This Saturday, Leeds United is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 2.4 goals per contest. They and West Ham United are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday at Elland Road.
West Ham lost a heartbreaker to Manchester United when they met in March, and they left with a heavy heart again on Sunday. The Irons fell a goal short of Man United, losing 2-1. The game was a 1-1 toss-up at halftime, but West Ham was outplayed the rest of the way.
Leeds excelled on their return to the top flight last season, finishing ninth in the table, and it would be fair to say that expectations were high ahead of the start of the 2021-22 campaign, but there is no getting away from the fact that it has been a tough opening few weeks for the club.
Indeed, a record of three wins and two defeats from five league matches has left them in 17th position in the table, and they are one of five teams still searching for their first win of the Premier League campaign.
The Whites secured their spot in the fourth round of the EFL Cup by beating Fulham on penalties earlier this week, but they suffered a 3-0 loss to Liverpool in their last league fixture at Elland Road before playing out a 1-1 draw against Newcastle United in the league on September 17.

Marcelo Bielsa‘s side now have two huge home matches against West Ham and Watford before the next international break, and the former Champions League semi-finalists will certainly be wary of dropping into the relegation zone at this stage of the season.
Leeds have not actually beaten West Ham since 2005 and suffered back-to-back losses in the Premier League last term, including a 2-1 defeat at Elland Road in December 2020.
