West Ham vs Leeds Prediction: PL | 08.03.2021
West Ham United will be looking to return to the top four this weekend, but only a win over Leeds United at London Stadium will make it happen.
Premier League preview
It’s been an exceptional season for West Ham United at this point, as David Moyes could potentially lead the Hammers to a Champions League final. The manager has refused to get carried away by their performances so far this season and has consistently downplayed his chances of finishing in the top four. However, it might be difficult to object to them achieving that goal given the form they have been in throughout the season. They have lost seven times this season, the same number of defeats Leicester City have suffered, and one less than Chelsea. They have also scored more goals than Everton and fewer than Manchester United. However, they will have to return to victory after being defeated by Manchester City last weekend. There was no shame in this loss at the Etihad, as it was widely believed that they should have taken at least one point from this game, as their performance deserved it.
Leeds are another team that will be happy with their performances so far this season, and their involvement in this game will make them unmissable. The Whites have scored the most goals in their games this season, having scored 43 times and conceding 44 goals so far. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have no danger of being relegated this season, but they will be keen to finish the season as strong as possible. Their form has been very inconsistent in recent weeks, as they have lost four and won twice, and will need an improved performance over what they showed last time, as they were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa.

Prediction West Ham United vs Leeds United
