UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


And it is! What a crucial win for West Ham! Moyes said he thought they just needed one more win, and they've got it here from a Joao Mario tap-in and a stunning strike from Noble. Leicester produced a timid, uninspiring performance at home to extend a run of poor form that has seen manager Puel come under some pressure. It finishes 2-0 here to West Ham!
90' + 4' Maguire hits a very, very speculative effort after being urged by what remains of the home crowd, and it deflects out to an offside Benalouane. That must be that now.
P. Evra
A. Masuaku
90' + 3' Evra replaces Masuaku, who had a very bright first half, for the last couple of minutes.
90' + 1' FIVE minutes of added time. The home fans don't seem too excited. They don't seem to think a comeback is on the cards here.
89' Adrian does really well again as he catches Benlouane's header from a corner to relieve the mounting pressure on his goal in the last few minutes.
88' SAVE! Great save from Adrian as he dives to his near post and hooks the ball away following a header back across.
87' Mahrez plays an absolutely dreadful ball to nobody on the left. That about sums Leicester's day up.
86' SAVE! Silva registers Leicester's first shot on target as he thumps a low volley into Adrian's midriff, to ironic applause from the home support.
84' Time is running out for Leicester to mount a comeback now, as Iheanacho can only direct a poor cross over the bar.
82' Carroll shows his worth from a defensive point of view, heading two corners clear in succession as West Ham look to hang on to a massive three points.
81' Iheanacho's attempted through-ball causes chaos in the West Ham box as Cresswell again dallies on the ball under pressure, before the ball is eventually hacked clear.
E. Fernandes
M. Arnautović
79' And Arnautovic does now come off, to be replaced by Fernandes.
77' Arnautovic is now down and receiving treatment. He looks very much like a man who wants to come off at this point. He's done his bit for the team.
A. Carroll
M. Lanzini
75' Carroll is introduced for the last 15 minutes, but not for Arnautovic - who looks absolutley shattered - but rather Lanzini. Strange decision from Moyes there.
74' A Leicester attack breaks down and West Ham break through Arnautovic and Lanzini, but the former just can't hook his cross back into the box.
71' CHANCE! Noble goes down under challenge on the edge of the box, and amidst appeals for a penalty, Arnautovic dances through the Foxes defence and smashes a left-footed effort at goal, but Maguire gets back well to deflect it behind for a corner!
68' Leicester have thrown everyone forward since the goal in search of a route back into the game, forcing West Ham to sit deep and weather the storm for the moment.
M. Noble
65' GOAL! WHAT A HIT BY NOBLE! The West Ham captain hits the ball on the volley from about 30 yards after a free-kick was headed out to him and it flies into the bottom-left corner! What a sensational strike by the midfielder! It's 2-0 to West Ham!
A. Dragović
Yellow Card
64' Dragovic is the latest player to go into the referee's book.
63' SAVE! Maguire hits a half-volley sharply at Adrian's goal, but the Spaniard does excellently to keep the young defender's strike out!
D. Gray
F. Diabaté
61' Diabate - another one of the few bright sparks - is replaced by Gray.
K. Ịheanachọ
H. Choudhury
61' Iheanacho comes on as part of a double-change to provide Vardy with a strike partner - the impressive Choudhury is one of two to make way.
60' Arnautovic is caught offside as the ball comes too late following an advantage. The Austrian isn't happy with his team-mate there.
59' Mahrez has a wonderful opportunity to pick out a team-mate, but he dallies on the ball too long and is crowded out by three West Ham shirts. It's not really been his day.
58' Since that change at half-time, it looks as though Maguire has stepped into a holding midfield role, with Dragovic partnering Morgan in defence.
56' Mahrez tries to chase a ball down the right, but Ogbonna is more determined and beats him to it, hacking well clear.
53' CHANCE! A huge chance for West Ham there, as the Hammers have a three-on-two situation, but Joao Mario picks the wrong option in Arnautovic to his right, and the Austrian is twice denied as he tries to square the ball to Lanzini at the back post. Perhaps he should have tried to take the chance on himself there.
52' It's been a much better start from Leicester at the start of this half, much more positive.
