A brace from Jesse Lingard (29th, 44th minutes) and a solitary strike from Jarrod Bowen  (48th minute) saw West Ham race to a 3-0 lead.

With 20 minutes left Iheanacho pulled a goal back for Leicester as he turned and scored from distance.

And in the 91st minute Iheanacho grabbed his second to make it 3-2 but West Ham held on for the points.

West Ham move up to fourth place on 55 points usurping Chelsea while Leicester are third on 56 points in the league table.
