Manuel Lanzini briefly halved the deficit with a free-kick but they were booed off at half-time, and although Andre Ayew pulled another back after the break Leicester repelled a late rally to claim all three points.

Kasper Schmeichel was at his very best to make a vital late save, while an terrible Ayew miss let Leicester off the hook and saw the match slip away from West Ham.

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

However the Hammers did not show any sign of improving their early game defensive frailties as they conceded three goals in the first half.

But they scored three goals in the first half. We created lots of chances. In this league, you can not afford to concede two goals in the first six or eight minutes.

"I think it is one where we set our stall out in terms of pressing teams high but I think the goals were paramount in giving us foothold in the game".

"It was Vardy from past year", Bilic said. With most the crowd hoping to see West Ham come out of the blocks quickly, what they saw was the reverse.

"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. Leicester had their first away win for 11 months, while the Hammers were left to curse their terrible defensive play in the first half and their bad luck in the second. Everything was there, passing, crosses, beating players one against one, but the ball didn't want to go in.

The Hammers needed someone to lead the charge in the second half and it fell to Ayew. "Overall, I'm trying to be objective, but if you watched the whole ninety minutes, we deserved something from the game".

Craig Shakespeare says hard work has been the key to Leicester's revival over the last few weeks. "We needed something from today [Saturday], heading in to the worldwide break - we can recharge the batteries now". "I'm not happy that we have to go behind to do it, but the training is really, really good and the intensity is high".

Huth was in the right place at the right time to block a goal-bound effort from Kouyate in another frantic passage of play in the Leicester box.

"You can call it poor finishing but we have to give huge credit to Kasper Schmeichel", Bilic said.
