West Ham will be looking to keep up their pursuit of a top-four finish when they travel to struggling Leicester this Sunday.

The Hammers beat Watford in midweek to stay fourth and David Moyes’ side are eager to secure European football again this season.

Leicester, meanwhile, have been in poor form recently, losing to Liverpool on Thursday following their FA Cup exit at Nottingham Forest last weekend.

The Foxes are 14 points off the Irons but do have three games in hand over their opponents this Sunday.

The pressure is building on Brendan Rodgers and he needs a response from his side.

But West Ham smashed Leicester 4-1 earlier this season with Michail Antonio scoring twice and Ayoze Perez being sent off.

Leicester v West Ham: Team news

Leicester defender Wesley Fofana is nearing his return but this weekend will come too soon.

The Foxes also remain without Jamie Vardy, Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans and Ryan Bertrand.

It remains to be seen if West Ham will hand another start to Kurt Zouma following his difficult week.

Angelo Ogbonna and Arthur Masuaku are still out.

Leicester v West Ham: What has been said?

West Ham United forward Michail Antonio: “It was an amazing night against Leicester last time. It’s something that I’m always going to remember. 

“That’s now in the past, though, so hopefully, this Sunday, I can pick up and start scoring more goals again. 

“It would be lovely to create more memories [against them].

“Three points on board is always important. 

“Obviously against Watford, it wasn’t one of our best games as a team, but getting the three points and being resilient in those moments is key to us finishing where we want to finish at the end of the season.

“The quality that we have, and with the players that we have, we know that we can keep going and we can keep pushing until the end of the season. 

“Hopefully we can keep going and we can pick up on our form and our gelling together, and have a strong final third to the season.”
