The Hammers have undergone quite a transformation over the COVID period after David Moyes steered them from relegation candidates to Champions League hopefuls behind closed doors.

The West Ham project will now be unveiled to the passionate fanbase and Moyes will hope his players can continue to produce with a full stadium behind them.

Leicester won’t make it easy for the Hammers’ stars to make a good impression though, as they harbour hopes of cracking the top four once again. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.

The Foxes remarkable achievements last season (they finished third, ahead of Liverpool) feel somewhat overlooked but Brendan Rodgers won’t mind. He will continue to quietly establish Leicester among the elite to the delight of their fans.

Our prediction: West Ham v Leicester

Neither side goes into this one with total defensive stability. West Ham were initially rocked by Newcastle’s ‘gloves off’ approach while Leicester are dealing with losing Jonny Evans to injury.

Both teams will try to hit each other on the break. Michail Antonio and Jamie Vardy both notched for their respective clubs during their first appearances of the season.

This will be an eye-catching game for the neutrals between two well-coached teams on the up. Neither side will be particularly afraid of losing this one but will recognise the importance of building up those early points. This could be a great watch.

Our prediction: West Ham 2-2 Leicester (12/1 at bet365)
