West Ham United host Leeds United at the London Stadium on Monday night, as the Hammers look to regain their place in the top four of the Premier League.

Most recently, West Ham narrowly lost away to Manchester City last Saturday, as a very impressive team performance wasn't enough to stop City's 19-game unbeaten run. 

In the 30th minute, Ruben Dias opened the scoring with a powerful header from a beautiful, weak foot, delivery from Kevin De Bruyne

Michail Antonio levelled the scoring two minutes from halftime as the Hammers linked up superbly to work their way past the City defence. 

However, John Stones was the man who the scored the winner in the 68th minute, meaning he has now scored more goals this season for City than he has conceded.

However, Leeds United also lost their most recent game when they faced Aston Villa last Saturday night when Villa won by one goal to-nil.  

Anwar El-Ghazi brought the ball down very well before tapping the ball past to score the only goal of the game to extend the gap between Villa and Leeds in the table. 

Team news

West Ham United

Arthur Masuaku will be missed again as he recovers from a successful knee operation. 

Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko both remain on the sidelines. 

Goalkeepers, Lukusz Fabianksi and Darren Randolph are both nursing injuries but David Moyes hopes at least one will be back for the game.

Ryan Fredericks is also a doubt with a groin strain. 

Leeds United

Young winger, Bukayo Saka, is set to miss out with a hamstring injury.

Willian is also likely to miss the London derby with a calf injury.  

Predicted lineups

West Ham United: Fabianski; Coufal, Diop, Dawson, Cresswell, Johnson; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Lingard, Benrahma.

Leeds United: Meslier; Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Dallas; Phillips; Costa, Klich, Roberts, Raphinha; Bamford.

Ones to watch

West Ham United - Jesse Lingard 

After making his fifth appearance on Saturday, against City, the attacking midfielder was at the centre of the Hammers' attack once again. Driving West Ham forward superbly, Lingard will look to build on his very impressive start to his new club. 

The 28-year old was brilliant in all of his games so far for the East London side, being the standout player on the pitch. Settling in very quickly, Lingard has three goals and and two assists, pushing the Hammers towards the Champions League places. 

Leeds United - Raphinha

Raphinha has certainly been one to watch recently. The skilful winger has scored five goals in his debut season for the club alongside five assists. He will definitely be an important figure for Leeds at the London Stadium.
