The Secret to How West Ham Can Beat Leeds today

David Moyes has been able to pick what is probably his strongest XI to start the game vs Leeds at Elland Road today. Antonio is back after a useful rest, while midfield sees the return of our two gladiators Soucek and Rice to do battle with the feisty Kalvin Philips. 

Leeds are missing Bamford while, in contrast, the Hammers have the three amigos - Benrahma, Bowen and Fornals ready to buzz about behind Antonio.

Leeds' style suits the Moyes' method so we can expect West ham to be patient and catch Leeds with turnover ball pretty much like the All Blacks do to their opposition in rugby. 

Leeds have yet to win in the Premiership in 5 attempts and are quoted at 2-1 for the win, while the Hammers despite being the visitors are 6-4.

It's always a belter between these two sides and we are going for a 2-1 win for the Hammers.

  1. David Moyes has done brilliant for W Ham getting top six But that's hes limit He does not let flair players play to there full capabilities to get to the top that's why he failed at Man U and that's a shame
