Hammers’ aim to maintain top-four push

West Ham boss David Moyes saw his side come from 3-0 down at Tottenham on Sunday.

Sunday’s Premier League action sees three games taking place at 14:00 before West Ham United go to Leicester City in the 16:30 kick-off looking to make it three wins on the spin in all competitions and maintain their push for a top-four finish in the process (Leicester 19/10, draw 13/5, West Ham 29/10 – Match Betting).

David Moyes’ (pictured) men are currently fourth, level on points with Manchester United directly below but with a better goal difference than the Red Devils, who drew 1-1 at home with Southampton on Saturday.

After surviving a big scare last weekend in the FA Cup fourth round, when an injury-time Declan Rice goal and extra-time winner from Jarrod Bowen squeezed them past non-league Kidderminster, West Ham then won 1-0 against Watford in the week.

Rice, who has four goals so far this season, says he wants to find the back of the net more regularly ahead of the clash with the Foxes, who are down in a disappointing 13th place in the table, having lost three of their last five Premier league games.

Rice, who is 5/1 to score anytime on Sunday, told the club’s website: “I feel like I can score more goals, definitely. I feel like I can get forward more and feel like I can impact games more with passes and attacking outputs.

“I get into good positions in games and sometimes I pass the ball where top players of the past would have shot and scored, so I feel adding goals to my game is somewhere I can improve.

“The season is going really well so far. We’ve played a lot of games and we’re fourth in the Premier League, which is a real positive.”

At 14:00, second-placed Liverpool will hope to reduce Manchester City’s lead at the top down to nine points again with a win (2/9) at Burnley after City thrashed Norwich 4-0 on Saturday. The Clarets (14/1 – To win) are bottom, four points from safety, but do have games in hand on all the teams above and have drawn their last three league games.

Newcastle are seeking their third win on the trot to further ease their relegation worries when they host Aston Villa (Newcastle 15/8, draw 12/5, Villa 8/5 – Match Betting) in another of the 14:00 matches, while Tottenham, who are seventh, host eighth-placed Wolves in the other game. Spurs are 4/6 to win, Wolves are 5/1 and the draw is 11/4.
