West Ham will be aiming for a strong start in the upcoming Premier League season.
West Ham had a brilliant campaign last season under the guidance of David Moyes. They were arguably the surprise package, finishing a strong 6th place ahead of both London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about West Ham – from their upcoming league fixtures, to the latest football betting odds for the club this term.
When is the next West Ham Premier League game?
West Ham travel to Leeds with a spring in their step this Saturday, after knocking Manchester United out of the League Cup in midweek – revenge for a 2-1 reverse against the same opponents last weekend.
Despite a downturn in their league form, a win would give the Hammers 11 points from their first six games in the Premier League and keep them on track for another tilt at European football next season.
What are the odds that West Ham win the next game?
West Ham are 13/10 favourites to beat Leeds at Elland Road, in what would be a repeat of last season’s result, when David Moyes’ side won 2-1.
Fancy Michail Antonio to set the Hammers on their way? We’ve jumped from 9/2 to 11/2 on Antonio to bag the first goal and his fifth in five Premier League games this season.
What’s the latest West Ham transfer and injury news?
Ryan Fredericks is West Ham’s only injury doubt for the Leeds game, after limping off in the League Cup against Manchester United.
Who are West Ham’s key players?
Comfortably West Ham’s most impressive player last season, Tomáš Souček scored 10 goals last season. He scored all of those from midfield making it an impressive achievement. His tall frame allows him to dominate the midfield as well as being strong in the air. Another key player for the Hammers is Declan Rice. He’s been the subject of much transfer speculation thanks to his brilliant performances over the last few seasons. The midfielder has had a busy summer helping England reach the final of the Euros, and if the Hammers can keep hold of him, he’ll be one of the first names on the team sheet.

What are the West Ham odds to win the Premier League?
The Premier League title is probable slightly out of reach for the Hammers, but a second consecutive top-six finish isn’t. Currently priced at 11/4, West Ham would have to continue the form they had last season. If they manage to improve on that, who’s to say they can’t go two better and finish inside the top-four? They are currently priced at 9/1 to do so but it would take some drastic improvement to beat the teams that finished around them again.
Who is the manager of West Ham?
David Moyes is the current manager of West Ham. No stranger to Premier League football, Moyes was previously at the helm of both Manchester United and Everton. Over the course of his Premier League managerial career, Moyes has managed 583 games, winning 228 and picking up 10 Manager of the Month awards.
Where is West Ham’s stadium?
West Ham apply their trade at the London Stadium, having moved from the Boleyn Ground back in 2016. The stadium can hold 60,000 football spectators.
