Leicester were reduced to 10 men, in the first half, after Ayoze Perez was sent off for a bad challenge on West Ham’s Pablo Fornals.
Fornals had put West Ham ahead in the 26th minute.
Then a Michail Antonio double, in the second half helped the Londoners record an impressive 4-1 win against the visitors.
