The Premier League’s two stand-out teams collide in east London on Sunday as West Ham host fellow high-fliers Leicester.


The Hammers began the weekend fourth in the table and have just eight Premier League fixtures to secure Champions League football for next season – a feat few fans would have believed possible just three months ago.

Leicester, meanwhile, are battling Manchester United for second spot in the table but defeat to leaders Manchester City last time out means they are in danger of being caught by the Hammers and Chelsea.

West Ham sensationally beat Leicester 3-0 at the King Power earlier this season and Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers will be wary of them suffering a similar fate here.

David Moyes, meanwhile, has perfected his brand of contained football with quick-fire attacks and the likes of Tomas Soucek and Jesse Lingard could cause havoc. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch West Ham v Leicester on TV and online.

West Ham v Leicester team news

West Ham: Michail Antonio is the big injury worry for West Ham and there is concern he could miss this tie with a hamstring problem.

However, both Lingard and Soucek are expected to be fit for Sunday. Moyes is without Declan Rice, Darren Randolph and Andriy Yarmolenko, while this game likely comes a week too soon for Angelo Ogbonna.

Leicester: James Maddison played 18 minutes as a substitute against Manchester City last weekend and could step up to start here.

However, Harvey Barnes is still out until May, while Rodgers is waiting on updates on Caglar Soyuncu and Cengiz Under.

Our prediction: West Ham v Leicester

The loss of Antonio could greatly impact on West Ham’s attacking threat here but Lingard will hope to inspire their attack even without the main man. West Ham’s core of Soucek and Mark Noble has worked wonders this spring, and it will be the job of Wilfred Ndidi to combat it.

Leicester have plenty of attacking threat in Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho and Youri Tielemans – but can they break down a resolute Hammers defence?

This game will be won and lost in the midfield, while a draw is certainly not out of the question.

Our prediction: West Ham 2-2 Leicester (14/1 at bet365)
