Leicester City vs West Ham United Match Preview

Leicester’s second mini-blip of the season currently looks more serious than the first one and they will be eager to get back on track against West Ham.

The Foxes went four matches without a win up to Boxing Day, but that run included games against Liverpool and Manchester City. Now they are without a victory in three – all against teams well below them in the Premier League table.

The fact these spells have come so close together is also a concern, hinting that Brendan Rodgers’ side may have over-achieved in the first half of the campaign – and essentially they have when compared to most pre-season predictions. Few people would have tipped Leicester to be clear in third position in mid-January.

A 2-1 win away to West Ham between Christmas and New Year ended Leicester’s previous wobble and now they will try to do the same at home to David Moyes’ side.

The Hammers have not yet improved greatly since Moyes replaced Manuel Pellegrini as manager and they could still be facing a relegation battle this term, knowing they will be in 17th position in the table when this game kicks off.

We expect a close contest given neither team is firing on all cylinders at present and that Moyes will want to keep it tight and while it would be no great surprise if West Ham earned a point, Leicester are backed to edge it and show their fine campaign is not about to crumble.
