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: Match preview

Leicester City host West Ham United at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
Leicester begin the weekend on top of the table as one of three teams to win three out of three matches. Liverpool and Everton have also won three each but Leicester have a superior goal difference of +8.
Leicester ran riot at the Etihad last weekend, beating Manchester City 6-2. Leicester actually conceded first but were level when Jamie Vardy converted the first of three penalties Leicester were awarded. Vardy completed his hat-trick before the hour mark, before further goals from James Maddison – the pick of the bunch – and Youri Tielemans.
West Ham surprised a few people with their 4-0 win over Wolves at the London Stadium last weekend. Jarred Bowen was heavily involved, scoring the Hammers’ first two goals. Substitute Sebastien Haller also netted late on.
The Hammers couldn’t maintain their winning momentum as they were beaten 4-1 at Everton in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

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.
