Picking the Best Potential West Ham Lineup to Face Leicester City on Saturday

​​West Ham travel up to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City on Saturday. 

The Hammers have lost their last two games by a 4-1 scoreline, against Manchester City and Arsenal. 

The London club will be looking to get back to winning ways and pick up three points which will move them away from the dreaded relegation zone.

Here is how David Moyes could set up his team for the trip to ​Leicester


  • Hart

​Adrian took Hart's place against ​Manchester City, due to the goalkeeper being on loan from the champions. With Hart again eligible for this game, he is likely to reclaim his spot in goal. 


  • Rice
  • Ogbonna
  • Cresswell

​Declan Rice has established himself as an important first team member this season, having made 23 league appearances. The 19-year-old defender is likely to increase that number at Leicester on Saturday. 

He is expected to start alongside the more experienced Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell as part of a back three, especially with the absence of defensive stalwarts James Collins and Winston Reid.  


  • Zabaleta
  • Kouyaté
  • Noble
  • Masuaku

​Both Pablo Zabaleta and Arthur Masuaku are expected to start in the wing back roles, where they will be tasked with helping the team in both attacking and defensive situations. 

Captain Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyaté will be hoping to dominate the midfield and supply the attacking players in the team. Both also can prove to be a threat in front of goal, both having scored this season.


  • Fernandes
  • Arnautovic
  • João Mário
    João Mário16

​Both Fernandes and Joao Mario will be working to increase the supply line to lone striker Marko Arnautovic while also proving a threat themselves. Joao Mario has one goal and one assist since he joined on loan in January, but Fernandes has failed to register any goals or assists this season. 

Marko Arnautovic has enjoyed his role as a central striker under David Moyes, and has scored ten goals this season. His speed could cause Leicester defenders Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire problems.
