Dean Smith’s side are currently 18th in the table and trail fellow relegation battlers Everton by two points. The best chance they have of staying in the top-flight is to pick up all three points and hope that Everton and Leeds fail to win.
David Moyes’s West Ham have underperformed in the league this season, but they’ve been incredible in Europe. The Irons have reached the Europa Conference League final and with their spot in the Premier League already secure, the manager may choose not to risk some of his key players this afternoon. Can the Foxes sweep West Ham aside and avoid relegation?
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this crunch encounter:
When is Leicester vs West Ham?

Kelechi Iheanacho, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Ricardo Pereira and Jonny Evans have all had limited playing time over recent weeks for Leicester but are expected to be available according to manager Dean Smith. Wilfred Ndidi is a doubt, while Caglar Soyuncu is out.
Nayef Aguerd is available for West Ham after returning to training on Friday. Emerson had a knock to his knee so will be assessed and Gianluca Scamacca still hasn’t recovered from a knee operation so won’t play a part in the game.
Leicester win 19/20
West Ham win 5/2
Leicester haven’t won in five league games yet find themselves in with a chance of staying up. Dean Smith will let all his star players off the lease as the Foxes provide some late season drama. They’ll edge past West Ham, who’s focus is on the Europa Conference League final, but it may not be enough for them to survive the drop.
Leicester 2-1 West Ham.
