Team news, key stats and prediction ahead of Leicester vs West Ham in the Premier League on Wednesday (kick-off 7.30pm).

Team news

Leicester defender Ben Chilwell and midfielder Hamza Choudhury return to the squad for the Premier League visit of West Ham to the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night.

Both players were omitted for Sunday's 2-1 loss at Burnley as they "missed a very important session", according to manager Brendan Rodgers in the build-up to the game.

Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi could remarkably figure despite only undergoing a minor knee operation 11 days ago.

Meanwhile, Felipe Anderson is sidelined for the Hammers after being ruled out for one month with a back injury.

Michail Antonio is closing in on a return from a hamstring injury and could be available for the fixture.

Ryan Fredericks (hamstring), Jack Wilshere (groin) and Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh) are still missing along with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski (hip).

Opta stats

  • Leicester have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League meetings with West Ham (W5 D4), a 0-2 home loss in May 2018.
  • Having won their first two Premier League away games against Leicester, West Ham have won just two of their subsequent 10 visits (D4 L4), with their only win at the King Power Stadium coming in May 2018 (2-0).
  • Away from home, West Ham are winless in their last six evening kick-offs in the Premier League (7pm or later), drawing one, losing five and failing to score a single goal since beating Southampton 2-1 in December 2018.
  • Leicester have lost their last two Premier League home games, more than they had in their previous 15 at King Power Stadium in the competition (W11 D3 L1). They've conceded six goals in those two defeats, as many as they'd shipped in their previous 13 at home.
  • West Ham have won just three of their last nine Premier League games when going ahead (W3 D3 L3), dropping 15 points across those matches.
  • Leicester have lost four of their last six Premier League games (W2) - only one fewer than they lost in their first 27 league games under Brendan Rodgers (W17 D5 L5).
  • Leicester haven't lost three consecutive Premier League games since the final three games of Claude Puel's reign as manager - meanwhile, current manager Brendan Rodgers hasn't lost three league games in a row since November 2014 with Liverpool.
  • This will be West Ham manager David Moyes' 50th Premier League away game against a side starting the day in the top four - the Scotsman has won just one of his 49 such games so far (D15 L33), with his Everton side beating third-placed Man City 2-1 in December 2010.
  • Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has attempted just three shots in his last three Premier League appearances - his first shot of 2020 was a penalty that was saved by Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.
  • West Ham striker Sébastien Haller scored with three of his first seven shots in the Premier League but has since found the net with just three of his subsequent 40 efforts at goal.

Charlie Nicholas' prediction

I watched West Ham at the weekend and they had a very good first half but did not put the game to bed. They missed the creativity from Felipe Anderson and Sebastien Haller was better - he should have scored a couple but did not. Mark Noble and Declan Rice were great, particularly Noble in the first half who was excellent

All of a sudden, Leicester are slumping. Brendan Rodgers has always strived for possession football, but sometimes the final pass is not executed. He needs James Maddison to stay on his feet - winning a free-kick in dangerous areas is clever, but stay on your feet and show us some of your magic.

They are caught in a weird situation at the minute. Jamie Vardy has had a few chances and missed them. The two I mention are always Vardy and Maddison. Harvey Barnes took his goal well at the weekend but the likes of him, Demarai Gray and Ayoze Perez have to start delivering and do more. They are a bit unpredictable at the minute, and this makes me want to go with a draw once more.
