West Ham stun Leicester with 3-0 win at King Power Stadium.

West Ham made it two wins in two games in the Premier League when they stunned Leicester 3-0 at the King Power Stadium.

After demolishing Wolves in Moyes’ absence last week, they wrecked Leicester’s hopes of winning four in a row and climbing for the top of the Premier League.

First-half goals from Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals put them in control and Jarrod Bowen grabbed the third, on the break eight minutes from time.

Leicester, having scored a dozen goals in their first three Premier League outings and five at Manchester City, rarely tested Lukasz Fabianski.

Goals from Antonio, Fornals and Jarrod Bowen gave the Hammers the win over Leicester at the King Power Stadium 

Jamie Vardy seemed certain to score when he was clean through with only Fabianski to beat in the last minute but he scooped the ball wide.

Harvey Barnes scored in stoppage time only to see the consolation ruled out by VAR for offside.

West Ham, in contrast, were potent. Antonio led the line brilliantly, creating chances and threatening Kasper Schmeichel.

It was their second win in the Premier League since Moyes and two players, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen, tested positive for coronavirus almost two weeks ago

They were solid at the back, where wing-back Vladimir Coufal enjoyed a solid debut, causing problems on the break and growing in confidence.

The result lifted the Hammers to seventh while Leicester are in second position with nine points.
