Confirmed West Ham United starting line-up v Leicester City: Manuel Lanzini axed

David Moyes has named a strong starting line-up as West Ham aim to bounce back to winning ways in the Premier League against Leicester City.

The Hammers lost 2-1 against Crystal Palace at home in their previous league game, and David Moyes is under a lot of pressure at the moment to keep his job.

Via Twitter, the club have confirmed the starting eleven. The Hammers have made changes from the side that lost against Blackburn Rovers in the Carabao Cup.

Here’s the confirmed starting line-up: Fabianski, Kehrer, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Benrahma, Paqueta, Bowen and Scamacca


Tony Cottee, the Hammers legend, has rightly said that this is a “massive” game for the club. 

This is the last game ahead of the World Cup break, and West Ham will want to pick up all three points at home. They are really struggling at the moment. 

Only a few weeks back, Leicester were badly struggling in the league, but they have completely turned it out in recent games. 

The Hammers must forget the disappointment of the league cup exit and focus on the game ahead. They need to be on top of their game to beat their rivals. 

The Hammers lost 2-1 against Crystal Palace at the London Stadium in their previous game, and Moyes needs to get his selection and tactics spot on. 

Rodgers loves to play an attacking and exciting brand of football, and it could result in an end-to-end open game. The Hammers must convert their chances when it comes. 

The Hammers have a very strong squad but they are underperforming at the moment. Ahead of the World Cup break, they must focus on picking up all three points against the Foxes today.
