It's another interesting indicator of where we are this season. If I'm being objective I'd mark a draw on my betting slip as the most likely outcome, as Leeds must tighten up at some point surely, otherwise I really do think they are relegation candidates. But this West Ham team have kept surpassing expectations, and recruitment and Moyes' handling of the squad has been so good that only 2 of our strongest 11 (leaving aside the keeper debate) played midweek. With that in mind, I'm crumpling up and throwing away that betting slip and putting a big 'away win' on my new one.

A tight game but Leeds to crumble in the last 30 minutes.

Leeds 1 West Ham 4
Yeah some of this 🤙

Leeds back 4 looks very weak. We really should be able to exploit that.

Our best 11 starting and look at that bench too :shock: amazing what a few choice signings can do. We are a striker and a pacey left back away from being a consistent top 6 team in my opinion.

Strong lineup. A bit surprised Bowen hasn't been rested for Vlasic

I get what you are saying about resting Bowen but I'm not sure Vlasic has shown enough yet to deserve a start

Looks as if Vlasic is the Europa option, possibly with Lanzini.

Can't personally remember a time when the matchday 18 has looked so capable; even the youngest sub has plenty of experience.

Really strong bench. Any one of our subs would make the first xi.

Fitness and speed will be in our favour.

In Moyes we trust.

Dan James issupposed to be one of the fastest in the league, isn't he?
Leeds are a pretty fit team. In most games this season, we've tended to look ropey after an hour.

We have our A team out today (GK debatable). I think if we can weather the early pressure from Leeds we can get a good result with at least a couple of goals. They look very suspect in defence and could leave themselves very open to our counter attacks

They've got a pretty lively attack so we shouldn't underestimate that, but they have a well known fallibility from corners etc. There is a huge mismatch in terms of height/aerial prowess here.

I like a few of their players - Meslier, Phillips, Rafinha.

Firpo has looked well dodgy so far when he’s appeared. Not sure if it’s representative of his true level but we didn’t miss out there on early viewings.

Leeds fans think Cresswell is a superstar in the making, but I don’t think he will have ever come up agains someone like Antonio. Leeds only play one way and we should have space to exploit. We just need to be robust in defence.

Firpo always looked best playing as a LWB at Betis. His heat map was often mainly around the opposition box. It's probably the equivalent of playing Masuaku at LB.

One trend of late is you can get a sense of our likely performance very very early on. If we start sluggishly it tends to be reflected throughout. And you can certainly tell when they’re on it - we had blistering starts against Leicester and Dinamo.

Fornals to run riot and have a field day here, arriving late in the box to slot home the cutbacks :thup:
