Leicester starting line-up and substitutes:

The Hammers are in the midst of a woeful run of form. They currently sit in 17th spot in the table, just one point clear of the drop zone, having won just two of their last 12 league games.

The Foxes, meanwhile, aren’t in great form themselves, having taken just one point from their last three league games. They do sit in second spot in the Premier League table, however.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is under real pressure. A heavy defeat to Leicester today could spell the end of his time in charge at the London Stadium.

So he will be desperate for a win for obvious reasons.

The Foxes will pose a real test for the Hammers. Their pacy, counter attacking football could cause the hosts all sorts of problems. And West Ham will have to be on their very best form, if they are to beat Leicester.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will be desperate to bring their winless run to an end, so both teams should be going all out for the win today.
