The Hammers survived despite Mark Noble’s first-half sending off for a poor challenge.

A LATE WILFRED Ndidi goal earned Leicester a point as they drew 1-1 at home to 10-man West Ham in the Premier League today.

The Hammers took a first-half lead through Fabián Balbuena, but were hampered after captain Mark Noble was sent off for a poor challenge on 38 minutes.

Meanwhile, Declan Rice, who has established himself as a regular in the West Ham midfield this season, impressed with an assured performance not for the first time of late.

The 19-year-old — who is in an international tug of war with England and Ireland currently vying for his services — was named man of the match amid an influential display.

BT Sport pundits Chris Sutton and Owen Hargreaves praised the youngster hailing him as “brilliant” and “exceptional”.

Co-commentator John Hartson added that Rice has “a huge future ahead of him”.
