Predicted West Ham and Leicester line-ups: Sakho and Ulloa to start

Upton Park

Match between West Ham United and Leicester City to be played on Saturday 20th December 2014 at 15:00. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London.

West Ham United and Leicester City face off at Upton Park on Saturday with the Hammers looking to consolidate their position in the top four and the Foxes desperate to climb off the bottom of the table.

West Ham could only draw away to Sunderland last weekend but every point could prove vital for Sam Allardyce’s side as they seek to keep the likes of Southampton and Arsenal at bay for a place in Europe next season.

Leicester continue to struggle but they showed enough against Manchester City last time out to suggest they can win more points in their upcoming matches.

West Ham injury concerns: Mark Noble is recovering from a calf injury but could feature.

West Ham absences: Allardyce has no confirmed absentees at this time.

Leicester injury concerns: The Foxes have no fresh injury concerns for now.

Leicester absences: Kasper Schmeichel remains side-lined with a foot injury and will not be back in action until mid-January. Matthew Upson is also unavailable.

Predicted starting line-ups:

West Ham – Adrian, Jenkinson, Tomkins, Reid, Cresswell, Song, Nolan, Kouyate, Downing, Carroll, Sakho

Leicester – Hamer, Simpson, Wasilewski, Morgan, Konchesky, Mahrez, King, Cambiasso, Drinkwater, Vardy, Ulloa
