West Ham United host Leicester City at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as the Hammers look to extend their stay in the top four in the Premier League.

Most recently, West Ham won away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night, as a very impressive first half helped the Hammers seal three very big points.

Jesse Lingard grabbed a fantastic goal and a great assist either side of a brilliant Pablo Fornals goal which helped the visitors go 3-0 up in the first 40 minutes. 

Leander Dendoncker got one back for Wolves just before halftime to give a bit of hope for the hosts. 

In the 68th minute, Fabio Silva brought the ball down brilliantly and finished off the move to give West Ham flashbacks to their 3-3 draw with Arsenal. However, the Hammers won 3-2 to move into fourth. 

On the other hand, Leicester lost to Manchester City in their most recent game at the King Power Stadium.

In the second half, Benjamin Mendy opened the scoring with a smart finish past Kasper Schmeichel

To secure the win, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling linked up to pass the ball into the back of the net.

Ones to watch

West Ham United - Jesse Lingard 

The midfielder is one of the most inform players at the moment, in the Premier League, following his explosive start to life at West Ham. The attacking midfielder is at the centre of the Hammers' attack, driving West Ham forward superbly. 

The 28-year old was brilliant in all of his games so far for the East London side, being the standout player on the pitch. Settling in very quickly, Lingard has six goals and four assists in eight games, pushing the Hammers towards the UEFA Champions League places. 

Leicester City - Jamie Vardy

Despite not scoring since the second week of February, Vardy will look to add at least one more tally to his record, as he faces West Ham. The striker has scored three times before against Sunday's opponents.

His dynamic runs alongside his quick flowing football can make it difficult for any team to defend against.
