est Ham will want to put their defeat – albeit a valiant one – to Manchester City behind them as they host Leeds on Monday night.
A hard-fought performance was to be in vain against the runaway leaders and David Moyes will be keen to avoid any fallout as their unlikely top-four push continues.
Leeds have lost four of their last six league games following last week’s 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa, but will be able to move above Arsenal with three points on the road.
Date, time and venue
West Ham vs Leeds is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Monday, March 8, 2021.
The match will be held behind closed doors at the London Stadium.
How to watch
TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports.
Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or the Sky Go app.
West Ham are sweating over the fitness of both goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski and Darren Randolph ahead of the game.
The first- and second-choice keepers are suffering with elbow and thigh injuries, respectively. Randolph is more hopeful of being fit, otherwise, third-choice David Martin will deputise.
Elsewhere, Ryan Fredericks will also be assessed over the weekend.
For Leeds, Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo are edging closer to returns and may feature for the Under-23s on Friday ahead of Monday’s game.
Ian Poveda and Jamie Shackleton are also nursing injuries, while Pascal Struijk was forced off in last Saturday’s home defeat to Aston Villa.
Prediction: West Ham 3-1 Leeds
Even defeat to Manchester City could not dampen the Hammers’ spirits and they will feel confident of making in seven wins in 10 in the League on Monday night.
Leeds are an impressive side but also guilty of imploding against a well-organised team, of which David Moyes has. Another statement win for the Hammers.
