Brendan Rodgers has been waxing lyrical about West Ham United and the job being done by David Moyes ahead of Leicester’s visit to the London Stadium on Monday night.

Rodgers is quite rightly held in high regard for the job he is doing at Leicester and Moyes has been winning similar plaudits at West Ham.

There was little between the two sides last season as Leicester finished fifth and West Ham sixth – both qualifying for the Europa League in the process.

And going into Monday night’s clash of the Premier League’s Europa League representatives, Rodgers has lavished praise on West Ham, Moyes and in particular the Hammers’ fantastic four.

“You always want to sustain the success that he’s (Moyes) created,” Rodgers told the press ahead of the game.

“He’s gone in there and taken players out and brought players in. You can see the work ethic and quality in the team. They have quality in abundance, but we do too. It should be a fantastic game.

“They’re a very good side. David has done a fantastic job. The front four have big talent. Michail is big, strong, has technical talent and wants to score goals.

“The boys around him, Bowen and Fornals want to get in the box, and Rice is a top player who wins the ball. We know we have to be at our best to get a result.”
