West Ham must start seeing games out in light of worrying statistic

West Ham must start seeing games out in light of worrying statistic

Nevertheless, Pellegrini thought the progress his side have made was clear to see, adding: "I would answer similar - the same way as I did after the last game which we lost against Tottenham".

But Leicester finally drew level a minute from time, when Ndidi picked up the ball 25 yards from goal and his shot deflected off Balbuena and into the back of the net.

With the point, West Ham moved above Burnley in the Premier League table, but their winless run stretched to three games.

The match started better for Leicester, with the first ten minutes being totally under control by the home side.

"Foxes" fullback Daniel Amartey looked in considerable discomfort after tussling with West Ham's Michail Antonio, although replays showed that the Leicester player had gotten his foot stuck in the turf, and that was the cause of a very serious ankle injury.

And despite Leicester enduring similar difficulties of late, Hammers boss, Manuel Pellegrini, recognised that his side faced another stiff test: "All the games are hard in the Premier League because the teams have similar players and all of them have money to bring in good players".

"Until the final whistle you never know what will be the score". He is playing well and was at his best in this game, so it is hard. We must continue working and we are unlucky with the goals we are conceding.

Referee Michael Oliver quickly pulled out his red card.

Claude Puel surprisingly left star striker Jamie Vardy on the bench, despite the player announcing he was fit and ready on social media.

Leicester were constantly threatening the five-man backline of West Ham, but all of their attempts were stopping at Fabianski, or the woodwork. "I think we were unlucky until the end, but perhaps just lucky on the goal".
