West Ham team news: Duo doubtful vs Leicester, Hammers without quartet

West Ham United are due to play against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

David Moyes’ Hammers side will be looking to get some points against the wounded Foxes in order to try and move further away from the relegation zone.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester side enter into the game in third position on the league standings though they have lost their last two successive games against Southampton and Burnley respectively.

West Ham have been in poor form for much of the season and have managed to win just three out of their last 16 league games. They can however back themselves to win Wednesday’s game.

Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko are ruled out of the game, according to Goal.

The report added that Felipe Anderson and Michail Antonio will undergo late fitness tests before a decision is made on whether the West Ham duo will feature during the game.

The absence of regular first-choice keeper Fabianski means that Darren Randolph, who rejoined the Hammers from Middlesbrough this month, will start in goal.

The two sides last met at the London Stadium late last month with Leicester managing a 2-1 away win through goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and Demarai Gray.

The injury of Wilfried Ndidi appears to have taken a toll on Rodgers’ team.

On paper many would expect Leicester to be the favourites against the West Ham.

However, this could be a very close game if recent form is to go by. The Hammers are capable of penetrating Rodgers’ defence.
