class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Hammers have enjoyed plenty of Premier League success at the London Stadium and our tipster expects them to enjoy a fruitful evening on Monday
West Ham United will be looking to continue their unlikely Champions League push when they welcome Leeds United to the London Stadium on Monday night.
Arguably the surprise package of this season, David Moyes’ men are seventh in the Premier League but will move up two places with victory in this clash.
West Ham United vs Leeds United Latest Odds
The Hammers won the reverse fixture 2-1 and bet365 go 21/20 (2.05) that they complete a league double over Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Leeds have only won two of their last six games in the top flight and are 12/5 (3.40) outsiders to pick up their 12th win of the campaign.
No team has drawn fewer games than the two that the Whites have tallied this season and a stalemate in this one can be backed at 27/10 (3.70).
West Ham United vs Leeds United Team News
Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski and Darren Randolph all face late fitness tests, but Arthur Masuaku, Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko are injured.
Bielsa could welcome back Kalvin Phillips and Jamie Shackleton, however, this game comes too soon for Robin Koch and Gaetano Berardi whilst Adam Forshaw is a long-term absentee.
West Ham United vs Leeds United Preview
If West Ham are to realise their aspirations of playing European football next season, then maintaining strong home form is likely to be the key.
Only runaway leaders Manchester City have taken more points on home turf than the Hammers’ 24 this term, with Moyes’ men winning four of their last five at the London Stadium – contributing to a run of seven wins and two draws in their last 10 Premier League games.
They will certainly fancy themselves to expose Leeds’ defensive shortcomings on Monday, with 10 of the east Londoners’ 40 goals this season coming from the head – the second-most in the league – and 14 coming from either corners or free kicks, which is the highest total in the division.
As entertaining as Bielsa’s side have been going forward this season, huge question marks remain over their defence and no team has conceded more headed goals or from more corners this season than them.
West Ham United vs Leeds United Tips and Predictions
West Ham to score over 1.5 goals at 5/6 (1.83) looks the best bet for this game, with it paying out in four of their last six home games and also in the previous meeting between the sides.
That clash at Elland Road back in December saw West Ham score two headed goals and backing Tomas Soucek, who scored one of those, to add to his tally of three headed strikes this season at 12/5 (3.40) is worthy of a small stake.
