Leicester City vs West Ham United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leicester’s mediocre form took a turn for the worst, as the team were thrashed 5-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Marc Albrighton’s red card in the 51st minute was a decisive point in the game, but Palace were already leading 2-0 at that stage thanks to goals from Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur. A late flurry of goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Patrick van Aanholt, and Christian Benteke provided Palace with yet another big win over Leicester. West Ham were thrashed 4-1 for a second consecutive league game, as Manchester City ran out comfortable winners at the London Stadium. Leroy Sane and Pablo Zabaleta (own goal) put City in a comfortable position before Andrew Cresswell scored just before half-time to provide West Ham with hope. However, the hope was wiped out in the second half after goals from Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho.

Betting Tips and Predictions

West Ham’s last away win over Leicester was in 2012 when both clubs were in the Championship. The foxes have gone through a four-game winless streak, but their record against the hammers at King Power Stadium is quite excellent with three wins in the last four. Despite lacking a home league win since January, Leicester have the potential to capitalise on West Ham’s disastrous away form. I would back a win for Leicester City.

David Moyes has seen his team score in the last 10 Premier league matches on the road, while Leicester City have been quite poor at the back of late. This game is a great candidate to back both teams to score.

Leicester City win – 5/4

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City’s slump in form is not a surprise considering that the team had little to play for in the remaining few matches of the season. The opportunity to finish in the top half of the table remains as the sole motivation going into the last three matches. Leicester have relied heavily on goals from Jamie Vardy, whose dip in form has been a contributing factor behind the downturn in results. Manager Claude Puel needs to be extra careful against Leicester suffering another thrashing in the remaining three league matches – all against London outfits. Vardy is only three goals shy of hitting 20 league goals for the campaign.

Leicester City Team News

Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Matthew James (Achilles tendon), Vicente Iborra (hamstring), and Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Leicester due to injuries. Shinji Okazaki is a doubt with an ankle injury, while Marc Albrighton is suspended for the match.

West Ham United Preview

West Ham and David Moyes are showing signs of pressure, as the club have had a disappointing set of results coupled with internal issues. Andy Carroll has had a bust-up with manager Moyes and could be unavailable for the remaining three games. Even though the hammers have never been in the bottom three since the turn of the year, there is a strong possibility of the team being pulled back into the relegation zone due to teams like Southampton and Stoke City picking up points. The hammers are only three points ahead of the drop.

West Ham United Team News

James Collins (hamstring), Sam Byram (ankle), Winston Reid (knee), Pedro Obiang (ligament), and Michail Antonio (hamstring) are unavailable for West Ham.
