West Ham United vs Leicester City Match Preview
David Moyes will continue his quest for a first win as West Ham manager when he makes his home managerial bow against a Leicester City that is on the way up. This West Ham United vs Leicester fixture will be played at the London Stadium on Friday, November 24, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
West Ham are currently in the drop zone (18th in the Premier league table with 9 points). The Hammers have been consistently troubled with problems at the back and have already shipped a league-high 25 goals this season. 10 of those have come at home in 5 games leaving West Ham vulnerable to attacks. However, a win in the weekend will pull them out of the danger zone temporarily. But, with tough encounters waiting in the wings – Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal – the hosts can’t risk another drop of points this week. But, the signs are not good, as West Ham have last won way back in the month of September. Can Moyes find a way to break the duck?
Leicester are also under a new manager and Claude Puel has started his PL reign with mixed results (W1 D1 L1). The last weekend loss to Manchester City (2-0) was their first in the Premier League since September. During that run, they have picked up 2 wins and 3 draws. That upsurge in form pushed Leicester up the table to 12th (13 pts, w3 D4 L5) and with a win this week, the Foxes can climb up into the top-half of the table. The Foxes have a good record away from home this season and are unbeaten in their last four games away from home (W 1 D3). Can the visitors continue their good run?
