West Ham v Leicester Prediction - Preview

West Ham United FC

West Ham United has managed to grab 9th in the table after an impressive domination of Newcastle United (4-2). Callum Wilson scored in the fifth minute to give the Magpies the lead, but Aaron Cresswell answered with a low strike that hit the net at 18 minutes in. Jacob Murphy retook the lead for Newcastle five minutes before half-time.  The Hammers levelled once again eight minutes after resumption of play when Said Benrahma headed in Michail Antonio’s cross. West Ham then claimed the game with two more goals, as Tomas Soucek converted the rebound on Antonio’s saved penalty at the 63rd minute, and Antonio himself scored on Benrahma’s assist three minutes later. Manager David Moyes hailed his players as they came back with a strong effort after falling behind in the first half. Now they are up for a challenge as they face last season’s FA Cup and Community Shield winners, who are looking to improve on their record from the past campaign.

  • West Ham are looking for a third straight Premier League win against Leicester, something they achieved when they beat them four times in a row between November 1994 and April 1997.
  • The Hammers won 10 home EPL games in 2020/21, their highest in a top-flight season since 2001/02 when they won 12. They have, however, lost their first home league match in each of their last three seasons.

Leicester City FC

Leicester City are just two spots behind West Ham on the table after only one game. They needed only one goal to put away Wolverhampton (1-0) when they faced off at King Power Stadium. The Foxes were in control of possession in the first half, but Wolves’ Adama Traore almost put his side in the lead with a wide shot through on goal. Jamie Vardy instead provided the breakthrough four minutes before half-time, as he flicked in Ricardo Pereira’s right-wing cross. Kasper Schmeichel then picked up a clean sheet by making crucial saves on shots from Trincao and Max Kliman. Manager Brendan Rodgers praised the hard-earned win, and most notably Jamie Vardy for his “fitness, hunger and form” for Leicester. While still missing key player such as Wesley Fofana, Timothy Castagne and Jonny Evans in the lineup, they now take on the Hammers, who are riding on the momentum of their past win.

  • Leicester have kept a clean sheet in only 11% of their EPL matches against West Ham; the only percentage lower than is in matches against Manchester United (7%).
  • Kelechi Iheanacho has been linked to four goals in his last four EPL games against West Ham, with 3 goals and 1 assist.

West Ham v Leicester Prediction - Final Thoughts

This is looking to be a tough match, as both sides have had strong starts to the season. West Ham will enjoy home-turf advantage, as well as a healthy lineup, with only Arthur Masuaku unavailable for the match as of this writing. However, Leicester’s core from the FA Cup-winning and top-five placing side from last season is still intact. Vardy and company also made a strong statement with the Community Shield victory that they are hungry for a Champions League slot. If this doesn’t end up in a draw, we pick Leicester to prevail. Let’s take a look at our predictions.
