Check out our Big Match Breakdown, and then find out live on BT Sport 1 from 5:30pm.
Victories in the East Midlands have been hard to come by for West Ham. Last season’s 2-0 success at the King Power was their first over the Foxes since December 2014 – a run stretching back nine games.
Mark Noble and Joao Mario scored the goals that afternoon, as the Hammers continued their ascent towards safety under David Moyes.
Leicester showed plenty of promise against Arsenal on Monday night. Claude Puel is unlikely to make too many changes as a result. Kelechi Iheanacho should continue to partner Jamie Vardy up front, with James Maddison in behind. Demarai Gray could return to the bench after a spell on the sidelines.
Manuel Pellegrini will have to shuffle his pack after the injury to Andriy Yarmolenko last week. That could mean a first start in over a month for Michail Antonio. Otherwise, it should be as you were for the Hammers, who are expected to counter Leicester’s 3-4-1-2 with a 4-2-3-1 set up.
The Foxes enjoyed plenty of success down the flanks against Arsenal. Ben Chiwell and Ricardo Pereira will be key again up against Pablo Zabaleta and Arthur Masuaku.
Noble and Declan Rice will have to be careful not to get overrun by Wilfred Ndidi and Nampalys Mendy, while Maddison will once again look to pull the strings for Vardy. Marko Arnautovic’s battle with Harry Maguire should be one to savour.
Leicester may have lost their last two but they’re 21/20 favourites to take all three points here. West Ham are 13/5 for a second away league win of the season, with the draw available at 12/5.
There are two standouts in the goalscorer market. Vardy is a 13/10 shot Anytime, with Arnautovic 19/10 to net his first goal in what will be his seventh appearance against the Foxes. Maddison is a 21/10 chance to add to his tally.
Whatever the result, we’re expecting goals. Nine of the last 12 matches between the sides have seen both teams find the back of the net. It’s 4/5 for Both Teams to Score, and 14/1 for Both Teams to Score in Both Halves.