A. Cresswell
Yellow Card
49' Well! Cresswell gets himself in all sorts of bother as he tries to be too clever with Vardy bearing down on him. He ends up stumbling to the floor on the edge of the box and grabs hold of the ball, claiming he'd been fouled. The referee, however, rightly books him for handball and awards a free-kick! Vardy was through though, and the home fans want to see red!
48' BLOCK! A long throw from Masuaku is defended lazily by Leicester and Ogbonna latches onto it and fires the ball at goal, but it's blocked away!
46' Benalouane hits a volley from outside the area that is blocked by a crowd of players in the box.
A. Dragović
46' An interesting move by Puel as Dragovic replaces Iborra, who had only just returned to fitness.
46' And we're back underway for the second half!
West Ham have been the dominant force in the first half, with Lanzini looking dangerous and Arnautovic striking the crossbar, before eventually setting up a simple goal for Joao Mario that could be crucial in their fight to stave off the drop. Leicester, meanwhile, have played like a side with nothing to gain, and the loss of key players to injury is evident, with makeshift right-back Benlouane in particualr struggling to cope with Masuaku. It's 1-0 at half time, and the home fans will be hoping for better in the second half!
45' + 1' And there goes the half-time whistle, to boos from sections of the home crowd. They're clearly not impressed with what they've seen from their side.
45' Mahrez - who has been virtually anonymous so far - overhits his corner from the right, and Morgan does well to try and head it back into the area, but West Ham have set themselves well and can clear.
43' CHANCE! Leicester get forward well down the right, but Vardy is the only option in the middle and the low cross towards him comes loose, but Adrian pounces on it.
42' MISS! Lanzini slaloms his way through blue shirts and down the left, but his fierce, left-footed effort hits the side-netting.
M. Arnautović
Yellow Card
41' Arnautovic tries to knock the ball past Maguire and beat him for pace, but the young Englishman gets his bidy in between the two, and there's a little shoving off the ball between the two, prompting the referee to book the West Ham forward.
39' MISS! And Diabate fires a warning shot, wriggling free of his markers and fizzing a left-footed effort at goal, but he drags it wide of the far post.
38' That goal could prove crucial in the Hammers' fight against the drop, but there's plenty of work left to do here.
M. Arnautović
34' Arnautovic was unselfish there, pulling it back for Joao Mario, and the Austrian has now been directly involved in nine goals in his last eight away games for West Ham in the Premier League (5 goals, 4 assists).
João Mário
34' GOAL! And West Ham finally have their goal! Masuaku again beats Benalouane down the flank and crosses for Arnautovic at the back post. He shapes to volley, but instead taps it back across for Joao Mario, who has the simple job of diverting the ball into an empty net! It's 1-0 to West Ham!
33' CROSSBAR! What an effort from Arnautovic! A long ball drops to him and he's more alert than Morgan, snapping a beautiful, dipped effort that smacks back out off the crossbar! What a goal that would have been!
32' Morgan is lucky to get away without a yellow card for a high challenge on Arnautovic.
31' SAVE! Lanzini slips the ball through for Arnautovic down the left, and he tries to fire it through the keeper's legs, but Hamer is off his line quickly to make a good stop, and Lanzini's cross from the loose ball is poor.
29' BLOCK! Leicester are growing into the game slowly, as Silva strikes one from outside the box that takes a nick of a West Ham player. It drops just in front of Vardy in space, but he's not expecting it and it skips on through to the goalkeeper.
25' A first real attack of the afternoon for Leicester as they work it out to the left-hand side and cross towards the back post, but Adrian makes an excellent catch and gets his side back in control.
23' Joao Mario does really well to retain the ball despite losing his footing, but Leicester eventually get a toe in and hack it aimlessly away. West Ham get it back and start again. That's been the pattern of the game in the last 10 minutes or so.
22' Vardy has hardly kicked a ball so far in this game, and West Ham have been by far the dominant side in the opening stages.
19' Cresswell gets forward for the first time in this game and tries to whip a cross into the box from the byline, but it's at a comfortable height for Hamer to catch.
17' West Ham push forward again and pen Leicester inside their area. Kouyate inadvertently nicks the ball away from Lanzini, but the little Argentine wins it back and cannons a shot back off a Leicester defender. He has looked the most likely to score for West Ham so far.
