    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    West Ham's 10 men are still trying but Leicester look like they are seeing this one out. Just seconds left...

  3. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    West Ham need to get the ball forward quickly. They do that, but it runs through to Kasper Schmeichel.

  4. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Hammers defender Carl Jenkinson has gone in goal for the last few seconds.

  5. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    It was Jamie Vardy who Adrian caught with a high boot. Referee Anthony Taylor was right next to it too.

    West Ham keeper Adrian has been sent off for a high challenge after coming up for a corner.

  7. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    The Hammers are pouring forward now... but it's the same old problem because they cannot turn their possession into chances.


    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Both teams make a change as we enter the last 10 minutes.

    For West Ham, Mauro Zarate is off and replaced by Modibo Maiga. For Leicester, Christian Fuchs replaces Riyad Mahrez. 

  9. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Leicester get lucky here. The ball breaks for Diafra Sakho inside the box but his shot is straight at Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel from six yards out.


    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Hammers boss Slaven Bilic decides it is time to make a change. Manuel Lanzini is on for Cheikhou Kouyate to bring some new ideas to the home side's midfield.

  11. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Leicester have done next to nothing in attack since the break but they have burst into life here. Danny Drinkwater should do far better when he finds space in the area but leans back and lifts his shot over the bar. A waste.

  12. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    It was very nearly worth the wait, though. Marc Albrighton ghosted in at the far post but scooped his volley horribly off target.

  13. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Speaking of Dimitri Payet, he has switched with Mauro Zarate and is now wide out on the left. Zarate is being given licence to roam... or at least he will be when play resumes. Leicester are taking an eternity to take a corner.

  14. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    As well as scoring his side's goal Dimitri Payet has seen a lot more of the ball in this second half and it looks like Slaven Bilic's reshuffle has had an effect. The Hammers are coming forward with purpose now, rather than looking ponderous in possession.

    Dimitri Payet scores for West Ham

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Another Leicester change - Ritchie De Laet has been struggling against Mauro Zarate since the restart and he is being replaced at right-back by Yohan Benalouane.

  16. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    That Leicester substitution means Jamie Vardy is now their only striker. They definitely needed reinforcements further back because the Hammers are still pushing hard and still attacking down the left flank.


    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    Time for a Leicester change. Foxes striker Shinji Okazaki picked up a knock in the first half and he is being replaced by summer signing N'Golo Kante.

  18. Post update

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    The West Ham fans are making a lot of noise all of a sudden and their team look a completely different proposition - finding space down the flanks and firing in some dangerous crosses. Mauro Zarate is seeing a lot of the ball out on the left and Diafra Sakho has just had a header kept out by Kasper Schmeichel.

  19. GOAL

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester (Dimitri Payet, 54 mins)

    Hope for the Hammers? You betcha. At last the home side find an end product - Dimitri Payet's first effort is blocked by his own player Diafra Sakho but Cheikhou Kouyate rolls it back into his path and he makes no mistake second time around, firing high into the net.

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    This time the Hammers do force Kasper Schmeichel into a save, but Mauro Zarate's effort from the left-hand side of the area is from such a tight angle it might as well have been a cross.

  21. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    Diafra Sakho goes down in the box as he tries to get on the end of an Aaron Cresswell cross. He had hold of Wes Morgan, who also had hold of him. Referee Anthony Taylor awards a goal-kick.

  22. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    West Ham continue to have all the possession - 64% in the second half so far. They are still unable to do anything of note with it, though.

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    Leicester are defending in numbers at the start of the second half. Who can blame them, with a 2-0 lead to protect.

  24. KICK-OFF

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    Leicester get the second half under way.


    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    The Hammers have made a change at the break - Reece Oxford is off, perhaps to focus on getting his GCSE results on Thursday. Pedro Obiang is on for his debut.


    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

  27. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    West Ham have been poor in this first half but they should have a penalty here. Diafra Sakho goes to ground after colliding with Kasper Schmeichel as he chases a ball into the penalty area. The referee is unimpressed but Sakho was definitely caught there, even if the ball had run away from him. 

  28. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    Another West Ham attack down the left, another disappointing finish. Cheikhou Kouyate clips a shot goalwards but that is never going to trouble Kasper Schmeichel.

  29. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    Aaron Cresswell down the left has been West Ham's biggest threat so far, which is not saying an awful lot. He does well again here, getting into the area before sending in a low cross that Mauro Zarate tries to spin on to, but ends up putting the ball straight out of play.

  30. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    The Leicester fans are singing Claudio Ranieri's name now, as half-time approaches. It hasn't taken him long to win them over, has it?

    West Ham's supporters are a lot more subdued, as you would expect given the way this game has gone.

  31. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    West Ham's first effort on goal for, er, quite a while. A cross comes in from the left and Cheikhou Kouyate rises at the back post but cannot direct his header on target.

