West Ham vs Leicester team news
Angelo Ogbonna and Manuel Lanzini both recovered from injury to be involved against Newcastle, leaving Arthur Masuaku as the only absentee.
Jannik Vestergaard is expected to make his debut in defence with Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Daniel Amartey, Timothy Castagne, James Justin and Ryan Bertrand all absent, while James Maddison will face a late fitness test after suffering a back injury against Wolves.
West Ham vs Leicester preview
With so many defensive absentees, the Foxes will have been delighted to start the season with a clean sheet and three points against Wolves.
However, their under-strength backline will surely face a much sterner test against David Moyes’ men, who successfully translated their prolific pre-season form into opening-day success with that 4-2 victory over Newcastle.
Indeed, the hosts finished last season in a confident mood in front of goal, hitting the net 20 times in their final 10 league games – albeit conceding 15 times themselves and keeping just one clean sheet.
West Ham vs Leicester predictions
Considering Leicester have scored 16 goals and conceded 18 over their last 10 league fixtures, keeping just two clean sheets, even money (2.00) seems generous on both them and West Ham getting on target in their sixth meeting in a row to feature over 2.5 goals.
