TEAM NEWS
Premier League leaders Leicester have a fully-fit squad to face West Ham at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes have named the same starting line-up in 11 of their last 13 games and could do so again on Sunday.

West Ham will be without forward Diafra Sakho for a third match because of a knee injury.

Defenders Winston Reid and Sam Byram are available after missing Wednesday's FA Cup defeat. Byram was cup-tied while Reid had a tight hamstring.

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head

  • Leicester have won the last three meetings in all competitions by a 2-1 scoreline.
  • Andy King has scored the winner with four minutes remaining in two of those three games.
Leicester City

  • Leicester could win six consecutive top-flight matches for only the second time. They previously did so in March 1963 on their way to a club record seven wins in a row.
  • Victory against West Ham would give Leicester an outright top-flight club record of 22 victories in a season.
  • Eleven of Leicester's 14 clean sheets have come in their last 15 league matches.
  • They have kept a top flight club record of five consecutive clean sheets, as well as seven in their last eight home league matches.
  • Jamie Vardy has 21 league goals this season. He is the first Leicester player to pass 20 in the top flight since Gary Lineker in 1984-85.
West Ham

  • West Ham have lost just four of their last 16 Premier League away games (W6, D6, L4).
  • However, they have only won one of their last five (D2, L2).
  • Their last league clean sheet away from home came on 20 December against Swansea.
  • Dimitri Payet has been involved in seven goals (four assists, three goals) in his last seven league games.

PRESHA!

Could go either way this one. We're 2 out of 2 against them this season. They draw a lot of games though so I think that's the likeliest outcome.

This is the game where Leicester bow under pressure, this time there is absolutely no doubt in my mind.

Quite remarkable that I tipped both these sides to go down this year

We might as well get some WWE sponsorship with the amount of wrestling at set pieces.

Finally, a ref doing their job and calling him up on his blatant diving that he does almost everytime he's in the box.

This ref is having a total mare. How is the West Ham one a penalty and that challenge on Huth not a penalty?

And just to nail on what I've said he gives that as a penalty. That challenge wasn't too dissimilar to the Vardy challenge and he sent him off

Vardy will be thanking his lucky stars that his stupid dive hasn't resulted in a loss.

Probably a fair result?

The important thing is that we all know who Ron Moss is now.

Moss shit himself at the thought of being the man to deny little Leicester the title. I'd be fuming if I was a Spurs fan at that penalty.

Contentious game from the ref!

Not sure either team will be too happy so maybe a draw is fair.

Well Moss made a right mess of those last 10 minutes, didn't he?

As for super Andy Carroll, another goal for the big man. Taking his impressive record to a whopping TWELVE league goals in the last two seasons. He should be a shoe-in for the England squad!

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

Huth getting away with using his arms?

Nah.

But equally Leicester fans can be fuming at lots of decisions. Gives WHU a penalty for next to nothing (in terms of some of the things we see players get away with in the area) and then doesn't give Leicester one when Huth is pretty much put in a headlock

Switched to this game at half-time. Great call on Vardy, but Moss ruined the game with those penalty calls, neither should have been given.

Ps. Cresswell's goal was sublime.

The yellow to send Vardy off is fine, but he shouldn't have been carded in the first instance.

I agree with Henry stating that the West Ham penalty was given due to a number of manhandling incidents before, maybe the same kind of way that sometimes a player will get a yellow card for a simple foul after consecutive offences previously.

The Leicester penalty was very soft but maybe it was justice for Huth not getting one early on but I don't think Leicester can feel hard done by as they could've given away more pens.

Vardy going to miss the Swansea game which could be bad. Spurs run in is easier could make for an exciting run in providing spurs win tomorrow.
