West Ham United v Leicester City

The problems are piling up for West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, whose side have lost their last three matches and could yet find themselves in the relegation scrap.

The Foxes also finally collected their first Premier League away victory of the season with a 3-2 success at West Ham. I think we deserved at least a point.

New boss Craig Shakespeare has a flawless record so far, with two 3-1 victories before the historic European Cup night at the King Power - and has mostly a fully-fit squad to choose from.

West Ham were dealt another blow after a quarter of an hour when captain Winston Reid went down clutching his leg and had to be replaced. Read about West Ham vs Leicester City live score updates, live streaming and team news on this page.

Lanzini put a smile straight back on West Ham faces, however, with a perfectly placed free-kick a minute later to make it 2-1.

The home side pushed men forward late in search of the equalizer and had some excellent chances as Schmeichel stopped Carroll from close range twice in the final 15 minutes to assure his side claimed all three points.

Danny Drinkwater fouled Michail Antonio 25 yards in front of goal, giving the Argentinian the opportunity to curl the ball over the wall and into the top corner, with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel not even moving.

It is not the first time the Croatian is going through this procedure, he had his other hip replaced five years ago showing that his playing career is really taking its toll on his body, as he now needs his other one doing, according to the Sun.

Not that the change unsettled Leicester in any way as the champions motored into a two-goal lead within seven minutes.

The West Ham United scored 33 points in the 28 play in this Premier League season.

"We said once the Champions League draw was made let's concentrate on the Premier League".

They doubled it just two minutes later, as this time Robert Huth found himself on the end of an exceptional outside-of-the-boot flick from Mark Albrighton for an easy finish, stunning the West Ham faithful.
