This is West Ham's joint worst start to a season at this stage of the campaign with 2001-02, although they would go on to finish seventh that year.

After taking the West Ham reigns last week in the defeat to Watford, David Moyes became the fourth manager to manage 500 Premier League games after Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp.

West Ham have not won any of their last five Premier League matches (L3, D2).

West Ham have the worst disciplinary record in the Premier League this season with 28 yellow and two red cards being shown in their direction.

Leicester have scored the most goals of all the teams in the bottom half of the Premier League – 16.

Leicester have conceded 18 goals this season - an average of 1.5 goals against per game.

Leicester are the fourth most efficient team in the Premier League when it comes to shots vs goals - they require an average of 7.3 chances before breaching the opposition’s net.

Leicester have the third lowest average possession rate in the Premier League (43.3%).

Leicester fare even worse when it comes to pass completion, as they currently have the lowest passing accuracy in the division at just 71.2%.

Jamie Vardy is responsible for 38% of Leicester’s Premier League goals this season, the joint second highest percentage contribution of all the top 10 league goalscorers.

The two teams last met here at the London Stadium back in March 2017. It would be a game that offered up five goals with Leicester coming away with all three points thanks to an inspired performance from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.
