MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES

@johnrodercomm: Leicester’s run of wins under Brendan Rodgers came to an end at home against Newcastle last weekend, while West Ham were unfortunate not to get anything from the loss at Manchester United, their third successive defeat.

So both teams will be looking to put their season back on track, but this will be a match overshadowed by memories of the awful tragedy that occurred after their first meeting in October.

The helicopter carrying five people, including the Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, crashed after the match, with all on-board tragically killed.

VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini on his side’s season: “It’s not an easy answer because there are two sides to it. Yes, I’m happy because it is a solid season compared to the last one.

“Having so many important players injured for so long is not easy. But always I feel we can do better. There are a lot of results that we could have improved. Maybe for this season, it’s okay.”

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers on the race for seventh: “We’re not really thinking about that. We want to finish as high as we can and do our very best.

“It’s important we continue to work and prepare for next season while finishing as strongly as possible.”

LAWRO’S PREDICTION

I was surprised to see Leicester lose against Newcastle last week, and the Foxes did not really create many good chances either.

West Ham will be far more open, which will suit Leicester, but if the Hammers play like they did against Manchester United last time out, I think they will come out on top.

Prediction: 2-1
