Leicester v West Ham: match preview


After adjusting his tactics last week to earn a remarkable win at Manchester City, Brendan Rodgers is likely to revert to a more familiar method as he tries to prolong Leicester’s strong start to the season. His attempt to dominate play may lead to a first start of the season for James Maddison, whose performance off the bench last week suggested he has regained all his sharpness. West Ham also go into this game on the back of an excellent result thanks to last week’s 4-0 victory over Wolves. But Leicester should edge this fixture between two teams in form. Paul Doyle
