West Ham will welcome Leicester City to London Stadium for their Matchday 14 encounter on Saturday evening. West Ham failed to extend their run in the EFL Cup following a 10-9 defeat to Blackburn through a penalty shootout. The result highlighted the Hammers’ erratic showings in recent weeks having claimed just three wins in their last six matches across all competitions. They suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace last time out in the Premier League, making it their third defeat in their last four league games. the run has seen them drop down to 15th place in the league standings with now just two points above the relegation zone. Another setback on Saturday could therefore leave them in the bottom three, something David Moyes’ side will be desperate to avoid heading into the long World Cup break. Meanwhile, Leicester City claimed a 3-0 win over Newport County in their EFL Cup fixture last Tuesday night. The win saw them extend their resurgence having started the season really poorly. Prior to the victory, the Foxes were coming off a 2-0 away win at Everton in the Premier League, making it their third win in four league fixtures. the run has seen climb two points out of the relegation zone and they will be looking to maintain that heading into the break.
