Tip West Ham - Leicester
Leicester have earned just one point from three games and will drop to third if Manchester City get a point at Wolves on Friday. They look to get back in winning ways when traveling to 17th placed West Ham United. City have conceded seven goals in their last two games and have shown they are still a fair bit behind Liverpool and Manchester City. City are still a dangerous side though and up against the lesser opposition of West Ham are likely to fare much better. They had won four away league games in a row before losing to Manchester City last weekend. It takes a top team to beat them on their travels and West Ham aren't anywhere near being in that category.
West Ham continue to be in relegation trouble and are only a point above the bottom three. It's nowhere near where they wanted to be after spending so much money during the summer. The loss to Crystal Palace on Boxing Day was their third loss in four league games. Just how long West Ham will let Pellegrini continue remains to be seen. They have two home games this week against Leicester and Bournemouth, failing to get a win might just see the Hammers looking for another manager. Home league form is appalling of late with four losses in the last five with three goals conceded in each of the last three. Their defending has already seen them concede 17 home league games and more look likely here. Go for Leicester to get an away victory here.
Key points West Ham - Leicester
Leicester City have won four of their last five away league games.
West Ham have lost four of their last five home league matches.
West Ham have conceded three goals in each of their last three home league games.
Conclusion West Ham - Leicester
Leicester need to get back in winning form and travel to West Ham and Newcastle in the next few days. Their title challenge looks over, it's now a battle for second place or failing that, ensuring they get into the Champions League. Their away form is good unless up against top sides. West Ham are in poor form and a managerial change could well be on the way. Their home form is terrible and far too many goals are being conceded. This looks ideal for Leicester to get an away win.
