Leeds – Winless Whites must raise their game?

After almost two decades outside of England’s top-flight, Leeds certainly made up for lost time, entertaining the masses last season with a high-octane brand of football on their way to a ninth place finish under Marcelo Bielsa. The expectation thereafter was that they would improve the squad and kick on this season, but this hasn’t gone according to script so far with the Whites languishing down in 17th.

Despite some eye-catching additions in the summer, notably full-back Junior Firpo from Barcelona and winger Dan James from Manchester United, Leeds have struggled initially. They are one of five teams yet to register a win in the Premier League this term (D3 L2), scoring five and conceding 12. Perhaps of greater concern is that they haven’t really come close to doing so, falling behind in each of their first four fixtures.

Last week’s 1-1 draw at St James Park against crisis-hit Newcastle was the first time they had opened the scoring all season – a fortuitous cross-cum-shot from Raphinha, who is also struggling to scale the same heights. A bigger area of concern, however, rests with a back line which continues to look porous, conceding as many goals in their opening two home games (5) than in the final nine of last season.

West Ham – Hammers to use their heads in West Yorkshire?

Last Sunday’s dramatic conclusion at the London Stadium is unlikely to be forgotten in a hurry. Not least by the villains of the piece, West Ham manager David Moyes and club captain Mark Noble, who between them contrived to miss a penalty that would have secured a hard-earned point from a difficult fixture against Man Utd. As it was, West Ham lost for the first time in the league in eight matches (W4 D3).

The Hammers were visibly second best last time out in the league, losing the xG battle 1.69 to 2.13 in line with Infogol’s model. That they pushed a team touted as potential title challengers so close, though, is testament to the outstanding team ethic installed in the side by Moyes, who had to make do without the talismanic Michail Antonio. The club’s all-time leading goalscorer returns from suspension at Elland Road.

West Ham won this fixture 2-1 last season as part of a league double over Leeds. They now have the opportunity to win a third consecutive head-to-head for the first time in more than seventy years. Both goals here last season were scored by headers, which is an avenue they may choose to exploit once again. Since the start of last season, no Premier League team has profited more from crosses (20 goals).

Leeds Vs West Ham Betting Advice

Last season, West Ham did the double over Leeds, following up their 2-1 win at Elland Road by winning to nil at London Stadium, 2-0. Leeds did see two goals disallowed in the latter fixture, though. Either way, momentum is seemingly with a West Ham side boasting the mental edge as far as recent meetings go but also current form, beginning the season much the brighter (W2 D2 L1 compared with Leeds’ D3 L2).


Leeds Vs West Ham – Key Facts:

  • West Ham did the double against Leeds in the Premier League last season, coming from behind at Elland Road to claim their first away win in this fixture in two decades.
  • Leeds remain winless after five league games (D3 L2), last starting a top-flight campaign without a win in their first six fixtures in 1949.
  • West Ham lost for the first time in eight league games when losing 2-1 at home to Man Utd last Sunday. Since the start of last season they have only lost successive league games twice.


Leeds simply haven’t got going this season, and their underlying numbers support this. The attack is in middling form whereas defensively they rank among the worst sides in the division. Conversely, West Ham are performing well at both ends of the pitch and are boosted by the return from suspension of top scorer Michail Antonio. This may well be enough to ensure they go close to a third league win of the season, and third in a row over Leeds.
