LEICESTER CITY V WEST HAM MATCH PREVIEW

Home » LEICESTER CITY V WEST HAM MATCH PREVIEW

Leicester City are experiencing some dip in form but can be backed to end their dire run when West Ham visit.

Premier League 2019/2020
Date: Wednesday 22nd, January
Kick-off: 20:30 pm
Venue: King Power stadium
TV Channel: BT Sport

Leicester have stuttered to a pair of successive losses for the second time in the Premier League this season, all coming within the space of a month.

Burnley were the latest to come away with maximum points against them, and the Foxes will be cursing their luck having led through halftime in that 2-1 defeat, and even had a Jamie Vardy penalty kept out by Nick Pope at Turf Moor.

Despite their struggles, Brendan Rodger’s side are still well on course to return to the Champions League as they remain six points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea.

West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Everton last weekend meant they have won just three of their last 16 league games, with just one coming in their last five.

Significantly, the Hammers are poor travellers having lost five of their last seven league trips and will not be particularly enthusiastic with taking in another game on the road.

They are winless in their last three against the Foxes, drawing 1-1 the last time they travelled to Leicestershire.

Team news

Leicester City

Rodgers will hope to have recuperating midfielder Wilfred Ndidi ready for this clash, while Daniel Amartey is ruled out. Matty James is equally nearing return to action but is well behind the pecking order.

West Ham

David Moyes will be sweating on the fitness of Felipe Anderson and Antonio Michail.

Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko are ruled out.

Team form

Leicester will need to stem the losses sooner rather than later, and after recording their sixth league loss last time out will want to quickly get back to winning ways. Leicester’s last five league games (LWWLL)

West Ham’s form have been erratic, and after back-to-back wins to kickstart the year, have drawn one and lost one of their last two. West Ham’s last five league games (LLWLD)

Suggested bets

Leicester’s defence have surprisingly seen some blip in recent weeks, so Rodgers will particularly be intent of keeping a solid, compact setup meant to keep out the goals. I’d be opposing the goals market thus, even if the Foxes go on to win, it is expected this game will see few goals. Under 2.5 is 29/20.

A ‘NO’ for Both Teams To Score equally takes fancy in regards to this, and is prized 5/4.
