West Ham United vs Leeds United Prediction: Premier League Match on 08.03.2021
West Ham United will be looking to move back into the top-four this weekend, but only a win against Leeds United at the London Stadium will achieve that for them.
Premier League Preview
It has been an exceptional season for West Ham United to this point, as David Moyes could potentially lead the Hammers to a Champions League finish. The manager has refused to get carried away by their performances so far this season, and has constantly played down their chances of finishing in a top-four spot. However, it could be hard to argue against them achieving that considering the form that they have been in throughout the season. They have lost seven times this season, which is the same number of defeats suffered by Leicester City, and one fewer than Chelsea. They have also scored more goals than Everton, and fewer than Manchester United. However, they will need to get back to winning ways after being defeated by Manchester City last weekend. There was no shame in that defeat at the Etihad, as it was widely believed that they should have taken at least a point from that game, as their performance deserved that.
Leeds are another side that will be pleased with their performances so far this season, and their involvement in this game will make it must see. The Whites have had the most goals in their games this season, as they have scored 43 times and conceded 44 goals so far. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have no danger of being relegated this season, but they will be keen to end the season as strongly as possible. Their form has been very inconsistent over recent weeks, as they have lost four and won twice, and will need an improved performance from the one that they showed last time out, as they were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa.
West Ham United vs Leeds United Head To Head
West Ham won the meeting between these sides earlier in the season 2-1, which was the first time that they had played each other in the top-flight since 2003. The four games between the sides between 2003 and 2020 came in the Championship, with the teams playing out three draws, while the Whites won once.
West Ham United vs Leeds United Prediction
West Ham and Leeds are two of the most famous clubs in England, and there will be a feeling that there will be an entertaining game between the sides this weekend. Three of the last four games have had over 2.5 goals, so we would make that a good bet this weekend.
