West Ham is having a really bad season so far and it seems like their luck isn’t going to improve any time soon. This weekend the London Stadium hosted the clash between West Ham and Leicester City and it didn’t end well for the Londoners. The tense match showed how much Leicester has improved and at the same time showed how much the Hammers deteriorated this season sending them to the relegation zone.  

The match started a bit relaxed but slowly intensified towards the end of the first halftime. Kelechi Iheanacho managed to score the first goal of the match in the 40th minute giving Leicester City the lead. But this changed only 5 minutes later when West Ham’s Pablo Fornals scored the first goal for the Hammers, leading to a tie at the end of the first half.  

The second half time saw superior tactics from Leicester and Demarai Gray managed to score the third goal of the match in the 56th minute leading his club to victory.  

This match took Leicester City to the amazing second place on the Premier League board and sent the Hammers down to the 17th place. 

After the end of the match, David Gold and David Sullivan announced that Pellegrini will be leaving the club.
