Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 24
Kick-off:
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester)

The home side have confounded critics and exceeded pre-season expectations by rising to the elite top-four mix of the Premier League. They were in fact, at a time, challenging run-away leaders Liverpool for the title.

A rough patch in recent weeks has seen the Foxes relinquish their long-standing second-place spot to the imperious Manchester City. The club’s supporters wouldn’t care so much about drop, however, given their side manages to maintain their place in the top-four.

King Power Stadium will separate the shaft from the wheat when these two sides lock horns on Wednesday evening, in a battle of wits.

Leicester City vs West Ham United Team News

Leicester City were on the road to Burnley last time out, as they hoped to secure maximum points to bounce back to winning ways. Taking the lead very early in the game, it appeared to be heading for another routine win for the away side.

However, Burney came out the blocks firing on all cylinders immediately after the restart. Coming on the pitch for the second forty-five, the Clarets registered two important goals to complete an amazing comeback, posting a 2-1 scorecard.

Whatever pep talk head coach Sean Dyche gave his players at half-time was absolutely worth the treat as his Burnley side looked a totally different side in the second half. The Foxes must have been kicking themselves for letting their lead slip off their grip so easily.

West Ham, on the other hand, were handed a tough game against Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton at home on the last match-day. However, David Moyes was able to guide his side to a one-all draw against the Toffees, much to the delight of the club’s supporters.

Sitting just a single point away from the relegation places, the Hammers need to continue churning out such inspiring performances to stay clear from the drop zone. Surely, they will have their work cut-out in their bid to achieve this ambition.

For this fixture, consider that the home side will be desperate to set the record straight following a string of poor results and performances in recent weeks. In spite of their recent stumbles, the wounded Foxes are still one of the most dangerous opponents for any team to take on right now.

Leicester City have been impressive at the King Power Stadium so far this season, maintaining an unbeaten status in fourteen of their previous sixteen league home games, their sole two losses coming against the invincible Liverpool and Southampton.

Indeed, Brendan Rodgers’ side began the campaign with a seven-game winning run on this ground and have failed to find the back of the net only once at this venue since August.

In sharp contrast, West Ham United were winless in eight of their previous eleven games on the road and had failed to score in six of the preceding eleven away match-ups.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Leicester: Daniel Amartey.

West Ham: Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko.

Leicester vs West Ham Predictions

Keeping all these in mind, the home side have to be considered overwhelming favorites for the win. Their recent slump in the league will only give the Foxes more determination and drive to return to winning ways.

West Ham may turn out victims of a Leicester City backlash here. Though David Moyes seem to have steadied the tide here, salvaging a positive result against this impressive Leicester side may be too much an ask for the Scotsman.

Expect a frantic game of football at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday, with the hosts grabbing all three points, not without conceding a goal, at the least, before the end of the ninety minutes.
