Chaos inside the West Ham penalty areas as Pereira barges his way through on the right. Leicester have to settle for a corner, it drops to Fofana, who heads wide...
Moyes is gesturing wildly at the touchline to remind his players they have just one minute to hold on...
Leicester win a corner, Schmeichel is up to contest it, but West Ham scramble it clear. The tension!
- GoalKelechi IheanachoLeicester City
West Ham 3-2 Leicester (Kelechi Iheanacho): Albrighton drills a lovely ball across the face of goal, West Ham can't clear and it falls to Iheanacho, who prods it home. Now then, with five minutes left, can Leicester find what would be a dramatic late, late equaliser?
There will be SIX minutes of added time to play!
Albrighton carves inside after a lovely touch, but he loses out to Masuaku inside the box and West Ham have a goal-kick.
- OffJarrod BowenWest Ham United
- OnSaid BenrahmaWest Ham United
West Ham sub: The excellent Bowen makes way for Said Benrahma.
Leicester continue to apply pressure as they force a corner, Albrighton takes but Soucek is on hand to clear with a header.
- OffMark NobleWest Ham United
- OnBen JohnsonWest Ham United
West Ham sub: Noble cannot continue and is replaced by Ben Johnson for the last eight minutes or so.
No penalty! Pereira is through on goal but Fabianski is off his line quickly and gets something on the ball to take it off his feet. Leicester want a penalty but replays show Mike Dean gets the decision correct.
West Ham are temporarily down to 10 men as Noble leaves the pitch to receive treatment.
Important block! Noble, on his landmark appearance, rescues West Ham with a brave block to send Iheanacho's shot behind for a corner! Talk about putting your body on the line. He's hurt himself in the process, though, and may not be able to see out the remainder.
Iheanacho gives Leicester hope...
Already on a booking, Ndidi is fortunate not to be shown his marching orders for a foul on Bowen.
Leicester are finally playing with urgency. They have around 20 minutes to find two more goals. West Ham nerves will be beginning to jangle if they can find another one.
- GoalKelechi IheanachoLeicester City
GOAL! West Ham 3-1 Leicester (Kelechi Iheanacho): Pereira gets a toe in to win Leicester possession deep in the home side's half and Iheanacho ensures the mistake is punished, slamming a venomous shot past Fabianski from distance. Game on?
Albrighton whips in a teasing delivery but no one in Leicester colours can get their head on it and Fabianski smothers.
It has been an extremely worrying afternoon for Leicester, who are now staring down the barrel at back-to-back defeats.
Fabianski keeps his cool to collect a deep cross and at the moment West Ham are looking more than comfortable.
It's not Leicester's day. The resultant corner comes to Ndidi but he can't direct his shot on goal.
The ball drops kindly for the unmarked Tielemans on the edge of the box. He looks like he's going to unwind with a first-time shot but instead looks to check back onto his left foot and loses possession. Moments later, Iheanacho feeds Albrighton after a dangerous run and he forces the corner.
Have a look at West Ham's third...
- OffDennis PraetLeicester City
- OnMarc AlbrightonLeicester City
Leicester sub: Albrighton comes on for Praet as Rodgers makes a tactical switch.
No penalty! Thomas goes down inside the box after contact from Soucek but Mike Dean isn't convinced and neither is VAR.
Goal chalked off! West Ham take a quick free-kick to find Lingard on the right. His cross is excellent and finds Diop, who heads in what he believes is the Hammers' fourth of the day. But it's not going to count, he was marginally offside and VAR correctly rules it out.
- OffAaron CresswellWest Ham United
- OnFabián BalbuenaWest Ham United
It looks like Cresswell is going to continue but he's back on the floor again and he won't be able to go on after all. Fabian Balbuena is his replacement.
Cresswell lands awkwardly and may have to come off...
- GoalJarrod BowenWest Ham United
GOAL! West Ham 3-0 Leicester (Jarrod Bowen): Leicester are falling apart! Lingard is involved again as he drives forward and feeds Soucek. He rolls it across to Bowen who makes no mistake with a clinical finish. Three shots on target, three goals for West Ham, and, as it stands, they're going back into the top-four!
Yellow card! Ndidi is the fifth player today to be booked as he's cautioned for a foul full of frustration on Bowen.
- OffDaniel AmarteyLeicester City
- OnLuke ThomasLeicester City
Kick-off! West Ham get things moving in the second-half. Leicester made a sub at the break, with Luke Thomas taking the place of Amartey.
And here's his second...
Have a look at Lingard's opener...
Half-time! West Ham are leading by two goals to nil at the break thanks to a Jesse Lingard double. As it stands, David Moyes' side are climbing back into the top-four.
- Yellow cardWesley FofanaLeicester City
Yellow card! Fofana has his name taken for a foul on Bowen.
There will be two additional minutes at the end of the first half.
- GoalJesse LingardWest Ham United
GOAL! West Ham 2-0 Leicester (Jesse Lingard): Lingard at the double! He's done it again! Leicester are caught out by a raking ball over the top as Evans plays on Bowen, who races onto it with a clever run down the right. Schmeichel races off his line and Bowen looks up and rolls it across to Lingard, who is left with a simple tap-in.
Vardy gets himself the wrong side of Dawson and appears to be fouled inside the penalty area... but the linesman flag is raised for offside. A close call.
