Premier League Table After Yesterday's Match As Chelsea & Liverpool Dropped To A Lower Position

To round-up last weekend's fixtures of day two in the English Premier League, West Ham United welcomed Leicester City to London Stadium and they won emphatically by 4-1.

The Hammers started the game very well and they got their lead in the 26th minute when Said Benrahma's cross is neatly tucked away by Pablo Fornals. Later on the 40th minute, Ayoze Perez was sent off following a challenge on Pablo Fornals, with the decision being confirmed after visiting the Referee Review Area. David Moyes's men ended the first period with 1-0.

In the second half, West Ham continued that ruthless performance and added the second goal in the 56th minute when Michail Antonio pounces on a loose backpass from Caglar Soyuncu, the talented striker then squares it to Said Benrahma who calmly converts.
