Ndidi rescues Leicester as Liverpool return to top of Premier League table

Both Leicester and West Ham have lost back to back games coming into this evening's encounter. "We got a late goal but then we see our player down in pain and in the doctors' room so at the moment it is not a nice feeling".

Wilfred Ndidi netted a last-gasp equaliser to help Leicester secure a 1-1 draw against 10-man West Ham United after Fabian Balbuena had given the visitors the lead but Puel was more focused on ensuring Amartey makes a full recovery.

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell says that there is no reason why the Hammers can't win against Leicester City if they manage to perform well on Saturday.

Manager Claude Puel dropped talismanic striker Jamie Vardy to the Leicester bench and the controversial decision looked to have backfired when his side went behind in the 30th minute.

"Jamie has had a hard start because he came back from the World Cup without a pre-season and without good work with his team-mates".

Despite missing a host of key players, including Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Pellegrini's side thought they had secured all three points after Paraguay global Fabian Balbuena netted his first Premier League goal on the half-hour mark.

"Over the course of the game we had the ball more and created chances but we didn't quite have the edge again".

"He always has good attributes and he will score a lot of goals and will be fine with a lot of good stability and to play regularly".

The last clash between the teams ended badly for the Foxes as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat after goals from Joao Mario and a world class strike from Mark Noble won it for the Hammers. "For me, they are a very good team". He is playing well and was at his best in this game, so it is hard.

Pellegrini declined to be drawn on the dismissal of Noble adding: "I haven't seen it".
