Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 20
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London)
The Foxes were on the receiving end of a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Club World Cup champions Liverpool on Boxing Day, the club’s supporters left disappointed as they headed out of the stadium at the sound of the referee’s final whistle.

Now in danger of losing their second-spot to Manchester City who are a single point adrift in third place with an important game in hand, Brendan Rodgers will be looking to secure maximum points against the Hammers to continue their push for a top-4 finish come the end of the season.

The visitors are overwhelming favourites to come away with the win heading into this fixture and with Jamie Vardy in red-hot form, count on the England international to get in amongst the goals.

West Ham United vs Leicester City Team News

West Ham allowed a one-goal lead slip off their grasp in their Boxing Day clash against Crystal Palace on Tuesday. The travelling supporters were in fine voice when their team forged ahead early in the game, looking set to post maximum points on the board.

However, Crystal Palace’s efforts in search of an equalizer soon paid off after huffing and puffing ever since going behind. The game look destined for a draw before Jordan Ayew turned savior for the Eagles with a beauty of a goal to deprive the visitors of all three points.

A point away from the relegation places, with a game in hand, Manuel Pellegrini’s side are badly in need of a win to steer them further away from the drop zone. A game against Leicester City is not really one that these cluster of players will savor at the moment, given the quality of the opposition in question.

Leicester City, on the other hand, were annihilated in their last game against league leaders Liverpool in a thrilling 4-0 encounter. Being the only team tipped to take the title race right down to the wire, the loss has sent Jurgen Klopp’s side 13 points clear at the top of the log.

Barring the humiliating loss on Boxing Day, Brendan Rodger’s men have been simply incredible this season. Having garnered 39 points from 19 games so far this season, they can be considered huge candidates for a Champions League place finish come the end of the season.

The Foxes have turned the King Power Stadium into something of a fortress this season, registering seven wins and a further two draws in their previous nine games on this ground. The defeat to Liverpool spelled their first home loss this season.

Despite losing their last two league games to Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, the class and talent within the Leicester ranks is bare for everyone to see. They were always going to struggle against these English giants and the club’s supporters can have no complaints about the losses.

Brendan Rodgers’ men are overwhelming favorites to come away with the victory in this fixture as the Foxes look to return to winning ways.
