West Ham take on Leeds United at Elland Road in the Premier League tonight, in a game that is hugely important for the East London outfit.

The Hammers are in real trouble at the moment and are currently sitting just outside the relegation zone.

In fact, we’re just two points clear of rock bottom Southampton! What a difference a year makes eh?

Meanwhile, Leeds are only two points above us in the Premier League table, although they have played a game less.

The outcome of tonight’s game could have huge ramifications for David Moyes regarding his job security at the London Stadium.

Moyes has made changes from the team that lost 2-0 to Brentford on Friday night.

In come Aguerd, Fornals and Soucek and in place of Aaron Cresswell, Said Benrahma and Emerson.

Nothing less than three points will do tonight, and it will be a big bonus if the team put in an easy-on-the-eye performance.

We’ve got to take the game to Leeds. They are incredibly poor defensively, and with the attacking players we have at our disposal, we can really hurt them.

What will be unacceptable is another turgid, slow-paced and reactive performance, rather than a proactive, on the front foot one.

The Hammers are certainly capable of beating Leeds. Whether Moyes has a plan up his sleeve designed to really hurt Jesse Marsch’s side remains to be seen though.

A win will be an absolute must.
