West Ham United will welcome Leicester City at the London Stadium this Saturday afternoon as they look to secure a victory at home in the Premier League. The Hammers suffered a defeat via penalties in their midweek EFL Cup game versus Blackburn Rovers. Hence, they would be fully focused on bouncing back in domestic football by securing maximum points against the Foxes this weekend.
David Moyes will set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to revert to his best first XI for this game. Gianluca Scamacca will spearhead the West Ham attack in the final third while Michail Antonio makes way for him and drops to the bench.
4-2-3-1 West Ham United Predicted Lineup To Face Leicester City
Lukasz Fabiański will function in goal for the Hammers as he looks to secure a clean sheet this weekend. Kurt Zouma will get a chance to impress alongside Craig Dawson at the centre of the West Ham backline as they look to keep things solid at the back during the game.
Thilo Kehrer could once again fill in at right-back while Aaron Cresswell looks to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the freedom to get forward and express themselves in the final third.
Ben Johnson and Angelo Ogbonna will be named on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive positions.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will assume the duties of the holding midfielders as they try to make life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park.
Said Benrahma will get a chance to impress as the left-sided wide player while Jarrod Bowen looks to put his pace to good use on the right flank. Lucas Paqueta will play in the number ten position as he looks to engineer some inviting chances for his teammates in the final third.
Pablo Fornals and Flynn Downes will be named on the bench as they await their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if Moyes opts to call upon his services.
Gianluca Scamacca will spearhead the West Ham attack up top. The Italy international will carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the East London club on the attacking end of the field.
As mentioned earlier, Michail Antonio will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if needed.
