The two sides meet in a top of the table clash on Sunday afternoon.

West Ham United joint chairman David Gold is confident his side can beat Leicester City this weekend, he has told the club’s official website.

The Hammers travel to the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon looking to make a return to winning ways in the hunt for the top four.

Recent weeks have seen the Hammers pick up several draws, as well as being knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United in what has been a series of disappointing results for them.

Nonetheless, Gold is confident his team can secure a win against the current league leaders and avenge their defeat earlier in the campaign.

“I know Slaven and the players will be doing everything they can to beat the Premier League leaders on Sunday,” he told whufc.com.

“When we got beat 2-1 by Leicester at the start of the season it was a big shock to everyone. We need to get some revenge when we go to the King Power Stadium and beat them!

“If it wasn't for Leicester I am sure we would be up there for team of the season! There are still lots of points to play for and the European dream is still alive.”

The race for the top four certainly is not over yet for the Hammers although it is looking unlikely they will make it in.

Unfortunately for them Manchester City have found their best form in recent weeks, and have managed to open a considerable gap over Slaven Bilic’s side.

They currently sit eight points clear, but if West Ham can secure a win on Sunday that will be down to five. And with a whole number of points left to secure, that means the top four race is far from over.
