Claudio Ranieri drops strong Leicester City team selection hint ahead of West Ham match

Leicester City are due to take on West Ham United in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

Claudio Ranieri has suggested at his press conference today - covered by the club's official Twitter account - that Leicester City will line-up with a similar team to the one that beat Bury in the second round of the Capital One Cup in Tuesday night's fixture against West Ham United. 

The Foxes beat Bury 4-1 in their last fixture in the cup competition, and Ranieri is keen to give the players who got the club to this stage the opportunity to impress again. 

Leicester beat League One Bury with a line-up which included a lot of fringe players, but there were a number of standout performances in the fixture. 

Joe Dodoo netted a hat-trick on his senior debut, while Andrej Kramaric also scored in what has been a rare outing for him in the senior side this season. 

If the same team is named on Tuesday, then they can expect a tougher test, with a strong Premier League side the opposition which lies in wait. 

West Ham have been in fine form over the start of the season and go into the game having beaten Manchester City in their latest outing. 

Leicester's full starting XI for their game against Bury read as follows: Schwarzer, Benalouane, Moore, Wasilewski, Fuchs, Dodoo, Inler, Hammond, Kanté, Ulloa, Kramaric.
