Leeds United v West Ham United: Head to head

Since January 1921  Leeds and West Ham have played 106 times with the Hammers winning 29 games, drawing 29 and losing 48 of those encounters.

West Ham can win three consecutive league matches against Leeds for the first time since a run of four from 1948 to 1949 in the second tier.

Leeds have failed to win any of their opening five top-flight fixtures for the first time since 1946. They last started this slowly in any division in 1985.

It’s the first time Leeds have gone five league games without a victory under Marcelo Bielsa.

They can equal their longest winless run from the beginning of a league campaign: six matches in the 1935-36 top flight and again in the second tier in 1951-52.

West Ham are unbeaten in five Premier League away matches since a 3-2 defeat at Newcastle in April (W3, D2).

David Moyes is one short of becoming the fourth person to lose 200 Premier League matches as a manager, after Harry Redknapp, Sam Allardyce and Steve Bruce.

Said Benrahma has been directly involved in five goals in as many Premier League appearances this season, scoring three and setting up two.
