Premier League: Ndidi, Iheanacho Suffer Heavy Defeat With Leicester At West Ham

Premier League: Ndidi, Iheanacho Suffer Heavy Defeat With Leicester At West Ham 

Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi were at the receiving end of a heavy defeat; as 10-man Leicester were thrashed 4-1 by West Ham in Monday night’s Premier League tie, Completesports.com reports.

Ndidi was on from start to finish while Iheanacho was brought on for Jamie Vardy on 81 minutes.

It was Leicester’s first defeat of the season after opening the campaign with a 1-0 win against Wolves.

Two fine late goals from Michail Antonio capped a second successive win but while David Moyes’s side were dominant, they were helped on their way by the  Ayoze Perez’s sending off.
West Ham had already taken the lead through Pablo Fornals when Perez was dismissed shortly before the interval for an ugly stamp on the Hammers forward following the intervention of VAR.

A poor backpass from Leicester centre-back Caglar Soyuncu then allowed Said Benrahma to double the lead in the 56th minute.

While Youri Tielemans brought the visitors back into the game, Antonio settled the outcome with his 48th and 49th Premier League goals, making him West Ham’s leading scorer in the competition.

  • This serves Leicester City well for starting Harvey Banrns, James Maddison and Ayoze Pereez ahead of Kelechi and Patson Dakah. i don’t know what is wrong with Brender Rodgers, with all Kelechi did towards the end of last season he still had the effrontery to keep him on the bench.

     
  • I wonder if it would have been better to play ndidi in central defence. That combination of amartey and soyunchu was really yesterday. They couldn’t hold the defence together. Soyuncu’s back pass that led to a goal was worse than ekongs mistake. Rodgers should consider signing another central defender if fofana and evans will be out for long because if he is pinning his hopes on soyunchu and amartey then he should be ready for whAtever result his team gets.
