West Ham team news and predicted XI vs Leicester City

All the latest from David Moyes ahead of the clash with the Foxes.

West Ham United travel to the midlands to take on relegation threatened Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, knowing that their opponents will need to win to ensure that they have a chance of Premier League survival.

The Foxes sit two points behind Everton, who currently occupy the final safe spot in the Premier League. It means that, to have any chance of survival, they must beat the Hammers and hope that Sean Dyche’s side don’t manage to win their game against Bournemouth at Goodison Park.

To that end, they will face a West Ham side that will have one eye on their own ambitions, with a European final against Fiorentina coming up in 10 days time, and Moyes may be minded to rest some of his stars.

Here’s how we expect the Hammers to line up, and the latest team news from the London Stadium.

Predicted XI

Team News

David Moyes’ side have some concerns coming into the game, with the Scot giving the lowdown on his squad ahead of the clash.

‘Nayef is available for Sunday; he’s trained today. He missed out against Leeds with a dead leg he picked up in the game on Thursday at Alkmaar’, Moyes explained.

‘Emerson had a knock to his knee, and we just need to check how he is. He’s been out today, but we’ll need to see how he is’, the West Ham boss explained on Friday afternoon.

One player who will not be taking part is striker Gianluca Scamacca, who is still sidelined with a knee injury.

‘Gianluca is still recovering. He had his op about four weeks ago, and he’s still got a few weeks of rehab to do, but hopefully, he’ll be back ready at the start of pre-season’.

Flynn Downes is another that will be out, with the midfielder set to miss out through illness.
