Reason For Leicester vs West Ham Betting Tips

  • Leicester won each of their first three Premier League games of the new season.
  • The Foxes scored an impressive 12 goals in those three victories.
  • Leicester beat West Ham 4-1 when the teams last played in January.
  • West Ham won just one of their last 11 Premier League away matches.

Leicester’s stunning start

Brendan Rodgers’ flying Foxes made the most of their early-season momentum last weekend when they roared to a stunning 5-2 win against a shellshocked Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

A hattrick from the razor-sharp Jamie Vardy helped City on their way, while late efforts from a close to full fitness James Maddison and Youri Teilemans added gloss to a sensational final scoreline in Manchester.

Following their blistering start to the campaign, Leicester start the weekend as Premier League leaders and the highest scorers in the division with 12 goals, and the Foxes will expect to prolong their early surge at West Ham’s expense when the Irons visit the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

West Ham upset the odds

West Ham meanwhile, produced one of the week’s most surprising results last Sunday when the battered Wolves 4-0 at the London Stadium thanks to a dominant, clinical performance that few saw coming.

The Irons had been turned over in each of their first two Premier League matches of the new season by Newcastle and Arsenal before their unexpected rout of Wanderers, though West Ham’s subsequent 4-1 Carabao Cup mauling at Everton in mid-week suggests their inspirational win against Wolves might have been an anomaly.

To stand any chance of taking something from their meeting with Leicester on Sunday, West Ham must first reverse a dreadful away record that reads just one win in 11 Premier League attempts on the road since Boxing Day.

Leicester to power past West Ham

West Ham have become synonymous with poor away performances in 2020, and one of their eight defeats in 11 league matches on their travels saw them pulverised 4-1 by Leicester at the King Power Stadium on January 22.

That mauling allowed City to complete the double over the Irons for 2019/20, while the Foxes were bested just once in 12 competitive meetings with West Ham overall since 2015.

With players like Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans in breath taking individual form and key creator James Maddison ready to return to the Leicester XI, Brendan Rodgers’ team are playing with a potent mix of self-belief and attacking verve at the moment – as evidenced by their return of 12 goals from three Premier League fixtures this season.

With so much momentum to harness, we think an on-fire Leicester are worth backing at -1.0 on Sunday against a West Ham team that come unstuck all too often outside the capital, while our correct score prediction tips the Foxes to maintain their healthy goals per game average with a 3-1 triumph.

Anytime goalscorer prediction: Jamie Vardy

While our tip borders on the unimaginative, there is still plenty of value to be had in backing Jamie Vardy in the anytime goalscorer market on Sunday.

The veteran poacher has been devastatingly good in the opening weeks of the campaign, and Vardy’s confidence should be peaking following his three-goal showing against Man City.

Leicester City injuries and team news

Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Filip Benkovic are all ruled out for Leicester, while Dennis Praet, Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans are all nursing slight knocks ahead of Sunday’s game.

New signing Cengiz Under is still awaiting international clearance and is unlikely to be available until after the interntional break, while imminent arrival Wesley Fofana won’t feature even if he completes his move before Sunday.

West Ham injuries and team news

Ryan Fredericks is West Ham’s only major injury worry ahead of Sunday, and David Moyes will likely keep faith with most of the same XI that performed so well against Wolves last time out.
