David Moyes to make 11 changes in must-win clash - West Ham United predicted XI v Leicester City

West Ham United welcome Leicester City to the London Stadium on Saturday 12th November in a great fixture to put some points on the board.

The Hammers come into the fixture off the back of a catastrophic Carabao Cup tie that saw them crash out of the competition to Blackburn Rovers.

Now, David Moyes will make a host of changes to his makeshift cup side for the return to Premier League action as he goes bezerk to return to winning ways.

Lukasz Fabianski will take over the goalkeeping duties from Alphonse Areola after the Frenchman’s Carabao Cup outing.

In defence, Thilo Kehrer should come back into the starting lineup after being left out completely of the Carabao Cup squad. He’ll start alongside the Hammers’ tried and trusted centre-back duo of Kurt Zouma and Craig Dawson, who also didn’t feature in the Carabao Cup.

Aaron Cresswell will make up the Irons backline, after making a cameo appearance in Wednesday evening’s Carabao Cup loss.

Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek will partner with each other in the Hammers engine room, Rice was given a rest from League Cup action whilst Soucek was an unused sub.

Saïd Benrahma came on as a second-half substitute in the disappointing cup tie but should return to Moyes’ starting XI after some impressive outings recently.

Jarrod Bowen and Lucas Paqueta should also return to West Ham’s starting XI as the team’s main midfield attacking outlets.

Gianluca Scamacca should spearhead the Hammers’ attack as he has done in recent Premier League outings.

Predicted West Ham United XI v Leicester City – Fabianski; Kehrer, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Paqueta, Benrahma; Scamacca.
