West Ham will be wondering how their domestic and European form can be so different. Having won all six group games in the Europa Conference League, the Hammers have lost three of their last four league games, leaving them on the brink of a relegation battle. Last time out against Crystal Palace, the team was particularly poor with just 42% possession against a side they will consider themselves better than. David Moyes will be hoping to sign off for the World Cup break on a positive note against the Foxes. A performance from record-signing Lucas Paqueta would help no-end and the Brazilian will be buoyed by his inclusion in the nation's World Cup 2022 squad. The Hammers have a largely healthy squad with only Maxwell Cornet and Said Benrahma touch and go for this fixture. 

Brendan Rodgers will be delighted by the reaction of his Leicester side to their early season woes. The Foxes have won three of their last four with the only aberration a respectable 1-0 defeat to Manchester City. Goals have not been hard to come by for Leicester this season — midfielder Youri Tielemans has been holding a one-man goal-of-the-month competition and James Maddison has been at his creative best. The defensive struggles the team faced earlier this season seem to have subsided as well, conceding just one goal in their last five games. This has largely come through patience, with goalkeeper Danny Ward looking more assured and new defender Wout Faes proving an inspired signing. This strong defensive record is even more impressive considering the absences of defenders Ryan Bertrand, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu, and Ricardo Pereira.

Last season these two sides produces a 4-1 Hammers victory and then a 2-2 draw so this could be another goal fest waiting to happen. Don’t miss the West Ham vs Leicester live stream for what is bound to be an exciting encounter between two teams right next to each other in the league table. 

The lineups are as follows:

West Ham (Formation 4-1-4-1): 1 Fabianski, 15 Dawson, 24 Kehrer, 3 Cresswell, 4 Zouma, 7 Scamacca, 28 Soucek, 11 Tolentino Coelho de Lima, 22 Benrahma, 41 Rice, 20 Bowen

Leicester (Formation 4-1-4-1): 1 Ward, 27 Castagne, 18 Amartey, 3 Faes, 33 Thomas, 42 Soumaré, 10 Maddison, 8 Tielemans, 22 Dewsbury-Hall, 7 Barnes, 20 Daka
