The Premier League December 28 will be the match West Ham – Leicester City – we offer our forecast

West Ham United 5-4-9

With each round, Manuel Pellegrini is getting closer to his retirement. Last round, his West Ham suffered another defeat in the London derby from Crystal Palace (1: 2), missing a decisive goal in the last minute of the match.

After this failure, the “Hammers” came close to the departure zone. The team is now on the 17th line and ahead of Aston Villa by just one point. There is still a missed meeting with Liverpool, but given the condition of the teams, Londoners are unlikely to score points in it.

The last victory “West Ham” obtained only on the road. At home, they managed to succeed only at the end of September in a duel with Manchester United (2-0), after which the Hammers managed to lose to Crystal Palace (1: 2) and Newcastle (2: 3) in their clearing , Tottenham Hotspur (2: 3) and Arsenal (1: 3).

Due to disqualification, Aaron Cresswell will miss the match. Jack Wilshere is injured. The question is Lucas Fabiansky and David Martin.

Leicester 12-3-4

“Leicester” fails the second half of December. Earlier, the “foxes” won 8 victories in 8 matches with a total score of 25: 3. But in the last 3 rounds, the statistics were pretty bad for the score 2: 8. First, the “foxes” managed to draw with the outsider of the Premier League “Norwich”.

Then came a nightmare of 2 matches in a row against Manchester City and Liverpool, which ended with a score of 1: 3 and 0: 4. In both matches, Leicester looked like a whipping boy, who was asked a powerful pressing machine. In a recent match against Liverpool at King Power, Leicester delivered just 3 hits, of which not a single hit on target.

These 2 matches indicated Leicester in his place. It is definitely not near Liverpool and Manchester City. The selection of players is too crude to deal with such powerful giants that Brendan Rogers does not even have enough tactical training. The only 2 players who did not fail these 2 matches are Jamie Vardi and Casper Schmeichel.

Now Brendan Rogers faces an important task, which will show him as an amazing anti-crisis manager or mediocre specialist who does not know how to get out of the ditch.

Prediction:

Both teams are extremely motivated for the match. West Ham is on the edge of the relegation zone. The team has a good composition, and from time to time shows a very decent game. “Leicester” in the last segment of the seasons began to run out of steam. We lost to the main competitors, lost points in the match against Norwich. We believe that the game should please with goals from both sides.

  • Leicester Will Win
  • Both teams to Score
