THE TEAM NEWS

LEICESTER

  • Leicester suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats for just the second time this season as they were beaten by a late goal at Burnley.
  • The result could have been very different for the Foxes but Jamie Vardy had his penalty saved when the scores were level in the second half.
  • Ben Chilwell and Hamza Choudhury were left out against Burnley but the pair should return to the squad for this contest.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Mendy; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Unavailable: James (Injured), Ndidi (Injured), Amartey (Injured)

Doubtful:

WEST HAM

  • West Ham took the lead against Everton at the weekend but it lasted less than five minutes with the game ending in a stalemate.
  • The Hammers will now head on the road for the second time in the Premier League since David Moyes returned and need an improved performance.
  • Pablo Fornals did not have the best of games against the Toffees and his place on the left wing could be under threat here.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Randolph; Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Snodgrass, Rice, Noble, Pablo Fornals; Lanzini; Haller

Unavailable: Wilshere (Injured), Fredericks (Injured), Yarmolenko (Injured), Fabianski (Injured)

Doubtful: Antonio (Injured), Felipe Anderson (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Leicester will believe they did enough to beat Burnley at the weekend but were punished for not taking their chances and fell to a late defeat. They have now lost back-to-back games in the Premier League but a return to home soil against West Ham should allow them to get back to winning ways.
