The Hammers earned a magnificent three points away at Wolves last night.

Our attention now turns to the Foxes on Sunday. A win would put us in a truly great position with the race for the top four heating up.

The West Ham players will need to be 100 per cent on it against Leicester.

If Ogbonna is not ready to return, Moyes could be forced to once again line up with Diop, Dawson and Cresswell as his central defenders.
