Leicester City and West Ham United face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at King Power Stadium. When these two teams faced off in August of 2021 it was West Ham that won 4-1.
West Ham United comes into this game sitting in 4th place in the standings having picked up 40 points. West Ham is having a big season and they have dreams of moving up even farther in the rankings. In the last game against Watford, Jarrod Bowen scored a goal in the 68th minute, and that led to the 1-0 victory. West Ham has scored 42 goals total while their defense has given up 31 goals total. Michail Antonio has been the top player for West Ham scoring eight goals and adding six assists. Jarrod Brown has also scored seven goals and added seven assists. In this game, West Ham needs to attack the weak defense of Leicester City.
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who sits in 13th place in the standings having picked up 26 points. This is a Leicester City team that has been banged up a lot this season, and it has led to some major struggles. In the last game against Liverpool, Leicester City only had one shot on goal and that led to the 2-0 defeat. Leicester City has scored 34 goals total while their defense has given up 39 goals total. Jamie Vardy has been the top player this year scoring nine goals, but he is out for this game. James Maddison has also been a key scorer, scoring six goals and adding three assists.
West Ham United is going to attack this terrible Leicester City defense, and that is going to be the difference in this game. I expect West Ham is going to score at least two goals, and that will be the difference. Back West Ham on the money line.
