Hammers hunt Foxes double

Leicester City look at King Power stadium expansion - or may even build new  ground - Leicestershire Live

The Hammers go into the game against Leicester City on Sunday looking for a double over the 12th placed Premier League outfit which on occasions has been held up as an example of what our club should and could have been! Ironic

Having won the title under Claudio Raneri the Foxes – benefitting from big investment – thrived under Brendan Rodgers but this season have sunk to mid table obscurity, were humbled as FA Cup holders by east midlands neighbours Nottingham Forest in the fourth round and are not the scary prospect they were of a few seasons back.

They can certainly not be treated lightly although they are now three games without a win with the Irons looking to capitalise on the result over Watford .

We scored a great 4-2 victory over the east midlanders in our second game of the season when they were reduced to 10 men with the 4-1 win following our 4-2 victory at Newcastle.
