Major frustration as Irons let it slip at the end

Irons 2 Leicester City 2

West Ham’s long suffering fans suffered another bitter body blow as Leicester City came back from the dead with a 93rd minute injury time goal.

After leading twice through Michail Antonio and Lucas Perez near the end we were undone by a Jamie Vardy equaliser and a Harvey Barnes leveller.

The boys had continued where they left off against Manchester United in the first half and Antionio’s header from a clippped Noble cross.

But Vaerdy equaliser when he got the wrong side of Balbuena to level with a fine near post goal

Perez was left with a simple tap in after 82 minutes after substitute Obiang’s had hit the post but Barnes left us all feeling sick when escaping to fire past Fabianski.

The Hammers had played the sort of possession game so effective at Old Trafford last week in the first half but the Foxes stepped up to the plate in the second half and we were left looking stretched in midfield where far too much was falling on Rice’s shoulders.

Obiang made a difference and it was good to see Jack Wilshere return after so long on the sidelines with a six minute cameo.

But the bottom fell out of everything with the Barnes goal as once againĀ  the Hammers failed to see out the final minutes of a game crucial inĀ  relation to them showing us they are learning lessons.

Instead we caved in at a critical stage to remain in 11th place.
