Both sides head into the match after coming off back to back wins in the Premier League last weekend. Both sides pulled off surprising wins, with Leicester thumping Manchester City and West Ham surprising Wolves.
This weekend, history could be made if the Foxes record a four-win in the league for their first time. Last weekend’s 5-2 win over Manchester City will play a massive role in boosting their confidence against the Hammers.
