Wilfred Ndidi remains on the sidelines as he continues to recover from knee surgery, with Daniel Amartey and Matty James also unavailable due to injury.

Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko are all ruled out, while Felipe Anderson and Michail Antonio will face late fitness tests.

Ndidi’s continued absence represents a major setback for Brendan Rodgers, whose team has struggled to maintain the resilient defensive form that played a major role in the earlier stages of the season.

Indeed, they have kept just one clean sheet in the last eight league matches, having conceded just once in the six preceding games.

Nevertheless, they can at least rely on an attack that continues to do its job at the other end of the pitch, with Jamie Vardy and Co. having failed to score just once in 23 fixtures in all competitions.

Leicester City vs West Ham Tips and Predictions

With this in mind, odds of 3/4 (1.75) seem like strong value on both teams finding the net for Leicester’s seventh league game in nine, as well as a sixth meeting in seven with West Ham.
