Highlights : West Ham Settle With 2 – 2 Draw With Leicester, Thanks To Barnes Late Goal

West Ham United Vs Leicester City  Football Highlights

(Premier League) 

Venue : London Stadium

Key Moments Recap :
GOAL : 37′ Michail Antonio 1 – 0
Antonio gets his goal! He has had a busy first half and deserves that opener.
It’s a superb cross into the area from Noble on the left and Antonio rises above Chilwell to power the ball past a leaping Schmeichel.

He runs to the touchline to stroke the new claret artificial turf surrounding the pitch. Very nice it is too, just like that goal!

GOAL : 67′ 1 – 1 Jamie Vardy
Out of nothing really, Leicester are back level!
Maguire feeds Chilwell down the left-hand side and he whips a low ball into the area. Vardy is there, waiting, and is ahead of Balbuena to slot home.

Balbuena has generally done well today but that is poor positioning.

Goal : 
82′ Lucas Perez 2 – 1
Obiang’s initial strike is fierce, but cannons onto the crossbar, with the rebound falling to Perez who slots home with aplomb to put West Ham back ahead.

The Leicester players are not happy at all and surround Lee Probert, calling for offside, but the goal stands. Replays show Pereira looks to have just played Perez on for that one.

GOAL : 90′ 2 – 2 Harvey Barnes
A wonderful goal from Leicester and Barnes produces a wonderful finish for his first Premier League goal.
Tielemans slips the 21-year-old through, cutting through the West Ham defence, and he hits home across the goalkeeper to surely snatch a late draw for Leicester

Man Of The Match : 

Stats :

  • West Ham have only managed one victory in their last nine encounters with Leicester in all competitions (W1 D3 L5), a 2-0 away win in May 2018.

  • Leicester have won two of their last three league trips to West Ham (D1), as many as their previous 29 visits (W2 D6 L21).
  • West Ham have scored in 22 of their last 23 home league games against Leicester City (W17 D3 L3), only failing to score in a 1-0 defeat at the Boleyn Ground in August 2000.
  • Since winning 3-2 at West Ham in March 2017, Leicester have won just one of their last 12 Premier League games in London (D4 L7), winning 1-0 at Chelsea earlier this season.
  • West Ham have lost their last three Premier League games, last losing four in a row in their opening four matches under Manuel Pellegrini this season.
  • West Ham have only lost one of their last seven home league games (W4 D2), though it was against Everton in their last match at the London Stadium.
  • West Ham have picked up just four points from their last 27 available against sides starting the day in the top half of the table (W1 D1 L7), with the Hammers scoring just three goals in that run.
  • Leicester are looking to win three consecutive Premier League away games for the first time since April 2016.
  • West Ham’s top league scorer this season Felipe Anderson is looking to score in consecutive Premier League games for the first time since November.
