Best Odds: 11/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

West Ham United and Leicester City will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match at London Stadium is slated to kick off at 2:05pm on Sunday and promises to be a cracking game of football.

West Ham United

West Ham United are having a wonderful season and are in the running for the Champions League places in the Premier League table. David Moyes’s side are fourth in the standings at the moment with 52 points from 30 games, a point ahead of London rivals and fourth-placed Chelsea and eight points behind second-placed Manchester United.

The Hammers will head into the match against Leicester on the back of a 3-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home in the Premier League. While West Ham were not particularly great defensively, they won the game without key midfielder Declan Rice. Jesse Lingard was once again a big player, as the Manchester United-one attacking midfielder scored a goal and provided an assist.

Team News:

Declan Rice is out with a knee injury.

Leicester City

Leicester City, like West Ham, are having a wonderful season and could end up in the top four of the Premier League table. The Foxes narrowly missed out on the Champions League last season, but Brendan Rodgers’s side have recovered well and have replicated their form from 2019-20. Leicester are third in the league table at the moment with 56 points from 30 matches.

The Foxes will head into the match against West Ham on the back of a 2-0 defeat to leaders Manchester City at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League. It followed a 3-1 victory over Manchester United at home in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Team News:

Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho are set to start. James Maddison could return to the starting lineup.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored 12 goals and provided seven assists in the Premier League.
  • West Ham defensive midfielder Tomas Soucek has scored nine goals in the Premier League.
  • West Ham beat Leicester 3-0 at the King Power Stadium in October.
  • Leicester have scored 53 goals and conceded 34 goals in the Premier League.
  • West Ham have scored 48 goals and conceded 37 goals in the Premier League.

Conclusion

Both West Ham and Leicester are good attacking teams who go out on the pitch to win football matches. The Hammers and the Foxes should put on a show this coming weekend, and the most likely outcome is a high scored draw.
