West Ham – contender for top 4
The Hammers lost against Man City in the previous round but the team remained some positive impressions after the end of the 90 minutes. If the hosts win today, they will remove Chelsea from the 4th place. But is West Ham a real contender for the top 4 considering the claims of Liverpool, Tottenham, Aston Villa, Everton, Chelsea? We think they have demonstrated some consistency this season and it won’t be a big surprise if West Ham takes part in the Champions League next season.
Ups and downs for Leeds
The season of Leeds so far could be best described as a good one. The team has cemented a place in the middle of the league table. Reaching the Europa League zone is unrealistic but Leeds has proved they are a team capable of beating all EPL teams. The coach Marcelo Bielsa cannot use the services of the defender Robert Koch who is with a long-term knee injury.
We think that West Ham has been in better current form and that’s why it is unlikely to see the Hammers losing the game. Leeds is capable of scoring a goal.
