Paul Merson has just made his West Ham vs Leicester Premier League prediction ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.

The Hammers desperately need all three points, if we are to have any chance whatsoever of pushing for a top half finish during the second half of the season.

David Moyes is under real pressure at the London Stadium, and he is doing himself no favours whatsoever with his refusal to mix things up.

Moyes is well-renowned as a pragmatic, defensive coach. And the West Ham fans are now tired of that if truth be told.

It’s acceptable when you’re winning games but that just hasn’t been the case this season.

David Sullivan has already told Hammers News that David Moyes has his full support.

If the outcome of the West Ham vs Leicester clash isn’t a positive one for the home side though, it will be interesting to see if the board’s stance changes.

It really is a must-win tomorrow but most fans and pundits see more misery on the horizon for the Hammers…

The London Stadium needs to be absolutely rocking tomorrow afternoon, if we are to have any chance whatsoever of getting a result.

Paul Merson has told Sportskeeda how he believes the West Ham vs Leicester clash will end in disappointment for the home fans:

I’m starting to worry about West Ham now. I didn’t see Crystal Palace winning an away game, but West Ham lost to them at home. They’ve also crashed out of the cup after a defeat against Blackburn this week. West Ham should’ve pulled off a result against Manchester United, but they’ve now lost three of their last four games. Leicester have bounced back this season and should be able to win this Premier League game.

Prediction: West Ham United 1-2 Leicester City

I have to say, I would not be surprised one little bit if that’s the result come 4:45 on Saturday evening.

And if we do lose, surely Moyes’s position as West Ham boss will be untenable.

In my opinion, he has already lost the dressing room at the London Stadium. And keeping him around will only make things worse.

The Scot clearly has at least one more game to save his job though. And the West Ham vs Leicester clash may well be make or break for the Scot.

Leicester are currently in the midst of a mini-resurgence, so they will represent a real challenge for the Hammers. Tomorrow could well be judgement day for Moyes.

And Merson clearly thinks that he, and his players of course, won’t be up to the task.
