West Ham 2-3 Leicester City: Schmeichel outfoxes Hammers to another defeat

Garry Little | 19 March, 2017, 00:41

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has urged the club's fans on social networking site Twitter not to leave their seats empty for the game against Leicester City.

Leicester City's decision to part with Claudio Ranieri was widely condemned, but the Foxes have been rejuvenated under his successor Craig Shakespeare.

Alistair Mann: "Thoughts of Atletico Madrid will somehow have to be discarded as Leicester have four demanding league fixtures before they can once again indulge in a little fantasy football".

Leicester initially showed few signs of weariness following their Champions League exploits against Sevilla on Tuesday, stunning West Ham with a brilliant start which saw them two goals up inside seven minutes thanks to Riyad Mahrez and Robert Huth.

But it was The Foxes' Jamie Vardy who was included in the latest England squad, announced on Thursday, alongside veteran Jermain Defoe and youngster Marcus Rashford, although he has only found the back of the net twice in his last nine Premier League appearances.

Bilic has been dealt a blow ahead of the fixture as captain Mark Noble has been ruled out with a dead leg.

West Ham haven't been in the game at all but now it's game on.

The West Ham United is standing at the 11th position and Leicester City is standing at the 15th spot.

Even though West Ham are not in the best of form, Leicester will come back down to earth with a leggy performance in a 1-1 draw.

What is the latest West Ham team news?

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.

"We are very disappointed, we fought back and we can talk about a lot of positives, especially from the second half", he told Sky Sports.

Since his debut in September 2012, Andy Carroll has appeared in just 94 of West Ham's 178 Premier League matches (53%) and played just 40% of possible minutes (6472).

Leicester are unbeaten in five league and cup matches against West Ham, winning four of them.

"We knew that they had a momentum and of course they are a good side who were underachieving this season".

"We showed all the attributes to win a game".
