West Ham vs Leicester City Match Preview & Team News
Despite trailing at halftime, the home side opened the new campaign with a 4:2 victory away to Newcastle United. West Ham had a pretty successful last season, and they were very close to securing the Champions League spot. However, their inconsistency in the final few rounds held them at 6th place, and we’ll watch the Hammers in the Europa League. David Moyes wants to repeat the last season’s success and remain in the top six again. Nevertheless, the hosts haven’t changed their squad much, as they only loaned Alphonse Areola and Craig Dawson. On the other hand, they loaned out Felipe Anderson and Fabian Balbuena. West Ham enjoyed a good preseason, and they want to book another victory.
Leicester City had a confident start, as they celebrated a narrow 1:0 victory over Wolves. It was their second win in a row in 2021/22 after beating Manchester City in Community Shield. Brendan Rodgers’ side slipped out of the top four due to a poor form in the finish of the campaign. The visitors don’t want to make the same mistake again, and they were very active on the transfer market. The Foxes signed Ryan Bertrand and Jannik Vestergaard from Southampton, while their two most notable signings are Boubakary Soumare and Patson Daka. They managed to keep the key players until now, and Leicester City is a candidate for a top-four finish. It is another tough challenge for them, and we’ll see if the visitors will be successful again.
