  • End of 2nd Half

That's it. Full time. Moyes has his first point as West Ham manager, and after some dreadful defending it was West Ham who dominated. Leicester looked dangerous for much of the first half, but fell apart as the match wore on. Something needs to change, or they will be as limited as Southampton were under Puel.

Sakho on for Masuaku.


Carroll, and then Ayew, head on Hart's huge kick, but it finds nobody else in a West Ham shirt. They are forcing this more than Leicester though.

There will be six added minutes. Slimani is on for Gray.


Zabaleta wins a corner on the right wing. Cresswell swings it in, and Iborra glances it behind the far post. Lanzini will take from the left. To the back post, it's headed into the air, and Ayew's overhead kick flies over the bar and onto the roof of the net.


We're in the last minute of normal time, meaning both sides are up against it to find a winner.


Carroll nods it behind for Masuaku to run onto down the left, but he falls as he gets to the touchline, and the danger passes.


West Ham scramble away a cross, and then another from Gray. Ndidi has the ball about 25 yards out, and fizzes his effort well wide.


Albrighton's cross causes panic in the West Ham box, and Reid and Carroll catch one another in the box as they clear. Carroll is OK to keep going.


Masuaku tries to dribble out of his box, is robbed by Vardy and Reid sprints across to flick the ball behind. Gray has a corner, but Carroll thunders it away.


Chilwell flights a cross into the back post, but Vardy tumbles and can't challenge for it.

Ayew and Gray are booked for a bit of shoving and kicking, but nothing serious.


Ayew goes down in the box, and appeals for a penalty. Maguire is looking guilty, and as well he should. He catches him from behind and while Ayew launched himself to the ground, it could well have been given.


Maguire does Zabaleta for pace down the left and wins a free kick. Hart flaps at the free kick, but Morgan and Kouyate clash, and the physios are on.


Obiang catches Gray in midfield with a leading arm, and should be booked. We'll see how that goes.

Ayew has come on for the injured Arnautovic.


Reid is back on. Hart will clear it after getting the ball back.


Reid is down now, getting treatment on the pitch. It appears it could be his right ankle, but I'm not a doctor.


Good work from Masuaku and Cresswell gets the ball to Lanzini on the left. With the ball on his right foot, he crosses in for Arnautovic, who heads well over.


It seems Arnautovic has more calf bother, but he's not given up yet. Ayew has been told to warm up by Moyes.


Hart lobs the ball out right in order to get Arnautovic - who is down in the box - some treatment.


More Leicester with the ball in defence. They seem happy enough with a point for now, but West Ham are West Ham, so let's not rule out anything.


Carroll has been poor so far, but he's not had much help as few crosses have come towards him. Masuaku fizzes in a cross from the left, but Schmeichel gets well behind it.


Iborra angles a pass out to the left for Fuchs, but it's behind him and races it ouf for a throw.


Leicester still seeing most of the ball, but much of that is well away from goal.


A moment ago, Maguire headed into the back of Carroll's noggin, and is clutching his face gingerly.


Leicester have done a little better at the start of the second half.


Obiang catches Mahrez on the right wing. Gray and Mahrez stand over the ball. It's Mahrez who fires in a cross that's headed away at the near post.

  • End of 1st Half

GOAL! West Ham 1-1 Leicester City. Kouyate scores - Lanzini curls in corner from the left, Kouyate is able to head freely at goal from close range, and it strikes Simpson on the line and into the net. Kouyate celebrates with the crossed-arms gesture in protest at the Libyan slavery crisis.


Ndidi concedes another foul in midfield, again on Lanzini, and he's tempting a booking.


Cresswell launches an up-and-under cross into the box, and Schmeichel can stoop to claim unchallenged.


Leicester appear to have weathered the storm, but then Simpson ends up getting a header away at the back post after Arnautovic crosses in.


Kouyate races in to meet a Cresswell cross from deep, but his header goes a touch wide of the near post.


Mahrez does brilliantly to bring down a long ball. Clever footwork allows him to keep it patiently, then release Vardy inside on the left, in the box. His low pass across goal goes to nobody.


Yet another free kick for Lanzini, in a similar area. It's scuffed in this time, and cleared easily just inside the box.


Arnautovic goes off for a few seconds for some treatment on a sore calf. He seems OK to continue for now.


Lanzini has a free kick to the left of the box, and from a tight angle, he hammers a curling shot at goal that Schmeichel forces out away from goal with a flap.


Ogbonna glances a header from Lanzini's curling cross, and Schmeichel does well to pad it away.


Ndidi shoves over Masuaku about 30 yards from goal, on the left of the box.


Arnautovic sprints back to take the ball off Vardy so swiftly in the box that Vardy produces an airshot. He tediously tries a couple of hacks in retaliation, and somehow wins a corner. It comes to nothing, as Fuchs leathers a rising shot from distance away from goal, and towards the crowd.


Masuaku barges into Albrighton in the box, bringing him down, but he is perhaps lucky that the ref gives no penalty.


Kouyate gets in behind the defence on the inside left. He turns around, picks out Lanzini behind him, and he curls a cross way over Carroll and Arnautovic, and Schmeichel claims.


Masuaku forces in a cross that is cleared as far as Obiang, and he drills a low shot wide of the goal.


Albrighton attempts to curl a cross from the left wing to the back post for Gray, but it drifts over him and out for a goal kick.


Gray jogs over to the right to take a corner. Mahrez is there too. The two take a short corner and it seems like they gave a way an offside with that move.


Hart didn't even move from the Albrighton shot, it really is an eff-up from the start of the move to the end of it.


Michael Appleton's arms are massive - you can see them through his big tracksuit coat.

Moyes is wondering where he can get Darron Gibson on.


Now it's the home side's turn to play the ball about the defence, but they lose it with some quick passing in Leicester's half.


Leicester have seen most of the ball so far.


Iborra and Zabaleta clatter one another in midfield as the game gets off to a start full of Moyes' beloved Britishness. Neither of them are British, but there you go, football is confusing.

I'm predicting a 2-0 win for Leicester tonight - send me your considered prose to @lxndrnthrtn. I'd love to engage on social media with you.


Today marks the return of #TBOF, invented by Fabio Capello. That's right, it's his two banks of four for Everton, with a defensive midfielder as well. It promising to be an absolute clogathon.


Claude Puel, meanwhile, has a studied calm about him. His Southampton side were... fine. But there are plenty of good players to use at Leicester, and with Jamie Vardy, there's enough to cause an error in most defences.


David Moyes - what to say? He has failed at inspiring his last three sides. He has shown tactical limitations in each of his last four jobs. He says the wrong thing to players, fans and the press. He has little ability to positively influence things, and his methods are obsolete.


You can tweet me at @lxndrnthrtn throughout the game with your comments.


Claude Puel has praise for Marc Albrighton and his ability to play in midfield: "He has great versatility, he can play wide and play in the middle. He is an important player for the team with a positive attitude. We will see in the future him develop his qualities.”


Manchester United legend David Moyes inspires: "I think it's becoming ridiculous," he said. "A couple of times people climbed over Andy and fouled him. And all it was was, 'No that's OK, if it's Andy it's fine for that to go on'. Just before he was booked, he was scythed by two people. If it been anyone else they would have gone down and taken a free-kick. Andy didn't. We are a country who want to rule out simulation. But he stays up and is hit by two people and gets zero protection. Every time Andy plays is everyone going to say, 'That's a foul'? If they do then we've got to say now that if you're six foot four you'd better go to basketball and stop being a centre-forward."
