West Ham United will welcome Leeds United at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon as both teams look to go all out in search of the three points. The Hammers got the better of the Whites by a 2-0 scoreline when the two sides met in the FA Cup last weekend. Hence, they will be confident about their chances of success in front of their home fans.

Talking Tactics

David Moyes will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation for this clash at home. The Hammers boss could ask his players to dominate the ball and orchestrate some decent chances in the final third.

Marcelo Bielsa will set his team up in the 4-2-3-1 formation as well. The Leeds boss would instruct his men to press the opposition high up the field and cause a few problems for them on the counter.

Kurt Zouma, Ryan Fredericks and Angelo Ogbonna remain absent for this contest due to injuries. Otherwise, Moyes has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this Sunday afternoon.

Key Men

West Ham United

Michail Antonio will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for the Hammers up top. Both Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will focus on dominating the ball in midfield and engineering enough chances for West Ham to win this game.

Leeds United

Both Raphinha and Jack Harrison will be expected to stretch the pitch using their pace out on the flanks. Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich will have to give a good account of themselves if Leeds are to have any chance of claiming something from this game.
