West Ham vs Leicester preview & prediction

Match preview

As West Ham host Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday, two Premier League teams with different results in the EFL Cup will meet at the London Stadium.

West Ham’s form has deteriorated in recent weeks, with back-to-back Premier League losses to Manchester United and Crystal Palace before a disappointing EFL Cup third-round elimination to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday by penalty shootout.

Indeed, Moyes is starting to come under pressure in east London, but West Ham insist they have their whole heart behind the Scotsman, who returns to the Premier League in his final game before the World Cup break on Saturday.

West Ham earned only one victory in their last five Premier League games, putting them in 14th place with Leicester City and level on points with each other.

Before losing to Crystal Palace last weekend, the Hammers had won six straight matches at the London Stadium. They have also won three of their last four encounters with the Foxes. Saturday’s match against Leicester City looks promising for Moyes and his team due to these recent results.

Leicester’s seemingly routine victory over League Two outfit Newport County at King Power Stadium on Tuesday night allowed them to successfully avoid the EFL Cup’s fourth-round exit.

Leicester will look to finish high before the start of the six-week World Cup break but Saturday’s success could prove difficult as they have won just two of their last 10 meetings against West Ham and lost the last two visits to London. 

However, the Foxes – who won 2-0 against Everton last weekend thanks to a superb goal from Youri Tielemans and a gentle shot from Harvey Barnes – could climb to 11th place with a win against the Hammers.
