Leicester 2 West Ham 2: Foxes turn corner, then concede from it

Leicester came from behind but conceded a last-minute goal from a set-piece to draw with West Ham.

Kurt Zouma was named in the Hammersā€™ starting line-up for the second time after footage emerged of him abusing his pet cat, but the central defender was withdrawn after complaining of illness in the warm-up.

Issa Diop replaced him and assisted the opening goal after ten minutes, sending Jarrod Bowen through for the forward to finish confidently.

The home fans feared the worst but Leicester slowly grew into the game and equalised from the penalty spot when Youri Tielemans converted after an Aaron Cresswell handball.

Ricardo Pereira completed the comeback with a diving header just before the hour mark to finish a back-post cross from Harvey Barnes, as the Foxes closed in on a first Premier League win since December 28.

But Craig Dawson salvaged a point for the Champions League-chasing Hammers by getting the decisive touch on a stoppage-time corner with his upper arm.
