Leicester City have been struggling in their recent encounters and that doesn’t bode well for them as they try to qualify once again for Europe in the coming year. Leicester will come into this game with just 1 victory in their last 9 games and know that they have to turn around their performances if they need to show what champions they are. Last time they played against Everton in front of their home fans and were beaten by Everton by a score of 2-0; which has seen them slip further to 16th spot in the table, just 3 points ahead of the relegation zone. Leicester need to make their home games count and for that they will need to find the back of the net more consistently starting with this game against West Ham.
Away from home, West Ham have been in a bad state leaking 18 goals in 9 games, while netting 14 goals in the bargain. Last time around they performed admirably winning against Swansea at home with 4-1 win which led to them winning 3 games on the trot now. West Ham have relied a lot on their attacking lineup, despite not having an out and out striker; with the likes of Payet, Antonio, Lanzini among the midfielders who have contributed to their goals. They have now scored in 9 straight games now, and will be looking to take advantage of a Leicester defense that has failed to keep a clean sheet in 11 straight games.
This game has both teams to score all over it as both teams need the victory desperately, and both have been in good scoring form as well s in leaking goals.
Both teams to score.
