West Ham have been superb this season. David Moyes’s men are guaranteed to jump back inside the top five if they beat Marcelo Bielsa’s side tonight.

Leeds will be no pushovers that’s for sure.

The Hammers were far too good for the Whites in the return fixture at Elland Road back in December, however.

Dimitar Berbatov makes bold West Ham vs Leeds prediction

Bielsa’s men will surely be better tonight than they were three months ago.


Nonetheless, Dimitar Berbatov told the Metro how he thinks West Ham will batter Leeds at the London Stadium:

“West Ham are the surprise of the season for me and not many people expected them to be in the top four now, including me. I would like to see them continue their good form. Leeds, like I’ve said before, don’t care who they are playing they will explore the space on the pitch and also leave spaces, which is their weakness at times. West Ham can get a good win in this one.”

Prediction 4-1

That really is a bold prediction from Berbatov.

Leeds have been vulnerable defensively, however. So it’s easy to see why yet Bulgarian thinks West Ham could run riot.

Let’s hope Berba ends up nailing it!
