Leicester vs West Ham

Sunday’s Premier League action kicks off at 12 PM UK time, when Leicester welcome West Ham to the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes are set to head into the matchup in superb form.

Granted, a weakened Leicester side did lose to Arsenal in the League Cup last week.

But, when they have been at full strength in the league thus far this season, Brendan Rodgers’ men have looked unplayable at times.

Leicester’s last Premier League outing saw them smash Manchester City 5-2, and, before that, the Midlands-based outfit put four past Burnley and three past West Brom.

Rodgers on Vardy, Evans and Praet

Ahead of Sunday’s game, meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers has provided updates on several of his key stars.

At Manchester City last weekend, both Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans appeared to pick up knocks.

Losing the club’s top-scorer, and one of their best centre-backs, would, of course, come as a big blow for Leicester.

However, Rodgers has since confirmed that both players are fit to feature:

“Jonny is fine. Thankfully he just felt it a little tight but it was more having played his first game, so he was okay. And like I said afterwards, Jamie is absolutely fine. He has this little something in his hip which takes a few days to settle down and he’s fine, he’s okay.”

The Leicester boss also provided a brief update on Dennis Praet:

“Dennis, we’ll see how he is.

“He’s trained but we just need to see what the reaction is for that. Obviously he came off but that wasn’t as serious as what we thought.”
