West Ham United vs Leicester City Preview

West Ham United vs Leicester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – London Stadium

Date: 24th November 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

West Ham’s stars did not give David Moyes the happy start that he would have wanted when they played Watford away in their last game as they fell 2-0 to the Hornets.

That game will have given the Scot a view of the enormous task ahead of him and he will be looking to get to work in bringing them out of the relegation zone sooner rather than later.

They have taken 9 points from their opening 12 games and the last time they won a game was in September when they defeated an equally struggling Swansea City.

Since that time, they have drawn two and lost three of their last 5 games.

They face Leicester City, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in the next couple of weeks and it is hard to see them escaping the drop zone before Christmas.

Leicester City also suffered a poor start to the season which led to the sacking of Craig Shakespeare but under new management, they have improved recently.

They lost their last game 2-0 against Manchester City but prior to that game, they won two and drew three.

They are currently 12th in the league table and they will not be facing opponents as tough as those that West Ham face in the next couple of weeks and they could potentially end the year inside the top ten.
