Vardy, who is expected to lead England into the European Championships this summer opened the scoring for the Foxes in the first half but was dismissed after the break with his side still holding a slender lead.

Goals from Andy Carroll (from the penalty spot) and Aaron Cresswell put West Ham 2-1 up with minutes to go, but the hosts earned a point with a controversial spot kick of their own deep into injury time.

Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel del Castillo
Showed remarkable restraint in the face of what must have been an overwhelming desire to flatten the ref.


Carl Jenkinson
Defensively ok but too often in the second half when we needed him to be force going forwards the attack would break down from a lack of guile on his part.


Aaron Cresswell
Did ok and was instrumental in supporting the good work going forward on the left in the second half.


Winston Reid
Got caught out of position for the goals Iím afraid.


Angelo Ogbonna
His shaky 20 minutes coincided with the spell in which the damage was done.


Cheikhou Kouyate
Seemed to be in no-manís land for much of the game.


Mark Noble
Has been given a pivotal role in midfield and much went through him.


Reece Oxford
This wasnít the sort of game where his neutralising services were required and as a result the gae went on around him somewhat. Failed to track back for the first.


Dimitri Payet
The pick of the bunch and the goal was superbly taken.


Mauro Zarate
Usual blind alley stuff first half. Looked better coming in from wide in the second half.


Diafra Sakho
Must be wondering what he has to do before gaining a penalty.


Substitutes


Pedro Obiang
(Replaced Oxford) Useful debut. Like Payet he can spot a pass.


Manuel Lanzini
(Replaced Nolan) Enough useful touches to suggest that this may be a decent signing if he gets a run in the team.


Modibo Maiga
(Replaced Zarate) No significant contribution.


Darren Randolph
Did not play.


James Tomkins
Did not play.


Matthew Jarvis
Did not play.


Kevin Nolan
Did not play.
