Ready for a repeat of a game that took place last weekend but in a different competition? Of course, you are!
West Ham United recently hosted Leeds United at the London Stadium on Sunday as the two teams played against each other in the Third Round of the FA Cup; a match that saw the Hammers win 2-0 and progress to the next stage of the competition.
However, this coming Sunday will see the two sides meet again at the same venue as they look to do battle for an important three points. Indeed, if betting odds are anything to go by, then fans might be in for the same outcome just seven days removed, as Betway Sportsbook has priced the Irons at 4/6 strong favourites to win.
Indeed, it would be rather difficult to bet against David Moyes’ side at the moment, though.
The London outfit have been able to put together a run of incredible results this season and ahead of their encounter with Norwich City on Wednesday night find themselves sitting fifth in the league table, just a single point behind Arsenal for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League competition.
Leeds, on the other hand, have been struggling towards the foot of the table, although Marcelo Bielsa’s side has been decimated by the number of injuries that they have had to deal with through the entire campaign.
Losing the likes of England internationals Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford to long-term issues has not been helpful to the Elland Road outfit and it is evident as they have struggled badly to pick up the points that they need.
Despite this, many will be confident that the Whites will have enough about them to beat the drop this season, with other teams perhaps left with a lot more to do without the same quality of players that the Yorkshire outfit can boast.
Nonetheless, they do sit 16th in the Premier League table and are currently on a run of poor form. However, a closer look would highlight that they had played Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal all after each other which is not favourable for any team. Therefore, with those teams now out of the way and no longer needed to be worried about, things could be a little easier.
However, the match against West Ham on Sunday will be one that needs to be navigated successfully, though, otherwise things could be a lot harder than they need to be.
