West Ham v Leicester predicted lineups and match preview

West Ham host Leicester City this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 15th August 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London

Odds: West Ham 6/5, Draw 12/5, Leicester 23/10

West Ham play their first game at Upton Park this season as they host Leicester City on Saturday.

The Hammers are coming off a stunning 2-0 win over Arsenal last weekend, as new manager Slaven Bilic opened the campaign in style.

Goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate handed Bilic all three points at the Emirates Stadium, but the big talking point from the game was the display of Reece Oxford in defensive midfield.

The 16-year-old was exceptional against Arsenal, and could keep his place in the West Ham team to face Leicester this weekend, whilst Carl Jenkinson may return at right back in place of James Tomkins.

Leicester City also opened their season in convincing fashion, thrashing Sunderland 4-2 last weekend.

Claudio Ranieri may be known as the tinkerman, but he is expected to keep the same side that hammered the Black Cats.

New signing N'Golo Kante may push Danny Drinkwater and Andy King for a starting place, whilst Jamie Vardy should keep him place despite a controversial week for the forward.
