Leicester will take on West Ham at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
“Regular readers will know how much that I want Leicester to seal the deal and go on to win the league,” Owen wrote on Colossusbets.com. “And you can’t argue with the way they have gone about closing out the title race, with narrow wins and clean sheets.
“Or can you? One thing is for sure and that is in West Ham they meet a dangerous side with goals in them. This could be the start of a late title twist as I take this game to end 1-1, though of course the Hammers were in action in the FA Cup on Wednesday night and how they react to that 2-1 defeat will clearly be crucial here.”
Former Liverpool and Newcastle United winger John Barnes has predicted the exact same scoreline (1-1) in the match between Leicester and West Ham.
“Leicester chasing the title may be the talking point, but West Ham themselves have the top four to play for and really need a win to keep that fight alive,” Barnes wrote on Titanbet.co.uk. “I think both sides will cancel each other out. Goalscorers – Jamie Vardy and Andy Carroll.”
Leicester are going strong in the Premier League at the moment, and playing at home is going to give them an advantage.
The Foxes will head into the match against West Ham as favourites, and they should be able to pick up all three points.
The Hammers’ recent results have been disappointing, but their performances have not been bad.
Slaven Bilic’s side still have a chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League, and they are going to make it tough for Leicester.
Leicester are seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table at the moment, while West Ham are currently sixth in the standings.
