GOAL FLASH!

West Ham United 2-0 Leicester City

(44′ mins): Leicester upped the tempo – Iheanacho’s effort was blocked after good work from Youri Tielemans – West Ham content to play on the break as the proverbial game of ‘cat and mouse’ continued.

And that tactic served the Hammers well. Bowen springing the off-side, squaring wide of Schmeichel to Lingard, who rolled home his eighth goal in nine outings into an empty net.
