Ghana defender Jeff Schlupp is confident his English Premier League side Leicester City will be able to defeat in-form West Ham United whose blistering form saw them defeating Arsenal on the opening day.

Defender Carl Jenkinson is available to face Leicester after being ineligible to play against parent club Arsenal last weekend.

Pedro Obiang could make his league debut but Joey O?Brien, Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia remain sidelined.

Leicester?s Matty James is out with a knee injury but otherwise Claudio Ranieri has a fully fit squad.

Forward Jamie Vardy is expected to start despite being fined by the club for making an alleged racial slur.

Schlupp says Leicester are high on confidence ahead of Saturday?s match.

?I think the players are looking forward to it,? said Schlupp.

?We may have surprised a few with our results.?

These two teams both got great results over the opening weekend but it is Leicester who are likely to win on Saturday.

The Foxes have a lot of pace and energy in wide areas and, if they keep on playing this attacking style they used against Sunderland, they will win a lot more games than they lose.

West Ham were brilliant when they beat Arsenal but they are facing a more determined opponent in Leicester.
