Goodbye - and what a game!

Well, that was a match and a half. Thanks for keeping us company. 

The developing report can be read here while you can follow all the reaction to Saturday's Premier League games here.

Cheerio.

FULL-TIME

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

No chance. Kasper Schmeichel holds on to yet another ball in the box and Leicester can play out the final throws to cling on for a huge victory.

What a match. What a rearguard from the Foxes and especially Schmeichel.

And breathe...

GREAT SAVE!

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Drama up the other end now as replacement Islam Slimani is played in behind and running clear on goal only for Darren Randolph to stay big and keep out his admittedly tame effort.

Any last chance for West Ham?

'Identical to his dad'

If that was back in 1994 it would have been Peter Schmeichel.

His son has made a save identical to his dad. The bravery, his strength! He bats it out of the box - that's how strong he is! 

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Two minutes of added time to go....

GREAT SAVE!

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Oh my word, what a save from Kasper Schmeichel!

Robert Snodgrass' free-kick squirms it's way through to Andy Carroll, who thumps an effort from inside six yards, only for Schmeichel to stay tall and keep it out.

Tremendous rearguard effort from the Dane.

All eyes are on the board as it's held up, reading six minutes!

Ndidi hacks down Ayew to give West Ham another free-kick in a good place.

Snodgrass hovers over it...

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Well Benalouane did leave, but they insisted he came back on and has...so Mahrez does indeed come off for Chilwell.

All very odd - perhaps a bit of trickery as well - but we're back under way...

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Yohan Benalouane's league debut looks to be coming to a very painful end.

The centre-back falls under the challenge of Andy Carroll and comes up clutching his wrist.

Riyad Mahrez was about to come off for Ben Chilwell but looks like Craig Shakespeare may have to amend his plans now...

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Another corner. Another goalmouth scramble. Kouyate has a swing at the ball but Drinkwater makes a vital block before a deflected effort from Andy Carroll is gathered up by Schmeichel.

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Another corner for West Ham. Another towering catch from Kasper Schmeichel.

The Dane has been great today.

CLOSE!

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Was that the chance? How does Andre Ayew miss this?!

It's fantastic work from Michail Antonio yet again as he slips in Ayew, completely unmarked and all of 10 yards out - only for the Hammers forward to skew his effort high and wide.

Massive let-off for Leicester. Can they hold on here? They can barely string a pass together now.

GREAT SAVE!

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Oooof. One where you're glad that they've got goal-line technology now.

Andre Ayew's cross to the back post sees Andy Carroll rising to head firmly towards the bottom corner only for Kasper Schmeichel to claw it out and away.

The Leicester keeper was behind the line when he made his save but, crucially, the ball wasn't.

The Hammers are fittingly hammering away at Leicester now.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

All change up top for Leicester as Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy are replaced by Islam Slimani and Ahmed Musa.

Attack the best defence? Or more likely trying to catch out West Ham on the counter as they push for an equaliser.

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Yet more promising play from the Hammers, roared on by the home crowd, but both times a good move down the right falls down on a poor final ball.

Leicester rocking slightly but still on their feet.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Slaven Bilic makes his final change as Arthur Masuaku comes on for Aaron Cresswell.

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Clumsy foul by Wilfred Ndidi on Michail Antonio to give West Ham yet another promising free-kick down the left...

...this time Leicester hold firm to head away and clear.

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Excellent block from Aaron Cresswell as Riyad Mahrez looked set to wrap a left-foot effort into the bottom corner.

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

And Fernandes is instantly involved as West Ham break up the right only for Benalouane to make a vital tackle on the substitute.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

It's the young Swiss Edimilson Fernandes on for the injured Obiang.

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Pedro Obiang looks in trouble here - his foot catches the ground as he attempts to tackle Riyad Mahrez and instantly knows he's done himself some damage.

The Hammers midfielder is being taken off on a stretcher. 

Ayew heads Hammers' second

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

...it really wasn't too far out for Lanzini as his free-kick forces Kasper Schmeichel to tip it round his post just to make sure.

From the resulting corner, that man Andy Carroll gets up at the back post to head it across for Andre Ayew to head in, with Schmeichel unable to get a solid enough palm away.

In store for a frantic finale now...

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Shinji Okazaki isn't happy but is penalised for a foul about 30 to 35 yards out.

It looks a little too far for Manuel Lanzini...

CLOSE!

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Jamie Vardy is very fast. So fast he easily out-sprints Sam Byram to run onto Riyad Mahrez's delicate through ball and ensures Darren Randolph is left stranded.

Unfortunately the finish doesn't match his pace as his attempted chip falls wide but a slightly better touch and that would've been Leicester's fourth.

YELLOW CARD

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

An ugly lunge from Danny Drinkwater on Cheikhou Kouyate sees the Leicester midfielder duly shown a yellow card.

It wasn't pretty but just about controlled enough to ensure nothing worse than a booking followed.

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

It's been a very quiet start to the second half so far, which suits Leicester for the moment.

West Ham have to make all the running if they want a route back into this game.

Robert Snodgrass tries to spark something with a chipped cross towards Andre Ayew but Kasper Schmeichel comes and claims. 

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Just as I wrote that, Benalouane has just tried to beat Randolph from miles out with a free-kick.

The Hammers keeper saw it coming though and rocked back to catch the centre-back's ambitious effort.

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Yohan Benalouane has had very, very little to do on his Premier League debut.

He's just been spoken to by referee Roger East for a slightly clumsy foul, which is the most notable thing he's done so far.

No Wes, no problem at the moment for the Foxes.

Second half underway

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Here we go again...

Magic Marc

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Just watching replays of Leicester's second goal - it's a stunning chip in from Marc Albrighton that leads to Robert Huth's header.

The winger cuts across Riyad Mahrez's short pass to fire it in with the outside of his right boot.

He was completely unmarked but it's tremendous skill.

HALF-TIME

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

And that's that for the first half.

Boos ring out from the West Ham fans. Cheers from the travelling Leicester fans.

For the neutral though a cracking, captivating game of football so far.

More of the same in the second half please. Or maybe a little less manic would be better.

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

...it's a dangerous inswinging corner but Kasper Schmeichel punches well and Leicester clear.

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Shinji Okazaki makes a blind reverse pass straight to Andre Ayew, who runs at the Leicester defence.

The ball is worked out to Aaron Cresswell before his cross is deflected away for a corner...

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Four minutes of added time.

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Leicester try another set-piece trick but this time Lanzini is wise to the danger, cutting out Albrighton's attempted through ball before surging up the other end only to run into the hulking figure of Huth.

Albrighton then cuts in and is given far too much room to shoot but his effort isn't troubling Randolph.

Breakneck football.

CLOSE!

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Manuel Lanzini almost gets West Ham back into the game once again with a well-struck effort from 25 yards but it falls a couple of yards wide of the post.

There could even be more goals in this game before half-time.

Vardy restores Foxes two-goal lead

West Ham 1-3 Leicester

Just as West Ham had found their way back into this game, that man Jamie Vardy puts Leicester two goals in front again.

It's a corner from Marc Albrighton that pings around the six-yard box with the hosts unable to clear before Vardy pounces to strike high past Darren Randolph.

That's only a second away league goal of the season for Vardy.
