The beauty of the Premier League is that while there may be some disruption in places throughout the course of the season, the majority of fixtures are still going to go ahead as planned; which is the case this weekend. We’re going to be taking a look at a game hat will pit two sides against one another for the second time in a matter of days as West Ham United take on Leeds United.

West Ham

While they did beat Leeds 2-0 in the FA Cup less than a week ago, the Hammers can’t afford to take their eyes off of the prize. They’re well positioned to make a serious run at the top four and given that they’re already situated in fourth place, with some possible new additions coming in the January transfer window, we’d say now is their moment to become the team their fans have always believed they can be.


Leeds are staring down the barrel of a relegation battle but the good news for them is that the four sides below them, to put it bluntly, aren’t exactly looking great in their pursuit of survival. Marcelo Bielsa is obviously going to be under a tremendous amount of pressure between now and the end of the campaign but something tells us that isn’t going to phase him. Instead, it should serve as further motivation with the fanbase believing they can get back to their glory days – given time, of course.

Factors to Consider

  • West Ham are 4th in the Premier League whereas Leeds are 16th.
  • West Ham have won four and lost two of their last six games.
  • Leeds have won one, drawn one and lost four of their last six games.
  • West Ham have scored 14 goals and conceded eight in their last six games.
  • Leeds have scored eight goals and conceded 19 in their last six games.


West Ham are a well-rounded side and the important thing for them in this game is to ensure they don’t get dragged into a fire fight. We think they’ll struggle with the pace of the fixture early on but eventually, they’ll start to really come into their own and put some pressure on Leeds. Eventually, they’ll take over, leading to a comfortable 2-0 win that keeps their top six – and perhaps even top four – ambitions alive and well.
