The Match-Week 22 of the Premier League kicks off over the weekend and will feature West Ham United taking on Leeds United on Sunday, 16th January at 07:30 PM IST. The fixture will take place at the London Stadium and hence, will be an away game for the Whites.

West Ham are currently sitting 4th in the league, 2-points ahead of their current top four competition, fifth-placed Arsenal. The Hammers are coming from a dominating 2-0 victory against Norwich. Considering David Moyes’ side already defeated Leeds 2-0 last week in their FA Cup tie, it sure wouldn’t be a surprise if his team did it again.

On the other hand, Leeds are currently sitting 16th in the league and have not shown the same potential as they did last season. After the embarrassing FA Cup exit, Marcelo Bielsa’s men will want to seek redemption and vengeance in their upcoming clash.

Our score predictions: West Ham United 3-1 Leeds

The Hammers are in top form this season as they try to earn their Champions League spot. Considering the oppositions’ shaky defence, Moyes would seek to capitalize on the opportunity to secure all 3-points with his attacking arsenal. However, Leeds’ talisman Raphinha will definitely make things difficult for the Irons and may just net a goal in the process.
