Predicted Leicester City line-up to face West Ham in the Premier League

Leicester City were comfortably beaten by Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend. The Foxes now come up against West Ham United at the King Power Stadium. Claude Puel’s men have looked impressive under the manager and can cause all sorts of problems for the Hammers.

West Ham United have made a mixed start to their season and failed to maintain any sort of consistency this season. Pellegrini will definitely be wary of a number of potent threats in this game.

Team News

Vardy is fit to face the Hammers after some slight illness issues. Demarai Gray is still out and will not be available.

Probable Leicester City XI

Manager: Claude Puel

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Kasper Schmeichel (GK)

The Dane has been excellent in goal for the Foxes. He will definitely keep his place for this game.

Kasper Schmeichel

Daniel Amartey (RB)

The right-back has impressed after being handed an extensive role in the squad under Puel this season.

Harry Maguire (CB)

Leicester’s leader and commander at the back will aim to keep the Hammers at bay in this game.

Jonny Evans (CB)

With Morgan out, Evans should take his place once again and partner Maguire at the back.

Ben Chilwell (LB)

Chilwell was superb against Arsenal last weekend and there’s no doubt he’ll be a major factor in this game as well.

Ben Chilwell

Nampalys Mendy (RCM)

Mendy looked off the pace against the Gunners and needs to turn up for this fixture.

Wilfred Ndidi (LCM)

Ndidi’s defensive presence and work rate needs to be on point against the Hammers.

Ricardo Pereira (RAM)

The new signing has flourished after being handed an advanced role under Puel this season.

James Maddison (CAM)

No Leicester player has created as many chances or made as many assists as Maddison this season. He will sit behind the striker and dictate the play.

Kelechi Iheanacho (LAM)

The Nigerian should continue on the left-hand side of the attacking midfield.
