West Ham United vs Leeds United

, KO: 14:00 Jan 9, 2022, London Stadium
Leeds United

WEST HAM welcome fellow Premier League side Leeds to the London Stadium for their third-round tie in the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Hammers had been going through a tough time before bagging morale-boosting back-to-back wins over both Watford and Crystal Palace.

That pair of victories has got West Ham's push for a Premier League top-four berth back on track, with the capital club surveying the standings from the lofty heights of fifth-place.

David Moyes' men now turn their attention to the FA Cup, a competition they have struggled in over the years, having failed to advance from the fourth round in five of the last six seasons.

Leeds, meanwhile, make the trip south to Stratford on the back of a much-needed 3-1 victory over relegation-threatened Burnley.

That triumph has provided Marcelo Bielsa's men with some breathing space above the drop zone, with the Whites now boasting an eight-point buffer on the bottom three teams in the top flight.

Outright Betting

West Ham have emerged victorious from each of the last three meetings between the two sides and the bookies' odds suggest that sequence will continue here, with a home win trading at 5/6 (SBK).

Leeds, who have won just once away from Elland Road all season, enter this cup tie as 4/1 (Bet 365) outsiders while the draw inside 90 minutes has been chalked up at 11/4 (SBK).

Betting Angles

With both managers likely to make changes for this third-round clash, I'm going to steer clear of the 1×2 market and instead combine both teams to score and over six match corners at 10/11 (Bet 365).

Both clubs are renowned for their forward-thinking styles and that should lead to an entertaining encounter between the pair in front of the TV cameras on Sunday.

West Ham have entertained Premier League crowds all season, with both teams getting on the scoresheet in a league-high 14 of the Irons' top flight outings this term to date.

Leeds have also been flying the flag for goal-based backers this season, with both sides obliging in 13 of 19 Premier League matches involving Marcelo Bielsa's attack-minded outfit.

With that in mind, I'm happy to back both sides to strike at the London Stadium, but to boost the odds to 10/11 (Bet 365), I'll also throw over six match corners into the mix.

West Ham matches are averaging a healthy 11.05 corners per-game this season, while Leeds' tally sits at 9.53, not to mention the above-mentioned Bet Builder banked when the two teams crossed paths in the Premier League earlier this season.

Elsewhere, I'll also dip into the anytime goalscorer market and have s speculative punt on West Ham defender Craig Dawson to get on the scoresheet at 15/2 with Betfred.

The experienced Hammers centre-half has a decent record of popping up with goals – chipping in with four strikes in 26 appearances last season – one of which was against a Leeds side who have proven to be particularly vulnerable when defending set-pieces since their promotion back to the Premier League.
