Hopefully Brendan Rodgers and his Leicester team can built on their great run at present in this next fixture vs. West Ham. Two good wins vs. Everton and Newport makes positives as the season looks to have changed in fortune for Leicester.

Sadly James Justin picked up a serious injury in the Carabao Cup win vs. Newport, but this could give England U.21 international Luke Thomas a chance to shine and convince Brendan Rodgers that he can be trusted to play a part at the left.

Leicester are hopefully able to bring points to the bag this evening as they can climb out of any talk of relegation and work their way up the ladder and get into the correct frame before the World Cup break, would be fantastic.

West Ham have been winners of the FA Cup three times (1964, 1975 and 1980) and runners-up twice (1923 and 2006). The club have reached two major European finals, winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1965 and finishing runners-up in the same competition in 1976. West Ham also won the Intertoto Cup in 1999.
