The match

Leeds hope to end their winless start to the Premier League season when they host West Ham at Elland Road on Saturday. The home side have only picked up three points from their opening five fixtures, a tally that leaves them in 17th place. West Ham, meanwhile, are eighth after winning two, drawing two and losing one of their games. The visitors dramatically lost their last league outing when they conceded a late goal to Manchester United before having the chance to restore parity from the penalty spot, only for David De Gea to save Mark Noble's last-gasp effort. The Hammers got revenge in midweek by knocking United out of the League Cup at Old Trafford. They are unbeaten in their last five away league matches and their previous two visits to Elland Road. David Moyes is hoping that top scorer Michail Antonio will return from injury. The forward, who already has three league goals to his name, is the leading man for a club with top-six ambitions. West Ham's recent outings have been full of goals, with six of their last seven featuring three or more.

Leeds' home games have been equally eventful when it comes to attacking action, with three or more goals in their last four home matches. Unfortunately for Leeds, most of those goals were scored against them. Despite holding second place in the league possession ranks, Leeds have only scored five goals and conceded 12. Marcelo Bielsa needs to shore up his backline, but the principled Argentine would rather fail beautifully than succeed pragmatically. That may be Leeds' downfall here. Back over 2.5 goals.

Key Statistics

  • There have been three or more goals in Leeds' last three home Premier League matches.
  • Six of West Ham's last seven Premier League games featured three or more goals.
  • West Ham are unbeaten in five Premier League away matches.

The bet of our experts

The return of Antonio could swing what should be a high-scoring game in West Ham's favour. Back over 2.5 goals.
