West Ham vs Leicester City Match Preview and Team News
The Hammers are looking to build on last season’s impressive sixth-placed finish but also have Europa League football to juggle alongside their domestic ambitions. David Moyes’ plans already looked to be coming unstuck in the first game at Newcastle as they twice trailed to the Magpies, but the Hammers fought back for an impressive 4-2 victory at St James’ Park. West Ham came from behind twice before ultimately prevailing 4-2 at Newcastle, playing with great confidence going forward. Aaron Cresswell, Said Benrahma, Tomas Soucek, and Michail Antonio were all on target as the Hammers silenced a big crowd at St James’ Park. The only injury doubt for West Ham is Arthur Masuaku (knee), who is unlikely to be back for Monday. Declan Rice has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jarrod Bowen is also a tremendous player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Much is expected of this guy this season, and he is the future of English football.
As for Leicester, they won the FA Cup last season but have come up just short two years in a row in the case of Champions League qualification, so a top-four finish will be Brendan Rodgers’ priority this term. Leicester followed up a 1-0 Community Shield win over Manchester City by edging out Wolves by the same scoreline at King Power Stadium. The Foxes have invested £23milliion in RB Salzburg’s frontman Patson Daka, and Kelechi Iheanacho scored the winning penalty at Wembley, but Vardy remains the main man. Leicester has some serious problems, particularly in defense. Ryan Bertrand (Covid-19), James Justin (knee), and Nampalys Mendy (groin) are sidelined, while James Maddison (back) and Timothy Castagne (head) have a chance of featuring. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
