West Ham host Leicester this afternoon keen for a victory to relieve the mounting pressure before the World Cup break.

While David Moyes has built up so much goodwill in his second stint in charge, few would doubt things aren’t going to plan right now. Beaten by Blackburn’s second-string in the Carabao Cup and struggling to convince in the Premier League despite a heavy summer spend, the Scot is under the spotlight.

His opposite number, meanwhile, has started to turn Leicester’s season around. Despite so much talk surrounding his future, Brendan Rodgers has overseen a slight upturn, with his side now pushing clear of the relegation zone.

Although the Foxes boast a huge amount of quality and can hurt any team on their day, the optics of losing to a team who once appeared marooned to the bottom of the table would hardly lift the mood in east London.

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s game.
