The famous Boxing Day of English football is left behind. The championship of England continues with virtually no respite. Tomorrow will be the majority of matches of the next round. This is what their Christmas football looks like…
A special match will be “Leicester”. A double blow from the leaders was, perhaps, sensitive, but still expected. Now the main thing for the “foxes” is to return to the victorious path. The stagnant West Ham is a good rival for this. Manuel Pellegrini finally stopped making something in London. Sometimes, however, the “Hammers” can throw a fortress like a victory over Chelsea, but Brendan Rodgers perfectly organized Leicester is hardly up to their teeth.
West Ham team news
West Ham is in serious difficulty. In the last ten matches of the Premier League, the team of Manuel Pellegrini won only two victories in one draw and lost seven times. Only two times in these ten games were the Hammers able to score more goals per game.
In the last three rounds, West Ham first lost to Arsenal (1:3), then defeated Southampton (1:0), and then lost to Crystal Palace (1:2).
In the standings of the submarine West Ham has already slipped to seventeenth place. The team has 19 points in the asset and only 1 point separates it from the relegation zone. The “Hammers” have 20 goals scored and 30 conceded.
Native walls are not a fortress for West Ham. In the current championship, the home team plays even worse than away – 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses (away 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses).
Leicester City team news
“Leicester”, if he hoped to seriously compete for the league title, he lost these hopes after the match with “Liverpool”, which took place on December 26. Brendan Rogers team lost 0-4.
Before that, Leicester lost to another neighbor in the standings – Man City. (1:3).
Now the gap from the leading Liverpool is already 14 points. Leicester has 29 points, 41 goals scored (third best result in the league) and 18 conceded (second best). “Foxes” may lose the second position, as “City” has less match.
