West Ham United must learn from Manchester City defeat

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - West Ham United must learn from last weekend's defeat by champions Manchester City and approach Saturday's Premier League trip to Leicester City with confidence, goalkeeper Adrian has said.

Sunday's defeat was West Ham's second consecutive 4-1 loss in the league and left the London club in danger of being dragged further into the relegation battle during the run-in.

West Ham sit three points and positions above 18th-placed Southampton with three league games left in the campaign.

Adrian, 31, replaced Joe Hart in goal after the heavy defeat at Arsenal the previous week but the change failed to shore up West Ham's leaky defence as they suffered another drubbing by City.

Despite the result, the Spaniard is hopeful of being in contention to start at Leicester.

To add to West Ham's worries, British media reported that striker Andy Carroll was sent home from training on Monday after an argument with manager David Moyes, leaving the 29-year-old's participation in the climax to the season uncertain.

Leicester are ninth in the standings and have lost three of their last four league games, the most recent of which was last weekend's 5-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.
