Leicester City 1 West Ham 1: Ndidi’s Late Goal denies 10-man Hammers

A late deflected strike by Wilfred Ndidi salvaged a 1-1 Premier League draw for Leicester City against 10-man West Ham at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Leicester looked flat in the closing stages, but Ndidi’s strike from distance took a wicked deflection off Balbuena to stop his side from slipping to a third successive defeat.

Fabian Balbuena had earlier handed the Hammers a first-half lead, scoring his first goal for the club following his move from Corinthians with a close-range finish.

Their cause was made more difficult in the 38th minute when Mark Noble received a straight red card for raking his studs down Ndidi’s calf.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side looked like they would withstand Noble’s moment of madness, but Ndidi’s 89th-minute strike took a significant deflection off Balbuena and spun into Lukasz Fabianski’s top corner to ensure a share of the spoils.
