Leeds look to end London horror shows

Leeds have every reason to be seriously worried as they approach their fifth game in London this season.

So far they have lost every one of their four previous games and are currently reported to be carrying eight injuries.

The Yorkshire outfit have been beaten 4-1 at Selhurst Park, 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, 3-0 at Spurs and 4-2 at Arsenal this season.

It’s a terrible record for a team sitting in 11th place during their first season back ay the top level and they have also, of course been beaten 2-1 by the Hammers at Elland Road.

On top of that they have a horrific injury list with Kalvin Phillips suffering a calf problem, Rodrigo – groin , Pascal Struijk – unspecified, Jamie Shackleton – groin , Ian Poveda – ankle , Robin Koch – knee , Gaetano Berardi – ACL injury and  Adam Forshaw – hip injury

The Hammers meanwhile are in good nick with Lukasz Fabianski being expected back after injuring an arm in training with Angelo Ogbonna their only other problem.
