Place: King Power. Leicester.
Date: on the 27th of October, 2018 (Saturday)
Match start: 17:30 (GMT+1)
Claude Puel’s team has lost 66% of matches on a distances of six last matches within the championship. The match with Arsenal (1:3) didn’t finish with a positive outcome though we in the forecast believed that they will manage to do this.
The results at the stadium don’t please either as the Foxes have lost to two Liverpool teams and with the identical score 1:2. The team has won over Huddersfield (3:1), Fleetwood (4:0) and Wolverhampton (2:0), confidently and easily.
James Maddison hasn’t managed to score a goal on Emirates Stadium, however, as well as all other players of the Foxes. The own goal was scored by Hector Bellerin.
Londoners after a series of quite good results have lost two matches in a row. And there is an impression that Pellegrini’s team has returned on season’s start when the football players were losing to everyone.
Andriy Yarmolenko’s trauma added some troubles in the form of defeats from Brighton (0:1) and Tottenham (0:1). The Ukrainian has only has begun to join the team and to perform in starting lineup and has got an Achilles tendon rupture. Now we will hardly see the midfielder on the field until the end of the season; six months will take him to recover.
Yarmolenko has scored 2 out of 7 goals of his team in the championship and four more goals were scored by Marko Arnautović. The Austrian is in a leader of his team on individual xG (3.66), having played at the same time only one more match. But in the matches with the Spurs (0.22) and the Seagulls (0.34) this indicator was insignificant, as well as at all team.

Bookmaker coefficients on the match Leicester vs West Ham
Leicester to win – 2.07
Draw – 3.35;
West Ham to win – 3.65
We don’t think that now we can believe in guests. Counterattacks, as well as active wings, took place in matches in which Yarmolenko was playing. The Ukrainian midfielder added non-standard approach to the game of the team of Pellegrini. In the future meeting West Ham should fight against the rival who give a ball with great pleasure and will try to organize a counter game.
