West Ham make the trip to Leicester in the Premier League as David Moyes' side look to strengthen their top four credentials.

The Hammers returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Watford in midweek, which was overshadowed by the video which emerged on social media of defender Kurt Zouma kicking a cat.

West Ham revealed the Frenchman has been "fined the maximum amount", although Moyes said in midweek that the defender will continue to be available for selection going forward.

Here's how the Hammers could line up in the meantime.


West Ham predicted lineup vs Leicester - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Lukasz Fabianski (GK) - Safe hands between the posts, which would have seemed a bizarre statement to make a decade ago.

Vladimir Coufal (RB) - Briefly lost his place in the side, but he has underlined his importance in recent weeks.

Craig Dawson (CB) - The experienced head at the heart of Moyes' defensive unit.

Kurt Zouma (CB) - Will retain his place in the team despite the furore over his cat kicking video.

Aaron Cresswell (LB) - Boasts excellent deliveries from wide areas which Antonio tends to thrive off.

2. Midfielders

Declan Rice (CM) - Spared West Ham's blushes in their FA Cup win over non-league Kidderminster last weekend.

Tomas Soucek (CM) - His goal threat has dried up in recent weeks, although his performances have remained consistent.

Pablo Fornals (AM) - Capable of unlocking the tightest of defences with his eye for a pass.

3. Forwards

Jarrod Bowen

Jarrod Bowen (RW) - Provided the difference in the midweek win over Watford, as he has done so often this season for the Hammers.

Michail Antonio (ST) - Has handled the responsibility of being West Ham's sole No.9 commendably.

Manuel Lanzini (LW) - Moyes may look to utilise his pace against a slow Leicester rearguard.
