West Ham United vs Leeds Preview and Prediction 2021

West Ham United vs Leeds predictions ahead of this Premier League clash on Monday night. Leeds have seen their recent form tail off, so will West Ham take advantage to boost their top four credentials? Read on for our free betting tips and predictions.

Leeds have lost four of their last six league games

The visitors have conceded over two goals per game on the road

Michail Antonio has scored 15 times in his last 22 league games

West Ham have won five of their last six at home

Hammers’ CL dream

West Ham started the weekend just two points shy of Chelsea in the race for the Champions League spots. David Moyes has rolled back the years to his Everton days, dragging an unfancied side into the top four fight.

The Hammers are out to continue their Champions League dream on Monday night. With Man United, Arsenal and Leicester to come in their next five Moyes needs his men to claim three points ahead of a crucial run of games.

Worrying time for Leeds

Leeds come into this clash in poor form, having lost four of their last six Premier League games. At this time of the season it’s not much of a leap to link that with the demands that Marcelo Bielsa puts on his sides. Given their intensity, tiredness is bound to creep in.

Regardless of the reasons behind Leeds’ recent slump, they look vulnerable against a West Ham side who are flying. While Bielsa has thrilled with some of this season’s displays, the visitors have conceded 27 times in their 13 away games this term. That kind of defensive weakness is a concern given how solid West Ham have been.

Leeds’ troubles could be Michail Antonio’s gain. The forward has been directly involved in 19 goals in his last 22 Premier League starts for West Ham (15 goals, 4 assists). He’s scored in their last two games and he’s our anytime scorer prediction for this one.

Home comfort for Hammers

West Ham haven’t had the easiest time in the London Stadium, but that’s changed of late. They’ve won seven of 13 home games this term, while the Hammers have won five of their last six home games in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Leeds have lost seven of their 13 away games this season. They’ve won all of the other six, but three of those wins have come at the current bottom four. With the Hammers looking strong at home we’re backing a home win in our predictions for this clash.

Leeds regularly ship two goals per trip, but they’ve scored in 85% of their matches on the road. Following that, a 2-1 win for West Ham is our correct score prediction.
