Leicester City v West Ham

Leicester City are looking for another win and another finger on the Premier League trophy, but face a tough task against West Ham at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

The Foxes still have a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League standings, and with just five games left to play they are closing in on a remarkable league title after winning their last five matches on the trot, and will be happy with a repeat of the 2-1 victory they achieved when they met the Hammers earlier in the campaign.

But while Leicester are in fine winning form, the Hammers have been held to three successive stalemates against London rivals Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Arsenal, leaving them in sixth place, one point behind Manchester United and five adrift of Manchester City in fourth.

In team news, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic confirmed that defender Winston Reid will be available to start after missing their midweek defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup, while Sam Byram (muscular injury) could also feature.

Also sidelined for West Ham are Diafra Sakho (knee) and Carl Jenkinson (anterior cruciate ligament), while midfielder Matty James (knee) is Leicester’s only injury doubt.
