Leicester City end 11-month away win Drought

Albrighton's delivery was allowed to reach Vardy in front of goal and the England striker swivelled to smash the ball high past Darren Randolph.

Leicester City have won all seven Premier League matches that they have been leading this season and are the only side yet to drop a point from a winning position. "I think we showed all them today aligned with some good footballers".

Craig Shakespeare, take a bow: The caretaker boss has guided the Foxes to four wins from four matches, including an historic victory over Sevilla and the club's first away win of the season.

The Senegal worldwide should not necessarily be axed from the starting eleven completely, as he is still one of West Ham's strongest performers.

But it did rock West Ham and the visitors capitalised ruthlessly.

Leicester were forced into a significant change to their preferred line-up, with captain Wes Morgan ruled out by a back injury sustained against Sevilla.

During a couple of moments, they have Kasper Schmeichel who is in great form anyway. It's very frustrating. We can talk about a lot of positives, but we have to talk because we have lost the game and we have to talk about a lot of negatives at the beginning of the game.

In this league, you can not afford to concede two goals in the first six or eight minutes.

Leicester had to dig deep for a while as West Ham peppered their area with crosses, but then took advantage of some more dire defending by the hosts, this time from a corner.

West Ham by contrast have had a full week to prepare for the match, but they head into the contest following back-to-back league defeats to Chelsea and Bournemouth.

After that early one-two punch, Leicester played football worthy of their status as champions, drawing the Hammers out of shape with their passing.

"We said once the Champions League draw was made let's concentrate on the Premier League".

"We knew that they had a momentum and of course they are a good side who were underachieving this season".

Meanwhile, Leicester, who won the Premier League title last season, are now 15th in the standings with 27 points from 27 matches, just three points above the relegation zone.

Ayew and Michail Antonio fired wide and Andy Carroll had a goal ruled out, correctly, for offside as West Ham sensed they could haul themselves back into the game.
