WATCH | West Ham into Champions League places with Leicester win


West Ham kept their remarkable run of league form intact with a 3-2 win over Leicester City at the London Stadium this afternoon. 

David Moyes' side earned three points against their fellow Champions League hopefuls despite almost coughing up a 3-0 advantage.

Now up to fourth, Jesse Lingard ensured his goalscoring form continued with two inside the opening half.

His first was a particularly impressive effort, which left Kasper Schmeichel rooted to the spot.

Lingard, who has now scored in four successive Premier League games for the first time in his career, was on target again soon before half-time.

2-0 in front, Jarrod Bowen extended their advantage shortly after the break.

It was all one-way traffic, and West Ham looked like they would go 4-0 up but Isa Diop's was chalked out after a VAR review for offside.

Brendan Rodgers side Leicester, to their credit, ensured a nervous finish.

The impressive Kelechi Iheanacho scored twice - the first coming 20 minutes from time.

Although Iheanacho found the target again in added time, West Ham clung on to further enhance their European credentials.

The Hammers are now up to fourth - one point behind Leicester in third.