Chance for West Ham! Bowen is released on the right flank by Lingard and if anything he has too much time to assess his options. He gets the ball stuck underneath him and ends up rolling it across to Lingard, but the pass is behind him and he can't get the power to test Schmeichel with his shot.
Iheanacho drives Leicester forward and exchanges passes with Tielemans. He unloads with a shot that takes a deflection behind for a corner. Good response from the visitors, this.
Now that Leicester are behind, what can Rodgers do? Without Maddison, they will have their work cut out. But this is an important game in their season. After losing to Man City last time out, they will want to avoid back-to-back defeats.
Yellow card! Pereira is cautioned for a foul on Fornals which stops West Ham from breaking on the counter-attack.
In front of the watching eyes of England manager Gareth Southgate, Lingard has done it again. What a time he's having at West Ham.
- Yellow cardAaron CresswellWest Ham United
Yellow card! Cresswell goes into the book for a foul on Iheanacho.
- GoalJesse LingardWest Ham United
GOAL! West Ham 1-0 Leicester (Jesse Lingard): Everything he touches at the moment turns to gold! Lingard breaks the deadlock with a beautiful finish! Masuaku skips past his marker on the left and delivers a cross that evades everyone. Coufal keeps it alive on the opposite flank and finds Lingard free on the edge of the penalty area. And he somehow wraps a gorgeous volley around the defender and past Schmeichel!
There's an obvious offside but the linesman keeps his flag down and Fofana ends up hurting himself trying to clear the ball. And then the offside call comes! The Leicester defender will be fine to continue, though.
Leicester have lost just once on the road this season, accumulating 34 points in 15 games. Without Antonio, it's going to be difficult for West Ham to breach this stubborn defence.
Leicester have been reduced to shots from distance and again Fabianski barely has to move as Vardy swivels and lets go with a tame shot.
With so much riding on this game, it is no surprise that it has been a cagey affair so far.
Vardy picks himself up after and appears to be OK after a slight knock.
Chance! Masuaku gets his head up and spots Bowen making a darting run to the far post. He whips it into the danger area but Bowen can't quite there and actually ends up sliding into the post.
It's a safe pair of hands from Schmeichel who collects from the resultant corner delivery.
Cresswell's deliveries are usually spot-on but there's Amartey in the way to block his cross and West Ham have to settle for the corner.
Fabianski races off his line to make an interception after Coufal made a mess of his clearance. A nervy moment in the West Ham defence goes unpunished.
Pereira slaloms his way to the edge of the penalty area but Diop steps in and makes the challenge, before Bowen drops deep to win West Ham a free-kick in midfield.
A strange free-kick from Tielemans, he appeared to be looking for the run of Vardy with a floated cross to the near post but that run was nonexistent and the ball drifts harmlessly out of play.
- Yellow cardTomáš SoucekWest Ham United
Yellow card! Soucek is the first player to have his name noted by the referee Mike Dean for a late challenge on Tielemans.
Evans floats a long ball out of defence and when Masuaku misjudges the flight of his jump, Iheanacho is there to pounce. But he doesn't get the connection he would have wanted on his shot and slices it wide.
Bowen goes down close to where Coufal won a free-kick a few minutes ago but this time the referee isn't convinced and allows play to continue.
Iheanacho warms the gloves of Fabianski with a shot from distance but his daisy-cutter is straight forward for the West Ham goalkeeper.
It's a job well done from Leicester as Evans heads Bowen's floated delivery clear. Now there's a slight concern over Lingard who goes down holding his head after a clash, but he will be fine to continue.
West Ham have the best record from scoring from set-pieces this season and they'll have a chance to test Leicester's resilience now as Coufal wins a foul on the right flank.
- 1st Half
Kick-off! Leicester get us underway after the players take a knee.
A two-minute silence is held as a mark of respect for His Royal Highness Prince Philip, who sadly passed away on Friday.
TEN minutes until kick-off! It's West Ham versus Leicester in the Premier League; it's LIVE and it's NEXT!
Leicester would consolidate their place in third with victory today and would crucially extend the gap on fifth-placed Liverpool to seven points with seven games remaining. A win for the Hammers would see them climb above Liverpool and Chelsea back into fourth. Plenty to play for!
Maddison and Perez were "not available" for this game and will join the group ahead of next week's FA Cup semi-final, according to Rodgers, who was speaking to Sky Sports just now.
Leicester were outplayed by Man City in their last outing, will Brendan Rodgers a response from his charges?
Last time out, West Ham ripped Wolves to shreds in the first half but lost Antonio to injury, can David Moyes find a way to fill the void left by the in-form forward?
Opta stat: Between 1994-95 and 2014-15, West Ham won seven of their eight home Premier League matches against Leicester (L1) - they are winless in five at home since then (D2 L3), losing 2-1 last season.
This graph shows how big of a miss Maddison will be and just how important a rejuvenated Jessie Lingard is to the Hammers...
James Maddison is missing from the Leicester match day squad which is obviously a huge blow. Jamie Vardy has just one goal in his last 17 matches and will be targeting a return to form. Dennis Praet comes in for Ayoze Perez and Ricardo Pereira gets the nod ahead of Marc Albrighton at wingback.
In the absence of the injured Michail Antonio, Jarrod Bowen - who scored in the 3-2 victory over Wolves after coming on as his replacement - leads the line for West Ham. Mark Noble continues to deputise for Declan Rice in midfield.
