There will be a fascinating game in the Premier League this weekend, as two of the top four in the league will be going head to head. But, will West Ham be able to improve their chances of an unlikely finish in the Champions League places?
Premier League Preview
David Moyes has tried to play down West Ham’s chances of finishing in a Champions League position throughout the second half of the season. But, it is fairly difficult to do that now, given that the Hammers are sitting in fourth with eight games of the season remaining. This is one of the biggest tests that West Ham have remaining this term, and they will be searching for a first league double over Leicester for the first time since the 1999-00 season. West Ham will be boosted with home advantage for the fixture, as they have picked up 28 points from the games played at the London Stadium this term. Only Manchester City can boast a better home record this term. West Ham moved back into fourth with a win against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last fixture.
Leicester will be looking to get back to winning ways after being beaten by Manchester City last time out. They will be boosted by the fact that they are one of just six teams that are yet to taste defeat at the London Stadium since it opened. The Foxes are sitting in third position in the league, but defeat this weekend could see West Ham close to within a point, while Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool could also narrow the gap. Leicester have won just twice in their previous five, while they have also suffered two defeats during the same run of form.
