West Ham United managed to kick start the new season with an impressive 4-2 win over Newcastle United.

The Hammers came from behind twice to claim all three points at St James’ Park.

David Moyes’ side will be looking to build upon last season’s impressive campaign, which saw them finish 6th in the Premier League.

Leicester City also started the new season with a win, as they edged past Wolves.

The Foxes were made to work for the three points, but Jamie Vardy’s first-half strike proved to be the difference.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have looked impressive against both Man City and Wolves over the last couple of weeks, and should have just enough quality to defeat David Moyes’ men on Monday.

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.
