Leicester vs West Ham
English Premier League
Date: 28 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Home wins over Manchester United and Leeds moved West Ham comfortably into the safe zone ahead of the final day fixture against Leicester at King Power Stadium.
The same can’t be said for the Foxes who are in a very complicated position going into Sunday’ season finale.
Leicester need to beat West Ham and hope that Bournemouth can leave Goodison Park undefeated to stay in the top flight next season.
The Foxes managed to hold Newcastle to a goalless draw on Monday night as Dean Smith completely oriented his formation at defending his team’s goal.
The fact that Leicester had zero attempts towards Newcastle’s goal says enough about the happenings on the pitch of St. James’ Park six days ago.
Leicester have only one win in the last 16 Premier League matches. They have allowed ten goals in total in the outings against Everton, Fulham, and Liverpool prior to the mentioned draw at Newcastle.
It will be very interesting to see how the Foxes’ back line will do here against West Ham whose manager Davis Moyes might play with his best XI in an attempt to keep the rhythm ahead of the UEFA Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina in ten days.
Leicester vs West Ham Head-to-head
- West Ham lead the head to head tie by four wins ahead of the 95th clash against the Foxes but the Hammers have a poor record at the King Power where they lost 23 and won just 11 of the last 47 encounters with Leicester.
- The outfits have a win, a draw, and a loss each in their previous three meetings. Leicester picked up a 0-2 victory when they visited London Stadium in the first half of the season.
- Leicester have scored at least two goals in four of the last five matches against the Hammers.
Leicester vs West Ham Prediction
This is now the biggest game of the season for Leicester. They will be up against the non-motivated West Ham side and we will ignore form and back the hosts to get the much-needed victory at the 1.90 odds in this case.
Alternatively, we like the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.66 odds knowing about both teams’ playing style in recent weeks.
