Leicester City hosts West Ham United in round 25 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, February 13th at King Power Stadium (Leicester)
In the last round, Leicester City faced Liverpool and was defeated with a score of 2-0. The Foxes keep failing. They have already dropped to 12th place in the standings. After 21 games, they have 26 points in their assets. Yes, the Blues still have three games in hand. But even if they manage to earn a maximum in them, they still won’t be able to rise above the 8th position. Even the native stands are not particularly helping the Foxes in the current season, which is confirmed by the statistics of home performances in the Premier League: five victories, two draws, and four defeats with a goal difference of 19-16. It is noteworthy that Leicester City managed to keep a clean sheet in only two home games.

West Ham was stronger than Watford in the last round (1-0). The Hammers broke a streak of two defeats and returned to fourth place in the Premier League standings. After 24 rounds, they have 40 points in their assets, but the gap from the 5th and 6th positions is only one point. The Irons are still among the top four teams in terms of away results: six victories, two draws, and four defeats with a goal difference of 19-13. West Ham is not only in the Champions League zone. It is also among the four most productive teams in the championship, with 42 goals scored in 24 rounds. At the same time, the Hammers conceded 31 goals. On average, three goals are scored in one game with their participation.
In the first round, West Ham had no problems in the home game against Leicester (4-1). Moreover, three last head-to-head matches in the Premier League ended with the victories of the Hammers. Leicester is capable of beating West Ham at home. But I’m afraid it won’t happen now. Moyes’s men are simply stronger and more balanced, and they are serious about getting into the Champions League zone. Moreover, the Hammers perform very well on foreign pitches. They earned 20 points and scored 19 goals in 12 away matches. Leicester scores a lot at home (19 goals). But at the same time, the results of the team are not impressive (five victories in 11 games). I think the visitors will manage to gain at least a draw.
