Leicester vs West Ham English Premier League Prediction 5th May 2018

Leicester City vs West Ham United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).

West Ham United conceded four goals in each if back-to-back losses to Arsenal and Manchester City in two previous Premier League matches. The negative streak still sees their top flight ambitions being in jeopardize, but the Hammers should finally get a chance to arrest the mentioned slump in form as they are to ply the struggling and non-motivated Leicester City side on Saturday afternoon.

The Foxes shipped as many as five goals in a humiliating defeat to Crystal Palace away at Selhurst Park last time out. Claude Puel’s men are now winless in four league games, three of which they lost. Right-back Mark Albrighton will not be eligible to play against the Hammers here, following the fact he was sent off in the disaster in the capital.

Leicester City vs West Ham: Head-to-head

West Ham United lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of their 85th encounter with the Foxes.

Both teams scored in six of last seven H2H affairs.

This term’s clash from mid-November last year saw a 1-1 draw at London Stadium.

Leicester City won two and drew one of last three matches against West Ham United.

Leicester City vs West Ham: Prediction

Whilst the Foxes are on a safe distance from the relegation zone in spite of the horrific thread of results, West Ham United are yet to secure the new season in the elite class of the English football. The Hammers sit 15tth, just three points above Southampton in the danger area, and a result at King Power would be of a massive significance for them given Moyes’ men are to play Manchester United and Everton in the last two rounds of the season.

Knowing that Leicester City are on a poor run of three losses and a draw in last four league games and that they will head into this on the back of a demolishing 5.0 defeat to Crystal Palace, we have to try with the away win at the sky-high 3.20 odds here.

Backing goals at both ends is also a wise call as both teams were very easy to break down in the last couple of fixtures. Additionally, six of last seven H2H encounters also saw both teams on the scoreline which is why we have to take the 1.70 odds offered for the BTTS pick.
