West Ham look for a win over Leicester that would consolidate their position in fourth, the hammers and their fans can be genuinely excited about the propect of competing for champions league football. Sam Allardyce has always taken some heat over his tactics and style of football but I have to say i have been genuinely enjoying watching West Ham this season, they are a good mix of direct football and exciting counter attacking football. Andy Carroll seems to have found his mojo again and with Sakho and Amalfitano there is genuine quality throughout this squad. Look for West Ham to build on their already impressive season when they face a Leicester team that have lost eight of nine.
While Leicester have as previously mentioned lost eight of nine, they have not been that bad. Their struggles up front is what has cost them. Last weekend against Manchester City they were genuinely unlucky to lose the game 1-0 but you have to take your chances in this league if you dont you will be punished. Ulloa after a great start to the season has only scored one in his last nine. With Schmeichel also injured things are just not going well for Nigel Pearson's side. This one is an interesting game though as Leicester will think that they can get something from this one.
Have to take West Ham here, as unlucky as i feel that Leicester genuinely have been West Ham have been impressive at home and at 2/3 there is some value in taking the hammers here. I think given their impressive displays you could also chance a little on West Ham -1 on the handicap.
