Leeds will certainly be wary of the threat posed by West Ham, that’s for sure.

Marcelo Bielsa has noticed a big difference about West Ham

The Hammers are an incredibly hard working team. David Moyes has all of his players working for each other and we are incredibly hard to beat.

It could be argued that we actually look better this season than we did last term, however.

And Marcelo Bielsa pinpointed one area in particular where West Ham have improved, as quoted by Leeds Live:

“They have improved in their creative play. They have a very stable manner in which they play. The majority of the players are better this year than last.”

The Hammers certainly do look very good going forward.

Said Benrahma has reached another level this season whilst Pablo Fornals looks like a completely different player. Meanwhile, Jarrod Bowen has been in exceptional form and Michail Antonio is now regarded as one of the Premier League’s best strikers.

Even Declan Rice has been given more freedom to attack this season.

Bilesa’s comments could be ominous for Leeds.

West Ham ripped them apart in both games last season. Hopefully it’s more of the same from the boys on Saturday afternoon.
