LUFC Leeds v West Ham - Statistically speaking

LUFC Leeds v West Ham - Statistically speaking

Vital Leeds looks at the form and stats of both Leeds United and West Ham ahead of the game at Elland Road on Saturday.


The whites come into the game on the back of their first win under manager Neil Warnock.

Leeds won 2-0 at Middlesbrough last weekend and they have kept three clean sheets in the four games played under Warnock.

Southampton beat Leeds 1-0 in their last home game despite Leeds dominating the game.

So far this season at home, Leeds have won 8, drawn 2 and lost 7.

Only Nottingham Forest (11) and Bristol City (9) have lost more home games than Leeds (7) this season.

Leeds are one of only six sides in the championship to have a minus goal difference at home.

They have managed just two clean sheets at home this season against Portsmouth (October) and Millwall (December).

There is yet to be a 0-0 at Elland Road this season, their last coming against Reading in April last season.

Leeds have lost just one of their last thirteen games against West Ham when the hammers won 1-0 at Elland Road in November 2000.

There have been just two goalless draws in the fifty meetings between the two at Leeds.

Leeds are currently in 10th place with 53 points from 36 points and they are four points behind the play-off places.

Despite being just four points outside the play-off places they have won just five of their last sixteen games.

West Ham
West Ham come into the game unbeaten in seven games but they have slipped out of the automatic promotion places after drawing their last two games, both at home.

Last time out they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by struggling Doncaster Rovers.

In their last away game, they beat promotion chasing Cardiff City 2-0.

They have won three of their last four away from home, with their only defeat being their heaviest defeat of the season when they were beaten 5-1 at Ipswich Town.

So far this season away from home, they have won 10, drawn 3 and lost 4.

They have the best away record in the championship, having picked up 33 points from their 17 games.

A win for West Ham would equal a club record eleven away wins in a season.

Only Blackpool (32) have scored more away goals than West Ham (28) this season.

Only Hull City (13) and Reading (14) have better away defensive record than West Ham (17) this season.

West Ham have scored on just four of their last twelve visits to Elland Road.

West Ham are currently in third place with 66 points from 35 games and are one point behind Reading who fill the last automatic promotion place.
