Michael Oliver appointed as referee for Leicester- West Ham clash- Can Hammers reproduce Man Utd heroics

West Ham’s last game saw their winless run at home under Martin Atkinson extend to six games, but they will be hopeful of a better result under the referee appointed for their next clash away at the King Power Stadium. The Premier League have awarded Michael Oliver this clash- the same person who was in the middle when the Hammers produced their famous 3-1 upset over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United a few weeks ago.

The Hammers were also victorious on their last visit to the King Power, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Noble and Inter loanee Joao Mario. [Read more…]

West Ham 2-3 Leicester

Prior to this game, Leicester hadn’t won a single game on the road this Premier League season. Of course, they had to do it at West Ham, they just had to.

Another disappointing game from West Ham- they were slow off the blocks (the lesser we speak of the defence the better), and had plenty of chances to draw or even win the game, but eventually finished on the wrong side of a 3-2 scoreline and gave Craig Shakespeare the record of being the first Leicester manager to start his Premier League campaign with three straight wins [Read more…]

Andre Ayew miss vs Leicester (Video) March 18, 2017

Horrible miss from West Ham’s Andrew Ayew in their 2-3 loss to Leicester at the London Stadium on March 18, 2017. After a great run from Michail Antonio, Ayew found himself with just Schmeichel to beat, but blazed his effort over the bar. If he had scored, the game would’ve been tied at 3-3 [Read more…]

Video Aaron Cresswell’s super goal v Leicester

Cracking strike this one from Hammers defender Aaron Cresswell in his side’s 2-2 draw with Leicester on 17 April, 2016. Should end up as one of the nominees for the club’s goal of the season. Might be shaded by Payet for the eventual award, but it’s very nice goal in it’s own right [Read more…]
