The Hammers welcome the Whites to the London Stadium in the midst of a fine run of form.

Beating Leeds will be absolutely essential if we are to have any chance of finishing inside the top four this season.

West Ham dominated Leeds in the return fixture at Elland Road back in December. The 2-1 scoreline actually ended up flattering the west Yorkshire outfit.

Gaetano Berardi and Ian Poveda were both selected for the under-23 squad against Crystal Palace yesterday. Berardi played 45 minutes whilst Poveda was an unused substitute.

The duo’s timely return will be a big boost for Leeds with the likes of Robin Koch, Adam Forshaw, Kalvin Phillips, Rodrigo Moreno and Jamie Shackleton all currently out injured.

West Ham will have to be at their very best to beat Leeds on Monday night. Marcelo Bielsa’s team are a superb footballing side.

And having Berardi and Poveda available to call upon in six days time will make the Whites an even stronger proposition.

It should be a really entertaining clash at the London Stadium. And both teams will fancy their chances of taking three points from the game.
