Issa Diop Tottenham

West Ham United take on Leicester City in the Premier League later tonight and will be looking to build on their impressive win over Newcastle United last time out.

The Hammers beat Leicester twice last season and will fancy their chances of securing a positive result at the London Stadium.

Leicester head into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their season opener last weekend.

The Hammers were impressive going forward against Newcastle but were vulnerable at the back and will need to tighten up against the Foxes.

Leicester certainly have the attackers to take advantage of West Ham’s defensive vulnerability.

Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes and James Maddison are top-quality attacking players who could punish them severely if they slip up at the back.

Issa Diop could be the only change to the line-up that won against Newcastle.

Craig Dawson’s lack of pace could be costly against Vardy and Barnes, and he could drop down to the bench to accommodate the 24-year-old.

West Ham United Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna, Issa Diop, Vladimir Coufal; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Pablo Fornals, Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma; Michail Antonio.
