West Ham United-Leicester City Preview

Looking to shake out of their first true funk of the season, overachieving Leicester City try to bounce back Wednesday at home versus West Ham United.

The Foxes (14-3-6) continue to be the primary surprise package of 2019-20 along with promoted Sheffield United, though the Midlands side continue to hold down a Champions League spot.

Brendan Rodgers has some tinkering to do, however, after the Foxes were defeated 2-1 at Burnley on Sunday. Jamie Vardy had a chance to put Leicester City ahead from the spot on 68 minutes but was stoned by Nick Pope.
