Team News

Leeds
West Ham
  • Robin Koch was forced off early in the first half of Leeds' 3-1 loss at Chelsea and with his replacement in London, Diego Llorente, sidelined, Marcelo Bielsa has announced that Luke Ayling will start at centre-back.
  • Gaetano Berardi and Adam Forshaw join the defender on the sidelines, while Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton will be assessed.
  • Rodrigo will come into the side that started at Chelsea, with Stuart Dallas starting at right-back and Mateusz Klich dropping in alongside Kalvin Phillips in midfield as confirmed by Bielsa on Wednesday.
  • David Moyes is expecting Michail Antonio, Ryan Fredericks and Andriy Yarmolenko back against Leeds. The former is pushing to regain his place up front.
  • Arthur Masuaku posted a picture revealing knee surgery before quickly deleting it. It seems likely he will miss out here, which may force Aaron Cresswell out to the flank.

Prediction

  • Leeds took an early lead against Chelsea last week, but ended up falling to a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge. The Whites don't have a great record at home this season, with their sole win coming over Fulham in September, though they have also faced Manchester City, Wolves and Leicester after five games at Elland Road.
  • West Ham's three-match winning run came to an end against Manchester United last weekend as they fell to a 3-1 loss to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side. The Hammers have been inconsistent on their travels this term, winning two and losing two of five matches.
  • Friday's meeting between the pair will be the first time they have faced one another at Elland Road in the Premier League since 2003. Leeds won that game 1-0, though given the Whites' sub-par home form this term, West Ham have the means to frustrate Marcelo Bielsa's side and hold the Yorkshire outfit to a draw.
