Reason For West Ham vs Leicester Betting Tips

  • West Ham have lost four of their last five home games in the Premier League, with both teams scoring in each of them.
  • Leicester have won four of their last five away games in the top flight.
  • Leicester have conceded in six of their nine Premier League away games this season, scoring in eight of them.
  • The Hammers have conceded three goals in each of their last three home matches.

Sack looms over Manuel Pellegrini as Hammers under deliver

West Ham’s respite from slipping down the Premier League table proved short lived on Boxing Day as they followed a 1-0 win at Southampton with a last minute loss at Selhurst Park, leaving the Hammers just a point clear of the relegation zone at the halfway mark of the season.

Manuel Pellegrini is coming under increasing pressure as the club continues to underperform, and with just two wins in their last 12 league matches he probably doesn’t have much time to turn it around before he faces the sack.

To make matters worse for the long suffering season ticket holders at the London Stadium, both of these recent victories have come away from home. At home, West Ham are winless in five matches and have lost four of them, conceding a dismal 12 goals in the process.

Leicester look to return to winning ways after tough festive period

This is the perfect opportunity for Leicester to find their feet again after a difficult couple of weeks. Their eight match winning streak was brought to a halt as they were held by Norwich earlier this month, and that’s been followed by heavy defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Liverpool.

It’s a testament to how well Leicester have performed this season that, despite failing to win three matches on the trot, they remain comfortably inside the Premier League top four. With matches against the likes of Newcastle, Southampton, Burnley and West Ham coming up in the next month, this is the perfect chance for Leicester to strengthen their grip on Champions League qualification.

Goals expected at the London Stadium

One thing we can expect from this clash is action at both ends of the pitch. While West Ham’s defensive record at home is abysmal at the moment, they have managed to find the net themselves with regularity. They haven’t failed to score in front of their own fans since their opening weekend thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, scoring 11 goals in their seven attempts since.

Leicester, meanwhile, have scored in eight of their nine Premier League away games, and while they harbour one of the best defensive records in the top flight they have still only managed three clean sheets on the road. This makes Both Teams to Score our preferred bet on Saturday evening.

We’re also expecting the Foxes to get back to winning ways here. They have won four of their last five away games and are averaging 2.44 goals per away game this season. West Ham, meanwhile, have lost four of their last five and have shipped three goals in each of their last three at home. The hosts have also averaged 1.37 goals per game at home, so we like the look of a 3-1 correct score prediction.
