Remember the Premier League? It’s been two long weeks since Leicester City have had to deal with the mundane drudgery between Champions League game and...wait, actually the league is still pretty intense right now. A win over relegation rivals Hull City has given the Foxes some breathing room, but they still need to fight for every point the can right now. Time to put the fun and games of Europe aside for a while.
Today’s opponents West Ham had their own rocky start to the season, but have since recovered to sit comfortably mid table, despite being forced into selling Dimitri Payet in January. The Hammers are fairly beatable at the moment however, taking 2 points in their last 4 games.

Leicester City Team News:
Danny Drinkwater has ruled himself out of the England squad, as he’s dealing with a persistent groin issue, but is expected to be available for the Foxes still. Mandy remains out, while the club has confirmed Wagué will miss the rest of the season.
West Ham Team News:
The Hammers will be without their captain, and their own version of Drinkwater, Mark Noble. Diafra Sakho and Angelo Ogbonna will also miss out through injury, while Robert Snodgrass and Alvaro Arbeloa are doubtful.
No Wes in the squad. We’ll call that unexpected. A rest apparently, as he’s still tired from Sevilla. Although others are saying a back problem. We’ll see.
West Ham: Randolph; Byram, Fonte, Reid, Cresswell; Obiang, Kouyate; Antonio, Lanzini, Ayew; Carroll
