Leicester (UK), Oct. 4, 2020 (Reuters/Naija247news) West Ham United celebrated a stunning 3-0 win at Leicester City in the English Premier League (EPL) on Sunday to end the Foxes’ perfect start after three successive wins.

The visiting Hammers produced a fine performance capped with goals from Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen.

The result provisionally left 2016 champions Leicester City second in the standings on nine points from four games.

The Hammers climbed to sixth on six points with their first away win of the season.

Following their impressive 5-2 win at Manchester City a week ago, Leicester City were brought crashing down to earth against the visitors, who could have won by a bigger margin.

Antonio headed West Ham into a 14th minute lead as he rose at the far post to meet a long Aaron Cresswell cross and steer the ball into the opposite corner.

Fornals made it 2-0 in the 34th minute when he took a lofted pass in his stride and beat home goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel with a left-footed shot.

He shot from eight metres out, after holding off two defenders.

Declan Rice hit the underside of the bar for West Ham after a darting solo run from inside his own half.

Bowen then put the icing on the cake with a clinical finish in the 83rd minute, courtesy of a defence-splitting pass by Fornals.
