'My thoughts are more about his injury than about the game.

The makeshift right back lay on the ground in agony in the closing stages of the match, and it was immediately apparent that the player had suffered a very serious injury, as he received oxygen on the pitch before being stretchered off.

Leicester laid siege to the West Ham goal thereafter and finally made the breakthrough after 89 minutes with Ndidi's deflected strike making it 1-1.

West Ham United were held to a 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Saturday night and fans were delighted with the performance of one of their stars this season on social media.

Reacting moments after the game, Leicester manager, Claude Puel revealed the utility player will be undergoing further examinations with medics to know the extent of the injury.

Puel is under-pressure having overseen an underwhelming start to the season during which the Foxes have lost five of their opening nine games, including their last two fixtures against Everton and Arsenal.

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

"We came back in the second half with desire and positivity and it was a good second half with a lot of chances". He needs to have it examined and then we will see after.

Pellegrini declined to be drawn on the dismissal of Noble adding: "I haven't seen it". I am happy the way the team is playing. It was really, really hard in the first half although we had more chances. However, just eight minutes later, Noble went in late on Ndidi, catching the Nigerian high on the shin.
