West Ham United endured a hard-fought defeat at the hands of Manchester United in their last outing in the Premier League by 2-1. They will look to put that disappointment behind them as they lock horns with Leicester City in their next outing.
The Foxes, on the other hand, will look to bounce back from their 0-1 loss against Newcastle United in their last encounter in the Premier League as they travel to the London Stadium. It would not be an easy match for either of the sides.
West Ham United have a number of injury casualties which has been the biggest drawback for them this season. The departments worst struck by this crisis are the attack and the midfield, with as many as eight players either doubtful or not being able to take any part in the next match. Andriy Yarmolenko and Carlos Sanchez, the two confirmed absentees, might be joined on the sidelines by the likes of Samir Nasri and Manuel Lanzini. Jack Wilshere might return to the starting lineup subject to an assessment of his fitness ahead of the match.
In the defence, Aaron Cresswell will also be assessed ahead of the match while Winston Reid will play no part. Marko Arnautovic would lead the attack in the absence of the likes of Lucas Perez and Javier “Hernandez” Chicharito, who are recovering from their injuries. Andy Carroll, however, is in no shape to make an appearance for the Hammers in the next match.
Lukasz Fabianski is set to start in the goal for the Hammers as he would look to make amends for the couple of goals he conceded in the last match against the Red Devils.
Centre backs Fabian Balbuena and Angelo Ogbonna also had a hard time against Man United and would look to keep the goal out of harm’s way when they take on the Foxes. Pablo Zabaleta is expected to start in the right back position while Arthur Masuaku would start as the left back.
Declan Rice is expected to put in a shift in the defensive midfielder role. Playing ahead of him would be Mark Noble and Pedro Obiang in the absence of Lanzini and Nasri in the middle of the pitch. Robert Snodgrass would have to play in his familiar role on the right side of the midfield. Felipe Anderson would put in a shift from the left-hand side of the midfield.
Marko Arnautovic is set to lead the line for the Hammers with both Perez and Chicharito expected to be out of the side with injuries.