14' OFFSIDE! Masuaku continues to exert his influence on the game as he curls a great ball in behind for the run of Arnautovic, but the former Stoke City forward had gone a fraction too early. He'd have been clean through there! Another let-off for the hosts.
13' MISS! Masuaku is getting plenty of joy down the left ahead of Benalouane, and his whipped cross to the back post is headed wide by Zabaleta! Perhaps he should have tried to hit that on the volley.
10' CHANCE! West Ham are having a real go here, as Masuaku's cross finds Lanzini in the box at the second attempt, but it's blocked away! The visitors certainly look like scoring at this rate.
8' Hamer makes a real hash of collecting a through-ball for Arnautovic, choosing instead to slide in for the ball rather than going with his hands, and it comes loose, before the goalkeeper eventually pounces on it! More nerves and uncertainty at the back for the hosts.
6' CHANCE! Huge chance for West Ham as Lanzini is found in space in the box, before turning and lashing a shot at goal, but it's deflected out to Joao Mario on the right, but he hesitates and his pull-back is hacked clear! It was very nervy stuff at the back for the Foxes, but they survive!
3' Kouyate gives the ball away as he tries to play the ball forward, but Leicester can't make the most of it as they try to counter, only succeeding in giving away a throw-in.
1' Arnautovic takes the chance to run at makeshift Leicester right-back Benalouane early on, but the Foxes defender does well to stand firm and win a throw-in off the forward.
1' And we're off at the King Power Stadium!
Both sides have shown poor discipline over the course of the campaign, with Leicester receiving a league-high five red cards, while West Ham have had more yellows than any other side (70).
And West Ham will have to improve defensively if they are going to reverse that poor run here, having shipped 67 Premier League goals this season - only in one campaign have they ever conceded more in the competition (70 in 2010-11 when they finished bottom).
However, recent history is on the side of the hosts, who are unbeaten in their last six Premier League meetings with West Ham (W4 D2), since a 0-2 loss at Upton Park in December 2014.
Moyes' side are winless in their last four games, but the Foxes are also in poor form, having won just four of their last 18 league matches, and have lost three of their last four (D1), more than they had in their previous 10 in the competition (W4 D4 L2).
The Hammers have a great deal more to play for than their counterparts today, as Leicester can only finish as high as eighth, while the Londoners aren't safe from the drop yet - they sit just three points above the relegation zone.
For West Ham, David Moyes makes just two changes, as veteran defender Evra and midfielder Fernandes drop to the bench, to be replaced by Masuaku and Joao Mario. Andy Carroll is named on the bench despite his misdemeanours during the 4-1 defeat to Manchester City last time out, while Michail Antonio (hamstring), Winston Reid (knee), Sam Byram (ankle) and James Collins (hamstring) are still sidelined. Joe Hart misses out altogether through illness.
Leicester manager Claude Puel makes five changes from the side that were humiliated 5-0 by Crystal Palace last time out, with nine players unavailable to him. Marc Albrighton is suspended, while Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), Danny Simpson (groin), Robert Huth (ankle), Matty James (Achilles) are also out along with Ben Chilwell and Daniel Amartey. Fuchs, Benalouane, Iborra, Silva, and Diabate come into the side.
West Ham substitutes: Nathan Trott, Andy Carroll, Pedro Obiang, Edimilson Fernandes, Jordan Hugill, Josh Cullen, Patrice Evra
West Ham XI (3-4-2-1): Adrian; Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna, Declan Rice; Arthur Masuaku, Mark Noble, Cheikhou Kouyate, Pablo Zabaleta; Manuel Lanzini, Joao Mario; Marko Arnautovic
Leicester City substitutes: Harvey Barnes, Demarai Gray, Eldin Jakupovic, Kelechi Iheanacho, Sam Hughes, Aleksandar Dragovic, George Thomas
Leicester City XI (4-4-1-1): Ben Hamer; Christian Fuchs, Harry Maguire, Wes Morgan, Yohan Benalouane; Hamza Choudhury, Vincente Iborra, Adrien Silva, Riyad Mahrez; Fousseni Diabate; Jamie Vardy
The line-ups have been announced, and we'll start with the home side.
