Brendan Rodgers has bad news for West Ham United ahead of the clash with his Leicester City side on Sunday.

Noble warns West Ham teammates over performance levels ahead of Leicester

West Ham face the Foxes in a televised clash on Sunday lunchtime.

Last weekend West Ham lifted the doom and gloom that has enveloped the club with a superb 4-0 win over Wolves.

That wave of positivity quickly subsided, though, when a strong Hammers side were thumped 4-1 by Everton in the Carabao Cup in midweek.



Hammers face daunting trip to early pace setters

Next up is a daunting trip to table-topping Leicester, a side West Ham have got very little change from in recent years.

Brendan Rodgers’s side have won all three games so far, scoring 12 goals in the process.

There was a potential boost for West Ham when Vardy limped off during Leicester’s 5-2 win at Manchester City last weekend.

Speculation suggested Vardy may have to sit out of the West Ham clash after he was spotted walking gingerly following his substitution.

There was also talk that key defender Jonny Evans may also miss the game against the Hammers.

Rodgers has bad news for West Ham as Vardy and Evans are passed fit

But Rodgers has delivered some bad news to West Ham fans as both Evans and Vardy have been passed fit to play.


“Vards I think will be fine,’ Rodgers told the press ahead of the game (Metro).

“He’s got this hip issue which has been ongoing. It usually settles down after a few days and he works himself back in.

“Jonny is fine. Thankfully it (his calf) was just tight, but it was more to do with playing his first game.

West Ham unchanged from Wolves bar Fredericks?

“Jamie is fine. It takes a couple of days to settle down, but he’s fine.”

West Ham should have a fully fit squad to choose from bar Ryan Fredericks. The right-back is out for a month with a low grade hamstring injury picked up against Wolves.

The side is likely to be unchanged other than Fredericks, who will be replaced by new boy Vladimir Coufal or Ben Johnson.

West Ham assistant boss Alan Irvine will take charge of West Ham again as Moyes continues to self isolate.
