Senegal Star Salvages A Point For Struggling West Ham

English Premier League

Result: West Ham United 1-1 Leicester City

Date: 24 November 2017

Venue: London Stadium

David Moyes claimed his first point as West Ham United manager, after the Hammers drew 1-1 with Leicester City at the London Stadium.

The visitors broke the deadlock after eight minutes as Jamie Vardy's low cross found Marc Albrighton, who slotted into the bottom corner from 12-yards out, 0-1.

The goal seemed to have dampened the spirits of the West Ham players as the Foxes continued to dominate much to the displeasure of the home supporters.

Kasper Schmeichel came to Leicester's rescue as he did well to keep out Manuel Lanzini's stinging free-kick from a tight angle midway through the first way.

The Hammers started enjoying more of the ball in the final 10 minutes of the first half, and they managed to level matters one minute before the break as Cheikhou Kouyate headed home Lanzini's corner, 1-1.

David Moyes' charges continued from where they left it off in the first half, although they were let down by their crossing in the opening 15 minutes of the second stanza.

West Ham opted for a change on 68 minutes as Ghana international Andre Ayew was introduced in place of Marko Arnautovic.

The flow of the second half was interrupted by a number of stoppages, which was a direct result of the lack of clear-cut chances.

The tempo increased in the final 10 minutes of the second half with the Hammers looking the liveliest. However, neither side could find a winning goal and were forced to share the spoils.
