West Ham – Lingard inspiring Hammers to go above and beyond?

Since marking his debut for the club with a brace of goals in February’s 3-1 away win against Aston Villa, no player in the Premier League has had a hand in more goals than Manchester United’s on-loan midfielder Jesse Lingard. The resurgence of the 28-year-old as an exciting, devastating attacking force has been a sight to behold and the England international could be key to the club’s top four ambitions.

After many of their rivals slipped up last time, it was left to West Ham (W15 D7 L8) to capitalise and that was precisely what they did, aided by another scintillating display from someone who is fast becoming one of the shrewdest signings of 2020-21. A goal and an assist in Monday’s 3-2 win over Wolves at Molineux took Lingard’s contribution in West Ham colours to nine goals – six goals and three assists.

David Moyes was quick to heap praise on his winter recruit, and so he should, but West Ham as a collective are not going away in this intriguing race for Champions League football next term. Currently occupying the fourth and final berth, the Hammers know their top four destiny is in their own hands while victory on Sunday would see them reduce the gap on third place Leicester to a solitary point.

Leicester – Foxes enjoy visits to London Stadium?

The Foxes had reeled off three consecutive victories in league and cup, scoring ten in the process including three in progressing to the semi-finals of the FA Cup following an impressive 3-1 win against Manchester United here at King Power Stadium. That was prior to encountering the relentless winning machine that is Manchester City, the runaway league leaders easing to a 2-0 victory at this venue last weekend.

Brendan Rodgers’ side were completely outclassed on that occasion, but weren’t the first to suffer such a fate. There were also positives for the Leicester (W17 D5 L8) manager, namely that he could get more minutes into the legs of Ricardo Pereira and James Maddison who are still short of match sharpness. Both could feature from the start at London Stadium, where their record breeds further encouragement.

In four previous visits to the relatively recent home of West Ham, Leicester remain unbeaten thus far, bookending a pair of score draws with 3-2 and 2-1 victories. The latter serving as the most recent when Kelechi Iheanacho – the Foxes man of the moment with seven goals in his last five starts – opened the scoring. Meanwhile, Ayoze Perez has been involved in six goals in his last seven starts against the Hammers.
