The Foxes enter the weekend in third with the Hammers one place and four points below, but defeat for the hosts could see them drop to as low as seventh if other results do not go their way.

West Ham vs Leicester City Latest Odds

Only leaders Manchester City have won more Premier League games than Leicester this season and bet365 make the visitors 7/5 (2.40) to pick up their 18th victory of the term.

West Ham have been the surprise package of the 2020-21 campaign and are available at 2/1 (3.0) to close the gap on the Foxes to just a single point.

A draw would keep the race for the top four firmly wide open and that is priced at 23/10 (3.30).

West Ham vs Leicester City Team News

Angelo Ogbonna is still at least a week away from making his West Ham return, meaning he is ruled out of this one along with Declan Rice, Michail Antonio, Darren Randolph and Andriy Yarmolenko.

Caglar Soyuncu and Cengiz Under could both feature but this game comes too soon for Harvey Barnes, whilst James Justin and Wes Morgan are both long-term absentees.

West Ham vs Leicester City Preview

Leicester are only a few weeks away from banishing the bad memories of missing out on a Champions League spot last season, and victory in London would certainly go a long way to achieving that goal.

Away matches have actually been more fruitful than home fixtures for the Foxes this season and at the very least they should be amongst the goals, having scored more than once in nine of their 15 Premier League games on their travels.

Indeed, West Ham have struggled at the back in recent weeks, conceding 16 goals in their last 12 and keeping only three clean sheets in that time – albeit scoring 24 times during that span.

West Ham vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions

Over 2.5 goals pays out at a very attractive 10/11 (1.91) with bet365, having landed in five of each team’s respective last seven Premier League matches.
