What a difference!!! Allardyce would have put out a team with about 9 changes and hope Leicester did the same (Leicester have actually made a lot of changes though). So a very strong line up for West Ham taking the competition seriously and Leicester feilding a team with many changes a slightly weaker team than the one that caught us out at the beginning of the season.
A win for us is on the cards although Payet may have to come off the bench to help us over the line 2-1 to the Hammers!!!

That they have a Kante and a Fuchs in their team, it could be a bit of a problem for the radio commentators!

Way too casual... we keep giving the ball away under Leicester pressure. Look at the difference in tempo, their attacks are very quick and when they lose the ball they chase it down until its won back

Well I dunno about you lot but that I thought that was an enjoyable half of football.
Great to see a West Ham side playing so fluently after we'd scored.

Funny how we have had 60 percent of posession in this match compared to the last 3 outings average of 35 percent... If you look back to the Leicester and Bournemouth losses I think we had the posession then but lost those games. Slavs got our counterattacking play sorted against the big boys but when we play Leicester who are a counterattacking team it is not quite as effective. We started badly and under the cosh but have managed to get the ball down and contain their frantic attack... it will be good if we win this match to provide a blueprint on how to play against those troublesome smaller clubs and get out of the superior mindset that seems to cause the Citehs and Chelskis upsets

Yeah, we can't rely on only attacking on the counter, but guess it will take longer to dominate weaker sides without being hit on the counter-attack ourselves.

We were playing much better in the second half... leicester were dangerous with their direct play but we passed the ball around very well. Just need to break their defence... need Sakho

From the reverse angle it looked to me like their player got a toe to the ball but commentator.hs it is a nailed on penalty
