Competition: Premier League
Date: October 4, 2020
Kick-off time: 12:00 pm, October 4, 2020 (UK time)

Betting prediction: Leicester City 2-1 West Ham United
West Ham picked up their first league win of the campaign last weekend, and did so in emphatic fashion. However, they were brought back down to earth on Wednesday after suffering a heavy defeat to Everton.
Aside from a blip in the Carabao Cup, Leicester have looked superb this season. Their incredible victory at the Etihad last weekend is already an early contender for the result of the season, and will take some beating.
West Ham have only won one of their last 11 Premier League away games. The Hammers will be no pushovers, but Leicester can be confident of maintaining their 100% start to the Premier League season.

Leicester City vs West Ham United: Recommended bets
Over 2.5 goals. Each of the last three meetings between the sides have produced three or more goals.
Both teams to score. West Ham have netted in each of their last five matches in all competitions. Leicester have scored 12 in their last three Premier League games.
Jamie Vardy to score. Just the five goals scored so far in three appearances for Leicester’s leading marksman.
Penalty to be awarded. Leicester have already been awarded five penalties in the league this season.
Leicester City vs West Ham United: Match preview
Leicester and West Ham have met 26 times in the Premier League. West Ham have the better head to head record, winning 11, drawing six and losing nine of their matches against the Foxes. However, recent history certainly goes in Leicester’s favour. They’ve only lost one of their last 11 matches against West Ham.
Last season’s corresponding fixture, played in January this year, finished 4-1 to Leicester. Harvey Barnes, Ricardo Pereira and Ayoze Perez (2) netted for Brendan Rodgers’ side while Mark Noble scored a consolation penalty for the visitors.
Leicester City team news vs West Ham United
Leicester could revert to a back four, having played with five at the back against Man City.
Brendan Rodgers is confident that Jamie Vardy “will be fine” for Sunday. The striker has an ongoing hip issue and felt it against after scoring his hat-trick last weekend.
Jonny Evans is a doubt after being forced off with an injury at the Etihad last weekend. Evans’ absence could see James Justin move to centre-back, with Christian Fuchs starting at left-back. Daniel Amartey is another option in defence.
Dennis Praet also picked up a minor knee injury against City and is another doubt for the Foxes.
James Maddison should be fit to start following a couple of recent appearances off the bench.
Demarai Gray has recovered from illness and could take up a spot on the bench.
New loan signing Cengiz Under is still awaiting international clearance so he is unavailable for selection
Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi remain sidelined.
West Ham United team news vs Leicester City
Having made a number of changes in midweek, West Ham are likely to field a similar side to the one which thumped Wolves last weekend.
There will be one enforced change, however. Right-back Ryan Fredericks is out with a hamstring injury and could be replaced by Ben Johnson.
Curiously, West Ham made no substitutions in midweek, so the likes of Pablo Fornals, Jarred Bowen and Tomas Soucek will be well-rested.
Issa Diop and Josh Cullen are sidelined for the visitors.
