Leicester’s ideal start ends in loss to West Ham

West Brom are the first Premier League side to concede as many as 13 goals after four matches of a season since Southampton in 2012-13.

West Ham completed the mauling in the 83rd minute when Jarrod Bowen finished off a dominating display.

The Hammers forward was originally fouled by Caglar Soyuncu and immediately took the free-kick, switching the play out wide to left-back Aaron Cresswell who swung a cross from deep into the Leicester box, which an unmarked Antonio would connect with to nod past Kasper Schmeichel.

With their manager David Moyes absent after testing positive for coronavirus, the Hammers produced a breathtaking performance under his assistant Alan Irvine in their first away league win of the season.

"That gave them opportunities to break out".

Pablo Fornals doubled the lead in the 34th.

That combination would likely have brought a third goal had Jonny Evans not blocked Fornals' effort inside the six-yard box, following Antonio's low cross.

The new signing on loan from AS Roma came on for the injured Amartey in the second-half and the Turkey worldwide didn't look shy of confidence.

He shot from eight metres out, after holding off two defenders.

West Ham United celebrated a stunning 3-0 win at Leicester City in the English Premier League (EPL) on Sunday to end the Foxes' flawless start after three successive wins. Fornals' pass in behind the defence cut Leicester open again and Bowen darted through to finish neatly past Schmeichel and ensure another emphatic Premier League victory for West Ham, following their 4-0 success against Wolves last weekend.

The home side's miserable afternoon was summed up when Jamie Vardy missed a 90th-minute sitter before Harvey Barnes had a stoppage time goal scrapped by VAR after a one-two with Vardy who was marginally offside. Click the link in the orange box above for details.
