Leicester continue good form with dramatic win at West Ham

'The next few games now become vital for our season.

David Sullivan has apologised to West Ham's fans following the 3-2 defeat at home to Leicester.

Among the banners in the home section was one which read' Long Live The Boleyn' in homage to the club's old stadium as they struggle to settle into their controversial new one.

The English Premier League champions on Saturday secured their first away win of the season in the 3-2 defeat of West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium.

City striker Jamie Vardy had scored just a hat-trick against Manchester City in his previous 26 games before today. Leicester are ahead! Mahrez curls a cross into the penalty area, it misses everyone and ends up in the back of the net!

The Foxes showed no signs of a European hangover following their epic win over Sevilla, and although they may have a quarter-final meeting with Atletico Madrid on their minds Shakespeare knows they still need to get their domestic affairs in order.

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

Manuel Lanzini briefly halved the deficit with a free-kick but West Ham were booed off at half-time, and although Andre Ayew pulled another back after the break Leicester resisted a late rally to claim all three points.

Towering centre back Robert Huth doubled the lead for the away side he headed in a 7th minute corner by Marc Albrighton.

'I always felt we just needed to get 1-0 up in a game.

The Foxes scored twice inside the first seven minutes, with Riyad Mahrez's cross evading Hammers goalkeeper Darren Randolph for the first.

Kasper Schmeichel somehow managed to save a Carroll header from point-blank range in the 77th minute, and then spectacularly denied Carroll again after a deflected free kick left him 5 yards out with no Leicester player in sight, yet Schemeichel charged out and got a strong hand to it, more or less singlehandedly winning Leicester the game.

"That was very important, they were pivotal saves", added Shakespeare.
