    Focus needs to be reset as our next Prem game is only days away. It's as important, in a different way, as the CL match last night. We're only 3 points above relegation but only a couple of wins from mid-table. A victory will suck West Ham back to a similar position to us (3 pts ahead but played a game more).

    Can our team concentrate on this one? Are they fit enough to play again only a few days after their euphoric win. Does Shakey need to tinker? Can he tinker?

    These are some of the important questions that we'll find answers to this weekend.

    I'm guessing it'll be exactly the same team as for Sevilla but I'm not sure they have it in them to reproduce the necessary standard of play needed for a much needed victory. I'd consider 2 or 3 changes but I can't see it happening.

    Play the same starting line up, ask them to give it all and sub 2 at h/t

    No reason to change anything unless fitness is an issue which I can't imagine it will be. A winning team could play 3 games a week.

    I'm worried that the brilliance of what we have experienced in the CL will mean this being an easy defeat.

    I must say the league is not getting my heart racing at the moment.

    Unless we pick up at least six points from the four matches between now and the quarter final, the shadow of relegation will seriously dilute everything.

    This is a massive game to win or certainly not lose.

    Is a draw enough?

    With a draw we could be back to 1 point above relegation.

    I'd take a draw from this one, expecting 4 wins in a row after our form before may be a bit much!

    Would be amazing to get our first away win but think we need to wait a bit longer.

    It would also be our first double of the season too.
    And there won't be too many of those this season.

    I don't want to call this one... but I think a win isn't beyond us. WH are pretty hit and miss, ManCity tore them apart for instance. It's the sort of game that we should be looking to win rather than avoid defeat in. Play our energetic front foot pressing game and I reckon we could beat them. Is Andy Carol fit? He's a handful but actually makes them a tad more predictable imho, and we could deal with the aerial/physical threat he possesses.

    Tuesday night will have been emotionally draining though - not to say physically. Saturday will be back to the day job so it's a matter of whether our guys can lift themselves sufficiently to get into WH. To lose would not be unexpected for any team under the circumstances. Barcelona lost to lowly Deportivo after their Champions League exploits against PSG. It happens.

    It is a big pitch isn't it?

    Plenty of spaces for Vardy, Mahrez and Okazaki to run around in to stretch them out.

    3-1 City!

    If you include the running track then it's enormous! It must be pretty soulless watching football there but having never been there I can't really say. I've only seen it on the tele. I used to enjoy the atmosphere in the Boleyn Ground though. One of those kind of shoebox stadiums.

    I don't want to ask too much of my team, a dull 0-0 and I wouldn't complain. 72-0 of course is what I'm really asking for.

    West Ham 0 Leicester 1 (Eadie)

    The way im looking at things is 11 prem games left and 13 points needed for the magic 40 point total, im expecting the majority of points to be won at home so any away points i see as a bonus. With a break looming i see no reason to rest players now and would therefore name an unchanged team.Id like Armrtey to get some playing time alonside Wes as i see him ending up there permanently soon (certainly during Huths absence), id also like to see Gray given some pitch action I would be happy with a point, but perform like last few games we can win this 0-1 Vardy
