Football Tips: Phil Thompson backing Leeds to march on against West Ham

Thommo's back to help you start the weekend right.


Paddy’s football trader Phil Thompson has once again teamed up with the good folk at PPTV to take a look at the weekend’s Premier League action. We’ve got a Friday night treat in score as Marcelo Bielsa’s entertaining Leeds host David Moyes’ improving West Ham at 8pm.

West Ham were going ok last weekend beating Manchester United, but the comeback kings did it again to spoil their weekend. I think this is an intriguing game because they’re sitting pretty and everything’s hunky-dory with both of them. I think the two have done really well.

Marcelo Bielsa’s done really well with Leeds, they’ve just got to tighten up defensively. They’ve conceded 16 in their last five defeats which is not good, but they do look an attractive team.

They’ve had 161 shots at goal, there’s only Liverpool who have had more than Leeds, but I do think they need to turn it around quickly. Leeds also went ahead last week against Chelsea and as we know.

West Ham have scored in their last 10 league matches so you would fancy them to score so that may be a good bet in this one as well. But they’ve only had three away wins in 15 Premier League matches.

THOMMO’S TIPS: I think with all that in mind I have to go for Leeds United to win 2-1. So that’s with both teams to score and Patrick Bamford to Score at Anytime.
