Graham Potter’s side.
“They are a really good team and we’ve played them loads of times over the years and never beaten them,” he confirmed. “They are a very good team, as Manchester United found out the other day. They move the ball really well, have got some great players and it’ll be another tough test.
“I think there’s that element that some teams or some fans and players might have thought previously ‘It’s only Brighton’ but let me tell you, Brighton are one of the best passing teams in the Premier League and I don’t think Graham Potter has got the credit he deserves. For me, he looks like a fantastic manager and, as a player, you hear the stories of how they go day to day in training he is meant to be really, really, really detailed and he looks a fantastic manager.
“They are one of the hardest teams to play against and statistically, they were one of the best passing teams in the Premier League last year. So yeah, as I say, it’s a tough test and one we need to get over.”
