The Hammers will head into the third round of the League Cup at the King Power Stadium on the back of a 2-1 victory over Manchester City away from home.

Manager Slaven Bilic has made a number of changes to the side that defeated City at the weekend.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has also made changes for this evening’s League Cup third-round tie against West Ham.

The Foxes are in great form as well and are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 12 points from six matches.
