- West Ham made it four wins in all competitions last time out with a comfortable 2-0 beating of Norwich and now have the chance of make it three wins in the space of a week as Leeds Utd make their second trip to the London Stadium in the space of seven days.
- Tomas Soucek missed the victory over Norwich with Manuel Lanzini moving to central midfielder alongside captain Declan Rice and, with Mark Noble doubtful, is expected to partner Rice once again in this one with Fornals playing in the number ten role.
- Leeds Utd have built some breathing space between themselves and the bottom three, but with just one win away from home this season in the Premier League, they have their work cut out for them here, with just a point accrued from their last four league games on the road.
- Striker Patrick Bamford has been dogged by setbacks in his bid to return from injured but looks like he could return here, whilst the likes of Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips, Jamie Shackleton and Joe Gelhardt all miss out through injury and Diego Llorente through suspension.

Leeds Utd must be sick of the site of West Ham by now, with the Hammers having beaten Marcelo Bielsa’s side in each of their four encounters across both league and cup since the Whites’ promotion back to the top flight. David Moyes has assembled an outstanding unit who have combined defensive stability with attacking potency and Leeds are yet to find an answer to counter the combination of speed and strength they possess going forward. This is unlikely to change here, as the visitors remain severely handicapped through injuries and any result other than a West Ham victory in this one as was the case last weekend would be considered a surprise.
Tip: WEST HAM TO WIN