  32. Post update

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester

    "We are top of the league" sing the Leicester fans, and they are right.

    Leicester celebrate
  33. GOAL

    West Ham 0-2 Leicester (Riyad Mahrez, 36mins)

    Questions have to be asked about the Hammers defending here, although this is a wonderful finish. Shinji Okazaki and Marc Albrighton combine on the left before Albrighton finds Riyad Mahrez running into the box to sweep home a powerful first-time finish for his third goal of the season.

    Riyad Mahrez
  34. Post update

    West Ham 0-1 Leicester

    Leicester continue to look more dangerous when they come forward. Angelo Ogbonna hauls back Shinji Okazaki and that's a free-kick to the Foxes about 40 yards out. Ogbonna heads clear but the Hammers remain under pressure.

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy was this week given a "substantial" fine and ordered to undergo diversity awareness training after allegedly abusing a Japanese man in a casino.

  36. Post update

    West Ham 0-1 Leicester

    The Foxes are coming forward in search of more goals and Marc Albrighton has just had a shot blocked from the edge of the area. The Hammers are wobbling a bit here... they have not responded well to going behind.

  37. GOAL

    West Ham 0-1 Leicester (Shinji Okazaki, 26 mins)

    Leicester went close from the corner following that Riyad Mahrez chance but they do not have to wait long to take the lead. 

    Jamie Vardy clips a lovely ball into the box from the left and although Adrian does well to keep out Shinji Okazaki's first effort on the volley, the Japanese striker reacts quickly to head the loose ball home.

    Shinji Okazaki
  38. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    Riyad Mahrez had a daisy-cutter from distance for Leicester earlier but he has just gone a lot closer, dancing into the box, swerving a couple of challenges and eventually being denied at close range by Adrian. Unlucky.

  39. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has been stood on the edge of his technical area for the entire game, offering encouragement to his players. His West Ham counterpart Slaven Bilic has been doing the same, only 'slightly' more animated. (That's not Bilic in the picture by the way)

    Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri
  40. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    The Hammers are still on top in terms of possession, enjoying 66.7% of the ball so far. They are not making it count in terms of chances, though. Every time they have got behind the Leicester defence (which is twice), the flag has gone up for offside.

  41. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    That Reece Oxford header has been the only meaningful effort on goal at either end in the first 15 minutes. 

    Leicester went on the attack in the first half hour against Sunderland last week but they seem to be concentrating on defence this time.

  42. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    Adrian needed lengthy treatment there, but he is OK to carry on. Jamie Vardy had every right to make that challenge, but his foot was very high.


    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    Jamie Vardy is the first man in the referee's book, catching West Ham keeper Adrian as he jumped to try to block his clearance after the Spaniard came dashing out of his box to clear a bouncing through-ball.

  44. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    The Hammers are still spraying the ball around nicely and Diafra Sakho has just forced a corner down the left. Aaron Cresswell tried to get on the end of it but it was cleared by Shinji Okazaki.

  45. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    Leicester's first real foray forward sees Shinji Okazaki break into the area down the right but he is off balance and his cross is easily cleared.

  46. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    The Hammers have had all the ball so far. More than 83% of possession in fact.

  47. CLOSE!

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    Dimitri Payet fires the free-kick in and man-of-the-monent (or boy-of-the-moment) Reece Oxford is on the end of it at the back post. It comes off his head and takes a touch off Foxes defender Wes Morgan as it flies over the bar. That could have gone anywhere.

  48. Post update

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    The Hammers are first to attack and they have a free-kick on the left of the Leicester box after Andy King fouls Mark Noble...

  49. KICK-OFF

    West Ham 0-0 Leicester

    A quick blast of 'We're forever blowing bubbles' and the Hammers get us under way.

    We are on the final countdown now... the players are out on the pitch and doing their final few stretches in the east London sunshine.

    Both of these teams won last weekend of course... and they are also both looking to win their opening two top-flight games for the first time since 1997.

    West Ham v Leicester (15:00 BST)

    This is West Ham's first home game in their final season at Upton Park so they are celebrating with some fireworks... well, some streamers anyway.

    There are plenty of bubbles too, but that is just standard in these parts.

  52. Capital punishment

    West Ham v Leicester (15:00 BST)

    Leicester have failed to win any of their last 20 Premier League matches played in London and lost on all six of their visits to the capital last season, but could this be a good time to put that right?

  55. Lawro's prediction

    West Ham v Leicester (15:00 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Football Analyst

    Lineker will no doubt be pleased to hear that Lawro is backing Leicester to come out on top this week too.

    In his weekly predictions, Lawro says: "The Foxes have a lot of pace and energy in wide areas and, if they keep on playing this attacking style they used against Sunderland, they will win a lot more games than they lose.

    "West Ham were brilliant when they beat Arsenal but I am going for a shock result against them here."
