Here are five football tips Tom Clee thinks you should consider for Gillingham v West Ham on Sunday evening.

Gillingham to win or draw

Gillingham are unbeaten in eight home matches, winning seven (one after extra time).

West Ham were thumped 4-0 at Oxford in the EFL Cup in September, lost away to AFC Wimbledon in the third round last season and needed a replay to beat Shrewsbury the season before that.

Under 1.5 West Ham goals

Gillingham have conceded just two goals in their last eight home games.

West Ham have only scored five in their last nine away, so don’t expect them to run riot at Priestfield.

Alex Jakubiak to score

Jakubiak is Gillingham’s top scorer this season, despite not starting a league game in over two months.

The Watford loanee is easily the most-accomplished finisher in the Gills’ squad and, having made an impact off the bench in the last two, could be handed a start after a busy festive schedule.

Over 11.5 total corners

All but one of Gillingham’s last nine matches have reached double figures for corners.

West Ham’s last four have seen an average of exactly 12.

Over 3.5 total cards

West Ham have averaged over two cards per game in the Premier League this season.

There have been four or more in six of Gillingham’s last eight.

In front of a sell-out crowd, tempers could flare.
