West Ham vs Leeds Prediction & Match Preview

West Ham United and Leeds United take on each other at Olympic Stadium in London in the closing match of round 27. 

The Hammers are enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting just below the Champions League berth, and we are positive that they will go for a win against Leeds. 

Antonio, who found the net in a 2-1 loss at Man City, is widely expected to lead the line for the home team.

The Whites, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa. Marcelo Bielsa’s men sit in the middle of the table, meaning that they have little to play for in Monday’s clash. 

All Masuaku, Ogbonna, and Yarmolenko are injured for the hosts, while Fredericks is a major doubt. As for the visiting team, Rodrigo, Koch, Shackleton, and Forshaw are all likely to miss the match through injuries, while important midfielder Phillips is rated doubtful.

Team News:

West Ham will again be without the services of Arthur Masuaku, Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko through injury, while Ryan Fredericks, Darren Randolph and Lukasz Fabianski are all doubts.

Moyes is hopeful that first-choice goalkeeper Fabianski will recover from an arm injury in time for the contest, particularly as number two Randolph is now struggling with a hip issue.

The home side could revert back to a four-man defence for this match, with Ben Johnson dropping out, allowing Jarrod Bowen to join Jesse Lingard, Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals in the forward areas.

As for Leeds, Robin Koch and Adam Forshaw are still unavailable for selection, while Kalvin Phillips, Rodrigo Moreno, Jamie Shackleton and Ian Poveda remain doubts.

Rodrigo, Poveda and Gaetano Berardi featured for the team's Under-23s side on Friday evening, but it would be a surprise to see the trio involved here due to the quick turnaround.

Phillips is thought to have a 50% chance of returning for the contest at this stage but could ultimately just miss out, with Pascal Struijk shaking off a knock to feature in the middle of the park.

Raphinha has been excellent for the Whites this term and will again feature in the final third of the field, while there should also be starts for Jack Harrison and Ezgjan Alioski.

West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Lingard, Fornals; Antonio

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Alioski; Raphinha, Struijk, Klich, Dallas, Harrison; Bamford
