West Ham vs Leicester Match Preview

Leicester travel to London for their Matchday 20 clash at West Ham just days after hosting the pace-setters Liverpool for their Boxing Day clash, heading into the busy week 2nd placed with a ten-point gap to the top. They have been very confident on the road but saw their six-match winning streak ended by Man City (3-1) last week, which leaves them with a tough task to bounce.

Foxes have been in great shape in the final third and were led by in-form Jamie Vardy, who bagged 17 goals in 18 appearances and tops the goalscorers list with a comfortable gap behind him. They will now surely hope to show off and outclass the struggling rivals who sit just outside the relegation zone.

Indeed, West Ham come into the week with a 0-1 win snatched at Southampton, where a single goal from Sebastien Haller late in the first half made all the difference, and they look to build on it at Crystal Palace midway through it. Manuel Pellegrini’s men struggled to impress and this sees them in the immediate danger zone.

Hammers saw comfortable losses to Wolves (2-0) and Arsenal (1-3) beforehand, all over the place defensively and creating very few chances to find the net themselves. They have been putting on some tough challenges against the big guns beforehand and we’ll now surely see them just as motivated to cause an upset.

Still, we don’t see them holding off Leicester and we’ll now back the visitors to snatch all three points in an Away win priced at 7/10 with bet365. We’ve seen them in great shape on the road and we hope the Foxes will be able to deliver on the day as well.

We don’t really feel we’re in for a very one-sided contest, though. Leicester could be forced into an exciting contest at London Stadium and we now hope to see goals as we also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 6/10 with William Hill, which has been rated buying money by many in the know already.
