In front of a Leeds defense that has conceded the last 6 matches, strikers like Michail Antonio will not miss this golden opportunity to increase his total goals. In particular, the away team is the favorite prey of The Hammers. The last 4 encounters with this opponent, West Ham won all along with both scoring 2 goals in each match. That shows the complete superiority of the London team compared to the guests.
West Ham’s streak of poor form with a record of 1 draw and 3 defeats since mid-December was halted after they beat Watford 4-1 in the Premier League on the 26th of the same month. A necessary victory helps teachers and coaches David Moyes find inspiration again to enter an important stage in the Premier League.
With only 1 point in the previous 3 rounds, The Hammers once dropped to 5th place in the rankings. Therefore, a stumble against Leeds today will make this team’s goal of attending the Champions League next season far away, even though they have climbed to 4th place after the victory over Norwich City in the round. recent match. Fortunately, in the situation of needing the maximum score, West Ham were playing at home, where they won 2 of the last 3 matches.
For its part, Leeds has not played very convincingly in recent times. After 19 rounds, the away team is currently 16th with 19 points, 18 points behind their opponent in this round, West Ham, on the English Premier League table. The 3-1 victory over Burnley in the previous round was their first victory after 4 consecutive matches that only drew and lost in the No. 1 tournament in England.
Worth mentioning, Leeds’ away record is very bad. Coach Marcelo Bielsa’s teachers and students only had 1 win in the last 6 trips away from home, while losing 4 times. Therefore, Leeds leaving London with 1 defeat is completely understandable, especially when they are in poor form in all competitions with the last 4/5 defeats.
