West Ham 2 Leicester City 0
A very well taken Andy Carroll goal midway through the first half and a quite magnificent second from Stewart Downing sealed the points when we were really never at more than 75 per cent of capacity.
Carroll should have scored a couple of minutes before the opener but skied his effort from close in after being set up by Downing.
Leicester had their moments and Adrian had to be in his very best form to keep out shots from Mahrez in the first half before pulling off a couple of wondrous saves near the end from Nugent and Ulloa.
However, by then the game was dead and buried after a seriously poor back bass from Paul Koncehskyhad fallen to Carroll in the 24th minute which saw the big fella stride on to bury a great effort.
With Alex Song patrolling midfield, Sakho and Carroll in dominant form and Downing playing his usual highly influential role, things were never likely to slip.
James Tomkins had a couple of hairy moments when losing possession in dangerous areas and came off after 69 minutes with an injury to be replaced by James Collins.
So on we go and although Chelsea is as tough as it gets next weekend we are tremendous heart and all things are now possible.
