Leicester vs West Ham preview: Premier League prediction, tickets, TV, live stream, H2H, team news

West Ham return to Premier League action against Leicester City tonight.

Following defeat to Sheffield United, David Moyes' side had to settle for a draw against Everton at the weekend, with fans staging a peaceful protest against the club's ownership ahead of kick-off.

They continue to hover perilously close to the relegation zone and will hope to take advantage of a Leicester side that, while still third in the table, have suffered rare consecutive defeats at the hands of Southampton and Burnley.

Date: Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester

Kick-off time: 7:30pm GMT

Prediction: Leicester 1-1 West Ham

Leicester are out of sorts at the moment, having gone three consecutive matches without a win across all competitions.

Saturday's loss at Burnley came against a team seemingly in free-fall following four successive defeats.

But are West Ham good enough to take advantage of such a blip?

The Hammers have thrown away the most points from winning positions this term and a draw seems their best hope here, with Leicester no doubt very eager to get back to winning ways.
