West Ham facing safety Sunday plus stream


West Ham – having reached the UEFA Europa Conference League final by defeating AZ Alkmaar – welcome Sam Allardyce and Leeds on Sunday

Although not mathematically safe from relegation,  it would take all three clubs below them to go unbeaten in the final week of the season to send the Irons down. Should Everton fail to win at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, our Premier League place would be confirmed.

We go into Sunday’s game with 37 points from 36 matches played, six points more than their opponents, who have a goal difference eleven goals worse than their hosts.

Leeds come into the match having drawn 2-2 with Newcastle United at Elland Road last weekend – a result that left them inside the bottom three, one point behind Everton and three behind Nottingham Forest.

Boss Moyes will be hoping the squad came through Thursday’s UECL tie unscathed, but has admitted  one or two did pick up knocks.

Leeds United manager Sam Allardyce, meanwhile, will be without left-back Junior Firpo (suspension), attacking midfielder Luis Sinisterra (ankle) and midfielders Tyler Adams and Stuart Dallas (both thigh). Defender Liam Cooper (groin) and midfielder Marc Roca (knee) are doubts.

Sunday’s game will be broadcast live by Sky Sports Premier League in the UK, and will be shown across the world by the Premier League’s international broadcast partners.

You can listen to commentary in the UK on BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio London 94.9FM and worldwide on and our official app.
