THE TEAM NEWS

WEST HAM

  • West Ham's loss to Palace on Boxing Day has plunged them even closer to the relegation zone and they now sit perilously close to danger.
  • Boss Manuel Pellegrini will make changes to the starting line-up as Cresswell is suspended while Fredericks returns from his own ban.
  • They were boosted by the return for Lanzini on Boxing Day while Pellegrini is hoping Fabianski could be passed fit to return in goal.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Roberto; Fredericks, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Masuaku; Snodgrass, Noble, Rice, Pablo Fornals; Antonio, Haller

Unavailable: Cresswell (Suspended)

Doubtful: Fabianski (Injured), Martin (Injured), Wilshere (Injured), Reid (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester are going through their worst form of the season as they have picked up just one point from their last three games in the league.
  • Manager Brendan Rodgers will consider changes from the team that was hammered 0-4 at home by Liverpool on Boxing Day to spark a reaction.
  • Both Albrighton and Ayoze Perez are expected to feature here while Rodgers may even contemplate bringing Morgan, Gray and Iheanacho in.

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

Unavailable: James (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

West Ham remain wildly unpredictable but they are facing a Leicester side that will be spurred on after two heavy losses to Man City and Liverpool. The Hammers are in desperation mode right now and that should lead to a relatively open game where goals at both ends are highly likely.
