Venue: London Stadium (London).

It has been a rollercoaster campaign so far in the season for both West Ham United and Leicester City who are to raise the curtain on the Matchday No 13 in Premier League this Friday at London Stadium.

West Ham United

The Hammers are, however, in a much tougher position at this stage as the new boss David Moyes just bean realizing how massive the challenge ahead of him is when his new team dropped the ball to Watford last weekend at Vicarage Road Stadium.

To make things worse for the hosts, they are in for a rough schedule after the Leicester City clash and avoiding the red zone before Christmas will indeed require a serious turnaround in form.

At the moment, the main task for Moyes is to try and fix the holes at the back given that the Hammers have leaked in the league’s worst 25 goals in 12 matches, including ten in five home outings so far.

Leicester City

Unlike their counterparts, the change on the bench provoked a positive shock with the Foxes who look much better under Claude Puel than under the predecessor Craig Shakespeare.

The shocking 2015/16 champions have climbed up to 12th in the league standings and prior to Saturday’s home loss to runaway leaders Manchester City they have been undefeated since September which is a streak worth all respect.

West Ham United vs Leicester City: Head to head

Even though West Ham still lead the head to head tie by three wins, it’s the Foxes who have been the dominant force in the most recent meetings between the two likes.

Leicester City have won five and drawn one of their previous six encounters with the Hammers, including a 2-3 win on the road in mid-March this year when the two sides last locked horns.

We’d not be surprised to witness a similar scenario to the one in March this time out given Leicester’s rise in form and West Ham’s defensive struggles as of late.

The value is string in backing the Foxes to clinch the spoils here at the odds of 2.55, while backing Leicester to net two or more also looks like a decent call at the 2.37 odds.
