Match Preview

There is a crucial penultimate round of matches in the Premier League this weekend, with all eyes likely to be on the bottom of the standings on Sunday. Leeds United remain in the bottom three spots, but they could move out of the relegation places with victory on the road. However, they have struggled on trips to London this season, as they have lost on all six previous visits.

But, Leeds often end the season on the road on a high, as they have won their final away match in a season in each of the last three. They should also come into this clash in good confidence after beating West Ham 3-2 at the London Stadium last term. However, Leeds are currently on a six-game winless run in the Premier League.

West Ham’s top-flight status has already been assured, and they could move up to 13th in the standings with a victory this weekend. However, their recent form is still inconsistent, as they have lost four of their last five. Over that period, they have secured just a single victory.

But, the Hammers boast an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won three of their five matches against their rivals since Leeds returned to the Premier League. They also haven’t lost back-to-back home matches against the Whites since January 1997.

West Ham vs Leeds Prediction

This could be a very good time to come up against the Hammers, as West Ham are in Europa Conference League action just days before this clash. Therefore, we could see Leeds reignited their survival hopes with a massive three points on the road.
