Confirmed: Leicester City v West Ham United lineups

Leicester City

Leicester City and West Ham United will face each other in the Premier League this afternoon.

Leicester City will be looking to maintain their good run of form in the Premier League this afternoon when they take on West Ham United at home.

The Foxes will head into the game against West Ham at the King Power Stadium on the back of a 2-0 victory over Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light.

Claudio Ranieri’s side are at the top of the league table at the moment with 72 points from 33 matches.

Leicester are seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, and one suspects that they will be keen on increasing their lead to 10 with victory over West Ham this afternoon.

West Ham currently find themselves sixth in the Premier League and still have a chance of finishing in the top four.

The Hammers’ recent results have not been great, but their performances have been encouraging.

Slaven Bilic’s side have the quality to pick up a win at the King Power Stadium, but it will not be easy for the London outfit.
