Leicester City

Two defeats, apparently, not only became a “cold shower” for the Leicester footballers, but also shook their confidence in their abilities. Although, perhaps this is just a normal recession in the game, which happens at every club. One way or another, “Leicester” in the last seven fights in the Premier League won only twice.

True, these failures did not particularly affect the position of the foxes. Liverpool moved a decent distance, Manchester City took second place from Brendan Rogers team, but nothing is threatening a ticket to the Champions League. Leicester ahead of fifth Manchester United by 11 points.

In the last seven games in the Premier League, the Rogers team defeated Newcastle (3:0) and West Ham (2:1), tied with Norwich (1:1), and lost to Manchester City (1:3), Liverpool (0:4), Southampton (1:2) and Burnley (1:2).

At home, Leicester has not won three matches in the championship, losing to Liverpool, Southampton and tied with Norwich. In other King Power tournaments in the FA Cup, the foxes defeated Wigan (2:0), and in the League Cup they tied with Aston Villa (1:1).

Two players are injured at Leicester: Wilfred Ndidi and Daniel Amarty.

West Ham United

West Ham, meanwhile, began to show signs of life. The Hammers all rolled down to the relegation zone, until the leadership finally decided to fire Pellegrini. The London club played four matches with David Moyes, winning Bournemouth in the Premier League (4-0) and Gillingham in the FA Cup (2-0) in these meetings. Then West Ham lost to Sheffield (0:1) and tied with Everton (1:1).

Before meeting with Leicester, the Hammers are on the 16th line, and the departure zone is only one point ahead.

On a trip to the Premier League West Ham won two of the previous five duels. The London team beat Chelsea (1:0) and Southampton (1:0), but lost to Wolverhampton (0:2), Crystal Palace (1:2) and Sheffield (0:1) .

In the infirmary of the “Hammers” are Andrey Yarmolenko, Ryan Frederiks, Lukash Fabiansky and Jack Wilshire. The second goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez went on loan to Alaves. Now the gate of West Ham is defended by the goalkeeper of the Irish national team Darren Randolph, whom the “Hammers” returned from Middlesbrough this offseason.

The participation in the upcoming match of Felipe Anderson and Micheil Antonio is also in doubt.

Leicester City vs West Ham United Prediction

Despite some recession, Brendan Rogers wards are obliged to beat the crisis “West Ham” on their field. Of course, even if Leicester does not win, he will still remain in the top three. However, victory for the foxes is now important from a psychological point of view.

Most likely, this match will not be rich in goals. “West Ham” will not open, and “Leicester” only once in his field in the current championship won big.

Our prediction is Leicester will win
