West Ham v Leeds – 16/01/22


Games are still being called off because of Covid but the 2 teams here look likely to put out full strength sides so I thought I should have a pop at it.

Leeds United do not do well against West Ham and have lost all 4 games against them since they came back into the Premier League. Moyes has made the Hammers a tough team to play against and they have never had as many poiunts in the bag after 21 games as they do this season. Moyes has also not lost a Premier League game against Leeds, winning 6 and drawing 1 of the 7 they have played.

The main man for the Hammers is Antonio. He has scored 8 Prem goals this season and set up another 5. Only Mo Salah has a better record than Antonio this season.

Leeds have been struggling badly against teams in the top 7 this time around. They have lost all 7 games so far, scored just 6 goals and let in 26 and, they have also lost 10 of the last 11 games played in London. The only win they’ve had in the capital came against Fulham last year.

Thjey do not score goals on the road, either. They have -layed 9 games away this season and scored just 8 goals. If West Haam can keep Raphinha quiet they are going to struggle badly today. He has scored 3 of those 8 goals.

Two players bang in form for West Ham right now are Lanzini and Bowen. They have scored the last 6 goals for the Hammers, 3 a piece.

If West Ham win today it will equal a club record of 4 wins on the trot against the same team and I reckong they will do that.
