West Ham may actually travel to the King Power Stadium this weekend as favourites with Leicester’s form having taken a nosedive.
Brendan Rodgers’ side lost 4-1 to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and, while they put in an improved performance against Liverpool on Thursday, it wasn’t enough to get any points from the trip to Anfield.
Hammers boss David Moyes only has two players currently on the treatment table ahead of the clash against the Foxes. Arthur Masuaku and Angelo Ogbonna both have knee injuries.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Play Leicester:
Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Soucek, Fornals, Rice, Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma
Leicester have five players sidelined. Wesley Fofana (ankle), Jonny Evans (hamstring), Timothy Castagne (thigh), Jamie Vardy (hamstring) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) are all unavailable.
Leicester’s Predicted XI:
Schmeichel, Justin, Ndidi, Soyuncu, Thomas, Tielemans, Soumare, Dewsbury-Hall, Maddison, Daka, Barnes
The bookies have given West Ham the edge for this game with Betfred pricing them at 7/5 to win. A draw is 13/5 with Coral while a victory for Leicester is 39/20 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 2-1 to West Ham
