West Ham United and Leicester City, both with big ambitions, battle in early Premier League test
Both West Ham United and Leicester City have some lofty aspirations after their 2020-21 campaigns.
Leicester City won the F.A. Cup, and won the F.A. Charity Shield before this season, to shake off the disappointment of a second-straight late collapse to fall out of the UEFA Champions League places.
West Ham United finished last season in sixth place, and will join the Foxes in the UEFA Europa League group stages, where both teams should be among the favorites to win the trophy.
Today, the two teams battle in an early Premier League test for both. I think there will be some goals in this contest, and I would lean towards Leicester City if I had to make a pick. I think you might even be able to push the total up to 2.75 or even 3: this could be a shootout.
