Leeds United vs West BromEnglish Premier League, KO: 16:00 May 23, 2021, Elland Road
Leeds United will look to close out their season with a home win as they host West Brom in their final English Premier League fixture at Elland Road. Leeds have gotten some impressive results in recent weeks and should be too strong for the already relegated visitors.
A second half blitz saw Leeds United claim a 2-0 victory at Southampton last time out in the Premier League. After enduring a frustrating first half, they burst to life in the second period and sealed the win thanks to goals from Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts.
Manager Marcelo Bielsa will consider this a successful first season back in the Premier League with Leeds set to finish in the top 10. They have a chance of finishing as high as eighth if results go their way on Sunday.
Leeds appear to be ending the season on a high and head into the finale off the back of three straight wins. However, they remain suspect at the back and have conceded in three of their last four home matches.
West Brom failed to build on an early opener as they suffered a 3-1 home defeat to West Ham in their previous Premier League fixture. Matheus Pereira's first half effort was cancelled out on the stroke of halftime before conceding twice late in the contest.
The already relegated Baggies have struggled in the final few weeks of the season and are winless in their last six Premier League matches, losing the last three. They have also struggled on their recent travels with just one win from their last nine away matches.
