For the second Sunday in succession, West Ham and Leeds go head to head in East London.
The Hammers ran out 2-0 winners in the FA Cup third round last weekend, with goals from Manuel Lanzini and Jarrod Bowen sealing the tie.
David Moyes’ side followed that up with a commanding 3-0 victory over bottom side Norwich City in midweek, meaning they have now won their last four games in all competitions.
The recent history books would certainly make the Hammers the favourites for this one. Indeed, they have won each of the last three league meetings between the sides.
Meanwhile, Moyes has never lost to Leeds in seven Premier League matches as a manager, winning six of those.
Additionally, the Whites have lost on seven of their last eight top-flight visits to London under Marcelo Bielsa, whose side have conceded 10 goals in their last two away games.
You must also go back to 2009 for the last time that Leeds won their first away league match of a calendar year.
