Always difficult to go down to London and play West Ham and on a Monday they are even more difficult as their stats are ugly to look at from a Leicester point of view, and with the track record Leicester have on the same day, then you could have gone home before the game started.

Leicester started positivily but when Fornals found the net after 26 minutes with a great goal and one touch play, this looked difficult as Leicester with a bit of possession never managed to get anything happening in front of goal and shorts were either blocked or going wide.

The game went a bit left and right with a lot going on in the middle and then to see Ayoze Perez doing what he is doing after 40 minutes, you start to wonder if this is really happening, it was so idiotic totally out of order and why do something like that, it’s madness.

Leicester were reduced to ten and then you know all of this would be very, very difficult.

Coming out second half a bit hope was there, but with a stupid mistake again happening, and this time Caglar Soyuncu doing totally strange backpass and again a new and hopeless pass which gave West Ham the opportunity to score even more, 2-0 up and this was really finished.

But then with 21 minutes left Youri Tielemans managed to get one back with a couple of tries and getting it over the line and again giving Leicester hope for a draw, which would have been a lot to ask for considering this performance.

When the hope was there, we got a knock from Michail Antonio showing his great strength hammering the ball over the line and just showing his hulk presence, a real good striker a bit old school, but great to watch even when you are following the opposition.

Soumare and Daka both came on, as well as Iheanacho but instead of being a better side everything collapsed as West Ham managed to score a fourth, and again it was Antonio hammering the ball over the line.

This was a step in the wrong direction, but to be honest, seeing that very deserved red card in a crazy tackle by Ayoze Perez you just start to feel sick, because it’s just a rubbish decision by the player to go all in and stamp a player that way, there are no words to describe such an action, just awful.

Ok so Brendan Rodgers cannot play the same team in the next game with Perez out, but this will and should pave the way for Marc Albrighton who in my view should be given that starting position, he has a good foot and one we need to serve Jamie Vardy or Harvey Barnes with his clever passes.

Next up is Norwich away and that will be a bit of a banana skin with The Canaries not yet any points, but of course playing Liverpool and Man City in the first two will not give you much.

  • Positives
    • Kasper Schmeichel making a number of brilliant saves
    • Youri Tielemans scoring a goal
