Few injury issues aids Moyes selection

By Hughie Southon

West Ham are in as good shape fitness wise as they have been all season with the only confirmed injury absentee being Ivory Coast winger Maxwel Cornet.

He suffered a calf injury in the win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on 1 October but beyond the former Burnley player only Emerson is considered possibly doubtful having broken his nose in the midweek Carabao Cup tie with Blackburn.

In terms of form none of the three right backs look great right now and a question mark certainly hangs over Tomas Soucek whilst on the positive side Pablo Fornals has looked business of late.

Leicester City will be without full-back James Justin, who has suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

Right-back Ricardo Pereira is also ruled out until the New Year, while centre-back Çağlar Söyüncü (hamstring) and left-back Ryan Bertrand (knee) are also set to miss the game.
