WEST HAM WERE dumped back to earth today with a 2-1 Premier League defeat at the hands of Leicester City less than a week after beating title hopefuls Arsenal.

Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez had put the visitors into a two-goal lead before Dimitri Payet pulled one back for Slaven Bilic’s team.

However, as he went forward to help the Hammers grab an equaliser late on, goalkeeper Adrian was sent off by referee Anthony Taylor for this challenge on Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, a decision that has divided opinion on social media.

What do you think?
