Danny Drinkwater is available despite ruling himself out of England duty because of a minor ongoing injury, believed to be a groin problem. "They'll fall of their perch again - guaranteed - because they've done it once they'll do it again".

"Leicester's title defence has been mystifying at times, certainly under Claudio Ranieri, but their debut in the Champions League has continued the fairy tale".

"It's away from home where their season has particularly imploded, winless on their travels in more than a year and with just three points accumulated on the road".

West Ham skipper Mark Noble is ruled out against Leicester due to a dead leg. "It all points to a fixture that's simply brimming with possibilities".

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said he was impressed with Vardy's performance against Sevilla as the striker continues his resurgence after a lacklustre first half of the season. They really played extremely well, especially against Sevilla, when they got a great result for them and for English football in general.

Leicester were drawn against Atletico Madrid in the last eight earlier today, but Shakespeare insists that his side are fully focused on Saturday's Premier League clash with West Ham United.

Riyad Mahrez, Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy were all on target at the London Stadium against West Ham. It's not hard - there are good memories and nice memories but that's what they are.

Asked whether he dreamt of lifting the Champions League trophy, he said: "Yeah, you know, we achieved the impossible winning the Premier League and I'm sure no one would have thought we'd get this far in the Champions League, so why not dream?"

Nice feeling to beat Rafael Nadal thrice
Mladenovic will play the victor of a later match between 12th-seeded Venus Williams and No. 14 Elena Vesnina. Kyrgios's 6-4, 7-6 (3) victory was a tour de force, brimming with power and precision.

Think you can do better than Lawro? Buffon had just been part of Juventus' 1-0 win (3-0 aggregate) over Porto.

West Ham have the fifth worst home record in the division, losing six times. If other teams come here they will obviously have to be wary of that.

The Hammers, like Leicester, have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven league matches - only Bournemouth (nine games) are on a longer run.

Craig Shakespeare has warned Leicester City they can not allow their sensational Champions League exploits to affect their Premier League preparations.

Going off their domestic form, few would've predicted Leicester City to be the last of the five British teams standing in the Champions League this season.

Leicester have won all three of their matches under Shakespeare by a two-goal margin but are winless in their last 15 Premier League games on the road, failing to even score in the last four.

Probability of away win: 29%.
