West Ham host Leicester City on Monday night, looking to make it two wins from two at the start of the 2021/2022 Premier League season.
It will be the first time since 29th February 2020 that a capacity crowd will be allowed inside London Stadium to watch the Hammers, due to the global pandemic causing the majority of the previous 18 months to be played behind closed doors.
Leicester are also looking to make it the perfect start after beating Wolves 1-0 last weekend, while both clubs will be looking forward to Thursday’s Europa League group stage draw.
