Harvey Barnes’ injury time goal secured a draw for Leicester against West Ham

West Ham 2-2 Leicester

Leicester substitute Harvey Barnes scored an injury time to secure a controversial Premier League draw against West Ham at London Stadium.

The Hammers looked on course for victory after Lucas Perez turned in the rebound when fellow replacement Pedro Obiang hit the post after 82 minutes.

The Spaniard should have had a second goal as he rounded Kasper Schmeichel after Obiang’s through ball but was wrongly called offside.

That allowed the visitors to sweep forward in search of another equalizer and Youri Tielemans picked out Barnes, with the winger slotting low beyond Lukasz Fabianski for his first Leicester goal.

Winger Michail Antonio put West Ham ahead for the first time before the break, rising above above Ben Chilwell to head in Mark Noble’s fine cross.

Jamie Vardy levelled for the Foxes with his ninth goal in 10 league games thanks to an exquisite finish at the near post.

Leicester fall one place to eighth in the table, while West Ham remain 11th.
