West Ham vs Leicester City Odds & Pick The second week of 2021/22 Premier League football comes to an end on Monday night, when Leicester City travel to east London to take on West Ham United. The two teams both made perfect starts to the new campaign, with the Hammers bagging a 4-2 win over Newcastle United in an electric affair at St James’ Park, and the Foxes edging to a 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
After its foundation they received the nickname of Fossils, since the first name of the team was Leicester Fosse. After moving to Filbert Street and swapping the Fosse for the City, they became known for a few years as Filberts.
Their current nickname, Foxes, is inspired by the fox hunting tradition of the Leicestershire area and, of course, by the adoption of a new emblem for the club. The rather simple fox design first appeared on Leicester City jerseys in the 1948-49 season.
West Ham vs Leicester City Odds & Pick: how to watch? The club was founded in 1895 and did so under the name Thames Ironworks FC, as the idea came from the owner of the Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Company. Around 1900 it would adopt the current name of West Ham United. His industrial roots led him to adopt the nicknames of Irons or Hammers, by which they are universally known.
There was little to separate the two clubs last year. The Foxes finished fifth in the league table, just one place and one point above the Hammers. There will be little to separate them again on Monday, but what shape are the two sides in heading into the final match of gameweek two?

Both the Hammers and the Foxes will be raring to go after their opening day victories, but only one of them can continue their 100% start to the new campaign. West Ham fans will want to give their side the edge, but Leicester boast so much quality across the pitch. This one genuinely could go either way, but we fancy Rodgers’ men to just about sneak it in an entertaining battle. Whatever happens though, it won’t be a stroll in the park for either European hopeful.
