Leicester City

Leicester City will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome David Moyes and West Ham to the King Power Stadium this Sunday.

The Foxes have had a terrible week, first crashing out of the FA Cup against lowly Nottingham Forest before losing two-nil to Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday. 

In a largely one-sided game against Jurgen Klopp’s men, Leicester had Kasper Schmeichel to thank for keeping the scoreline respectable. 

The Dane was the best player in a blue shirt as he pulled out several world-class saves to deny Salah, Luis Diaz, Trent Arnold-Alexander and others. But despite his best efforts, Diogo Jota still found a way past him with two scruffy yet vital goals.  

The loss means they come into this fixture sitting outside of the top ten (12th position). They have won just four points from the last available 15. By this time last season, they were still firmly in the top four race as they were sitting in third. 

Given their current league position, their aim for this season will be to finish as close to the European spots as possible. 

Possible Leicester starting line-up

Kasper Schmeichel; James Justin, Daniel Amartey, Caglar Soyuncu, Luke Thomas, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, James Maddison; Harvey Barnes, Ademola Lookman, Patson Daka.

Injured: Ryan Bertrand, Timothy Castagne, Johnny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Jamie Vardy

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None 

West Ham United

West Ham play away at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening. They continue their quest to fill the Premier League power bloc left vacant by Manchester United and Arsenal

The Hammers have had an impressive season so far, almost always remaining perpetually in the top four all season.

David Moyes’ men have recorded some impressive wins this season, beating the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea, which was made more famous by Arthur Masuaku’s goal to win it at the death for the Hammers.

Such grit has been the highlight of West Ham’s season so far, as they always seem to leave it late to make an impact on the game. 

They will be rearing to make it three wins in a row with a win against the Foxes and, in doing so, remain in the Champions League conversation. They have played two more games than their fellow top-four challengers Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United, though, and so will be desperate to keep winning to keep their chances of a top-four finish high. 

Possible West Ham starting line-up

Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Craig Dawson, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell; Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek; Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma; Michail Antonio.

Injured: Arthur Masuaku, Angelo Ogbonna

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None
