The Foxes stunned the Premier League last Sunday when Jamie Vardy scored a hat-trick that put Manchester City to the sword.
Leicester City may not need his heroics this time out, but Brendan Rodgers’ side should be wary of a West Ham United team that look more capable than previously anticipated.
The Hammers got off to a terrible start against Newcastle, but showed improvements at Arsenal before thumping Wolves 4-0 last Sunday.
David Moyes will be hoping that Michail Antonio can continue to disrupt opposition defenders and that Jarrod Bowen can add to his double from a week ago.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.
When is it?
The fixture will kick-off at 12pm BST at the King Power Stadium.
How can I watch it?
The match will be televised on BT Sport 1, where coverage will begin from 11:30am. Subscribers can also stream the game via the BT Sport app.
What is the team news?
Leicester are without right back Ricardo Pereira, who has a long-term knee problem, while Wilfred Ndidi is still out with a groin issue. Rodgers will be hoping that Dennis Praet is available as he recovers from a knock on his knee.
David Moyes largely has a full squad to pick from, although Ryan Fredericks is missing due to a hamstring injury. Other than that, there won’t be many changes to the side that stunned Wolves last time out.
Leicester: Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Justin; Praet, Tielemans, Mendy, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
West Ham: Fabianski; Johnson, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Fornals; Antonio
Leicester – 4/6
Draw – 16/5
West Ham – 4/1
