West Ham United vs Leicester City: Match preview
West Ham United kick-started the new campaign with an enthralling 4-2 win over Newcastle United.
The Hammers were forced to come from behind twice to take all three points, and ended up winning comfortably.
David Moyes’ side produced a strong season last term, as they secured 6th spot to book their place in the Europa League.
Now, they face their first major test of the new season, as they welcome Leicester City to the London Stadium.
Two of West Ham’s strongest performers from last season, Michail Antonio and Tomas Soucek, both started the season by getting their names on the score sheet.
The East London club will still be hopeful of adding to their squad following a summer transfer window which sees them yet to sign an outfield player.
Leicester also started the season with a win, as they beat Wolves 1-0 at home.
The Foxes were made to work for the result, as the visitors managed to create a hatful of chances at the King Power Stadium.
However, it was Jamie Vardy’s first-half strike that proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Brendan Rodgers’ outfit have enjoyed a successful transfer window yet again, bringing in the likes of Patson Daka, Boubakary Soumare and Jannik Vestergaard.
