West Ham Utd 2-3 Leicester City

By: Staff Writer


A typically-dreadful start condemned the Hammers to yet another defeat at the Olympic Stadium - against a side yet to win away from home in the league all season.

Leicester raced into a two-goal lead - thanks to efforts from Mahrez and Huth - inside just SEVEN minutes, as West Ham's shaky defence was breached with consummate ease yet again.

And although the Hammers managed to pull a goal back through Manuel Lanzini on 20 minutes, City restored their two-goal lead ahead of the half time break through Jamie Vardy.




Andre Ayew gave the Hammers a glimmer of hope when he halved the deficit 18 minutes after the restart, but the Foxes were able to hang on and record an unexpected victory.
