Lord Sugar has a message for West Ham ahead of Leicester clash

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

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has taken to social networking site Twitter to urge West Ham United to win against Leicester City away from home on Sunday afternoon.

West Ham will take on Leicester at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League in a few hours’ time.

The Foxes are the current league leaders and will be expected by many to pick up all three points from the encounter.

The Hammers, who are still in the hunt for a top-four finish in the table this campaign, will head into the game against Claudio Ranieri’s side on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at the Boleyn Ground in the FA Cup quarter-final tie.

Lord Sugar has sent a message to West Ham co-chairman David Gold, Jack Sullivan - son of co-chairman David Sullivan - and vice-chairman Karren Brady ahead of the match on Twitter.

The former Tottenham chairman wants the Hammers to win against Foxes, probably so that Spurs can close the gap on the leaders.

Tottenham are seven points behind Leicester in second place in the Premier League table at the moment and will take on Stoke City away from home at the Britannia Stadium on Monday evening.
