Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for West Ham v Leicester

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts West Ham’s game against Leicester at London Stadium.

  I thought Leicester’s tactics were strange in Thursday’s defeat by Liverpool. James Maddison was on the left of midfield but he kept disappearing to come inside and play, because that is what he does.

  That left Trent Alexander-Arnold completely free to pile forward down Liverpool’s right. Everyone knows what a threat he is, and I don’t really understand how Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers did not spot what was happening, or try to change things to stop him.

  Leicester are now without a win in three league games, and I am not convinced they will get a victory here, either.

  The pressure is mounting on West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini as his side slide down the table, but they have picked up some decent one-off results along the way and I just have a feeling this will end up in a draw.

Lawrenson’s prediction: 1-1
