Tip Reasoning

  • Leicester have lost three of their last four games
  • West Ham have won six of their seven visits to bottom-half teams
  • The Hammers have won their last three meetings with Leicester

Leicester’s slide continues

Leicester were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool on Thursday night, their third defeat in four games. That loss came only days after a 4-1 humiliation at Nottingham Forest, which left manager Brendan Rodgers furious at his players.

The Northern Irishman questioned the future of this squad, which has slipped from top four contenders to 12th place this term. The Foxes continue to struggle and their recent form could see them drop even further down the table.

Are Hammers on the up?

West Ham claimed a 1-0 win over Watford in midweek, a result which ended a tough spell for them. They had gone three games without a win – not including the extra-time success over Kidderminster.

However, that victory was the Hammers’ fourth in six league games and it has kept them in fourth place. Their Champions League push has been helped by some good results on the road, as the Hammers boast the fourth-best away record in the division. That includes a return of six wins from seven trips to bottom-half sides.

Moyes’ men to prey on Leicester mess

Leicester have lost six of their seven clashes with the top five this term, including three defeats from four at home. Another thing which counts against the Foxes in that they’ve lost each of their last three meetings with West Ham.

The Hammers are visiting the King Power at the perfect time with Leicester going through an awful run. With form and head-to-head record pointing towards an away win, go with the value available on West Ham to win this clash. Neither side look solid defensively, so a 2-1 away win is my correct score prediction.

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel; Pereira, Amartey, Thomas; Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall; Albrighton, Maddison, Lookman; Daka

West Ham predicted lineup: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Lanzini, Benrahma; Antonio
