Leicester welcome West Ham to the King Power Stadium as Brendan Rodgers looks to alleviate the mounting pressure on his position as manager.

The Foxes are winless in their last four matches, including last weekend's FA Cup humiliation at the hands of Nottingham Forest.

Rodgers lost his cool with his players in the post-match interview that afternoon, and they were unable to muster a response when they were defeated comfortably by Liverpool in midweek.

Here's how the Foxes could line up.


Leicester predicted lineup vs West Ham - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - The Denmark international has struggled to replicate the form he showed last campaign.

James Justin (RB) - The 23-year-old's return from injury has been much welcomed by Rodgers.

Daniel Amartey (CB) - Although Liverpool laid siege to the Leicester goal, the 27-year-old stood up well to the challenge in midweek.

Wilfried Ndidi (CB) - Has been forced to cover in central defence amid Caglar Soyuncu and Jannik Vestergaard's poor form.

Luke Thomas (LB) - His energy on the left flank makes him such an effective outlet for the Foxes.

2. Midfielders

Youri Tielemans (CM) - Has found himself out of the team in recent weeks after a string of disappointing performances.

Boubakary Soumare (CM) - A shrewd pick-up from Lille in the summer given his defensive nous in midfield.

James Maddison (AM) - The Englishman has been the shining light in an otherwise dismal campaign for the Foxes.

3. Forwards

Ademola Lookman (RW) - His pace and directness on the flank should trouble West Ham.

Patson Daka (ST) - Has scored or assisted seven times in just ten Premier League appearances this season.

Harvey Barnes (LW) - Hooked at half time during the FA Cup humbling from Nottingham Forest last weekend.
