WHZ View: West Ham predicted XI vs Leeds United
David Moyes is predicted to make just one solitary change for the visit of Leeds United again as West Ham look to cement fourth place in the Premier League.
The Hammers dispatched of Leeds last weekend in the FA Cup third-round, before a comfortable 2-0 win over Norwich thanks to a Jarrod Bowen double.
But as they return to the London Stadium to take on Leeds again in the league this time, Moyes is expected to make just one change from the midweek side for this game.
Lukasz Fabianski is an ever-present player in the Premier League this season and that will continue here, behind a new-look defence for this fixture.
Craig Dawson and Issa Diop will continue at centre-back with Kurt Zouma not quite ready to return yet, and Aaron Cresswell should slot in alongside them as a third centre-back.
Vladimir Coufal should get the nod as the right-wing-back after winning his place back in the team, and Arthur Masuaku should start ahead of Ben Johnson on the left.
Tomas Soucek has been suffering with COVID-19 [Ex-WHU Employee] so could miss the game, meaning Declan Rice will likely be partnered by Pablo Fornals in the middle again.
In attack Bowen will likely continue from the right hand side, with the in-form Lanzini from the left and Michail Antonio leading the line.
A win for West Ham will cement their spot in fourth place for the time being and stretch their run to five wins in a row.
