Leicester City v West Ham tips: Will Leicester return to winning ways?

| 26.10.2018

West Ham United travel to Leicester City with both teams coming off the back of two straight league defeats.

The Hammers looked to be picking up momentum after a 3-1 win over Manchester United.

But have suffered a brace of one-nil losses to Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur that has them looking over their shoulder again.

The Foxes put up a good fight against Arsenal but succumbed to the Gunners slick attacking football in the second half.

Who will come out on top? We’ve got all the odds right here…

Match Odds

Claude Puel always seems one more loss from questions about his job. But the Foxes manager has never lost three in a row as Leicester boss and his team are 11/10 to win and stop the rot.

The Irons haven’t fully hammered down an identity under Manuel Pellegrini but with Marko Arnautovic they always have shot.

West Ham are 5/2 to return to East London with three points. The draw is 23/10.

Talking Tactics

Andriy Yarmolenko looks set to be out for the remainder of the season with injury.

The Ukraine forward was beginning to forge an exciting trio with Arnautovic and fellow new signing Felipe Anderson.

Pellegrini may have a selection headache here. Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass seem an obvious choice.

But the Chilean gaffer may opt for youngster Grady Diangana, after he came off the bench against Spurs.

Puel could yet again partner Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho who caused all sorts of problems for Arsenal on Monday.

The interesting thing will be whether the Leicester boss continues with three at the back as he did at the Emirates or return to a back-four.

Goalscorer Odds

Vardy should be free of stomach cramps he suffered against Arsenal. The former England striker is 7/2 to score first.

Iheanacho to grab his second goal of the season is 11/5.

Lucas Perez could come back into the fold. The West Ham striker is 14/5 to score Anytime.

Anderson will have to step up in Yarmolenko’s absence, the former Lazio man starts at 10/3 to net.

Outside bets shows 6/1 for Harry Maguire to score Anytime.
