LU vs WHU Dream11 Team Prediction Tips For Leeds United vs West Ham United Premier League Live Score 25 September


LU vs WHU Dream11: Leeds United host West ham United at Elland Road today. It promises to be a high-scoring affair considering the philosophy of both teams. Leeds are yet to win in the Premier League and sit just outside of the relegation zone. They drew 1-1 at Newcastle last time out in a highly entertaining encounter. Raphinha’s goal was canceled out by Allan Saint-Maximin.

Meanwhile, West Ham have eight points off five games. They had back-to-back games against Manchester United. Although they were beaten late into the game in a thrilling finish in the league, they got the better of the Reds in the EFL Cup. Said Benrahma’s goal was enough to see the progress to the Round of 16.
