Can the Foxes Bounce Back? Leicester v West Ham Ultimate Form Guide

By timgarrett IN General,Premier League,Ultimate Form Guide - 19:50 Dec 30th 2016
 

It’s an old footballing cliché, but 2016 really has been a year of two halves for both West Ham and Leicester. Back in May the Foxes were cruising to a historic Premier League title, whilst Slaven Bilić & co. were coming within a whisker of gatecrashing the top 4 themselves.

Fast-forward to December, however, at the picture isn’t quite so rosy. Both sides currently sit in the bottom half of the table, and head into their final match of the calendar year hoping that January brings improved fortunes.

Ahead of their meeting at the King Power, our Ultimate Form Guide (above) reflects far more favorably on West Ham than the Champions, however, with the Irons currently leading their hosts in 11 out of 15 key statistical categories.

A run of three consecutive wins has certainly boosted their stats, and the 4 goals scored at Swansea last time out means they now edge ahead of Leicester in terms of attacking performance.

It’s in defense, however, where the contrast becomes more stark. Whilst West Ham have issues of their own, this Foxes side appears to be falling apart. Having made their name on defensive solidity last season, they are now conceding an average of 2.1 goals per game. If that wasn’t bad enough, their conversion rate against (24%) is the worst in the division.

If Leicester are to get anything out of the game they will need to tighten up at the back, otherwise West Ham’s forwards could have as much of a field day as they enjoyed last time out at Swansea.
