West Ham United welcome Leicester City to the London Stadium on 24/11/17 as David Moyes looks to secure his first win as Hammers boss. West Ham were beaten 2-0 by Watford last time out, while Leicester also fell to a 2-0 defeat, their’s coming at the hands of Manchester City.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Despite the turnaround in managers, West Ham still showed signs of the same faults coming back to haunt them after their 2-0 defeat to Watford. Leicester meanwhile were unfortunate against Man City, and I’m expecting them to pick up a draw here.

West Ham United Preview

The David Moyes era began in far from perfect style away to Watford last time out, as he watched his side lose 2-0 to remain in the bottom three of the Premier League table. Will Hughes netted his first goal of the season just 11 minutes in to give the home side the lead, with Richarlison scoring doubling their advantage in the second half. The usual hope with a change of managers is that it will reap an improved performance from the team, but this first showing will not have created great optimism amongst West Ham fans that Moyes is the man to shake up this team for the better. Moyes didn’t hold back in his assessment of the team in the aftermath of the game, criticising the performance of the players whose reputations have came from playing at a higher level than they currently are showing. Currently 18th, they are just a point away from West Bromwich Albion in 17th, but now come into this game without a win in five in the league, winning just one of their last eight in total. Coming into this game off the back of two successive home defeats, defeat here would signal the first time West Ham have lost three in a row at home in the same season since October 2013. 

West Ham United Team News

Sam Byram (thigh), Jose Fonte (ankle) and Javier Hernandez (hamstring) are all missing for the Hammers. Andre Ayew (illness) and Michail Antonio (rib) will both be assessed.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester will have felt hard done by last time out, with their game with Manchester City hinging, in their opinion, on a crucial decision from the referee. Jamie Vardy was set to go through 1 v 1 with Ederson Moraes but was swiped down by City captain Vincent Kompany, who escaped with only a yellow card when it perhaps warranted a straight red. From there, City went on to win the game, as an excellent team move saw Raheem Sterling find David Silva, who in turn played a square ball to Gabriel Jesus to make it 1-0. Kevin De Bruyne then smashed the ball home from the edge of the box early in the second half, producing an unstoppable effort to give Kasper Schmeichel no chance in the Foxes’ goal. Leicester now sit 12th in the Premier League table after 12 games, coming into this game looking to end a two-game wait for a win, having also drawn with Stoke before the international break.. However, if they could pick any team in the Premier League to face when needing a win, it would probably be West Ham, having won five and drawn one of the last six meetings between the two sides in all competitions. The Foxes are also beginning to improve away from home, consistently picking up results with the team now unbeaten in four games on the road.

Leicester City Team News

Ben Chilwell (knee) could return to the matchday squad, but Robert Huth (ankle) and Matty James (achilles) are both absent.
