Leeds United and West Ham United face off in an English Premier League showdown on Friday at Elland Road.
West Ham United have found some success so far this season and they have picked up 17 points so far this year which puts them in 8th place in the standings. West Ham United had won two games in a row heading into their last game against Manchester United. In the last game against Manchester United the defense really struggled giving up three goals. The offense did manage one goal but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated. This isn’t a West Ham offense that has been elite so to find success it’s usually because the defense is locking down. In this game if they want to come away with a victory the defense will need to lock down.
On the other side of this matchup is Leeds United who have picked up 14 points this season which puts them in 14th place in the standings. Leeds have found some success this season, but at times they have also really struggled. Two games ago against Everton, Leeds United defense locked down not giving up a goal and that led to a 1-0 victory. In the last game though against Chelsea, the defense really struggled giving up three goals while the offense only scored one. The goal scorer in that last game for Leeds United was Patrick Bramford and that goal came in the 4th minute. Leeds United had 55 percent of the possession in that game, but they could only manage three shots on goal and that led to the defeat.
West Ham United knows their defense is going to need to be strong and that will be the difference in this game in terms of the total. Look for both teams to struggle to score and that will lead to this game staying under three goals. In terms of the side it's a lean to West Ham to get the job done, but the strong play is with the under. I will also be laying a few bucks on under 2.5 gaols
