Leicester City: Foxes’ Predicted XI to play West Ham on Sunday

Leicester City face a key game in their pursuit of UEFA Champions League football this weekend as they travel to West Ham United.

The Foxes currently sit third in the table, with this game being an excellent opportunity for Brendan Rodgers’ men to strengthen their grip on a place in the top four.

Could the Leicester boss be tempted to make many changes from the 2-0 defeat to Manchester City last weekend?

We are expecting just two alterations for the trip to the London Stadium, both of them for tactical reasons.

Kasper Schmeichel will of course start in goal, with regular centre-backs Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana remaining in defence.

Will Leicester beat West Ham?

Of course!

Of course!

Not this time!

Not this time!

Caglar Soyuncu is still in self-isolation having tested positive for COVID-19 so will once again be replaced by Daniel Amartey.

The first alteration from Rodgers should occur at right wing-back. 31-year-old Marc Albrighton was preferred in that position last time out but the now fit Ricardo Pereira should be drafted in.

Meanwhile, Timothy Castagne will take his place on the left, with the Belgian now firmly over his injury worries.

Leicester’s midfield should once again stay the same with Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans having forged an impressive partnership throughout the campaign.

The Foxes can also welcome back James Maddison who is now “available”. The 24-year-old should come into the starting XI in place of the £16.2m-rated Ayoze Perez, who has scored just twice in the league this season.

To round off the team, Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy should once again start as an attacking pair. The latter will surely be hoping to end his recent dry run having only scored once in his last 13 Premier League games.
