Reason For Leicester City vs West Ham United Predictions

  • Leicester have conceded in seven of their last eight Premier League matches.
  • West Ham have conceded in six of their last eight top flight games.
  • Both teams have scored in 12 of the last 15 meetings between Leicester and West Ham.
  • Leicester have scored 2.0 goals per home game this season, conceding 1.1 per game and scoring exactly two goals on five occasions.

Defensive issues contribute to Leicester downturn

A second half comeback from the perilously perched Burnley on Sunday saw Leicester lose 2-1 at Turf Moor, with Jamie Vardy’s missed penalty partly to blame for the disappointing result.

This was just the latest in a string of poor results for The Foxes, and with four defeats in their last six outings Brendan Rodgers will be very thankful of his teams’ comfortable cushion inside the Premier League top four. They are currently 11 points clear of 5th placed Manchester United, but they really need to find their form soon.

The ongoing injury problems to Wilfried Ndidi haven’t helped matters, but Leicester’s defence has looked far from solid for a long while now. Previously the best defensive side in the competition, Leicester have now kept just one clean sheet in their last eight top flight matches.

West Ham continue to struggle under Moyes

West Ham will be hoping to take advantage of this instability, although their own record at the back is far from perfect. They have conceded 1.54 goals per game in the Premier League and have conceded in six of their last eight Premier League away games.

This has undoubtedly contributed to their perilous position in the top flight. They are perched in 16th place, a point above the relegation zone and looking back on a run of form which has seen them win only three of their last 16 league matches.

Both teams expected to find attacking success

Both teams are suffering at the back right now, and we expect that to continue on Wednesday. Leicester have kept one clean sheet in their last five home league games and they’re facing a West Ham side that have scored in 14 of their last 15 meetings with The Foxes. Both teams have scored in 12 of these 15 meetings, and we think backing it to happen again is a good choice here.

We are expecting Leicester to return to winning ways though. West Ham have lost five of their last seven Premier League away games, and despite Leicester’s recent downturn you can’t ignore the fact that they have won seven of their last ten home league games. They have averaged exactly two goals per game at the King Power Stadium this season, scoring exactly two goals on five occasions. At the other end, they have conceded 1.1 goals per home game, making a 2-1 correct score prediction stand out as an attractive option.
