EPL: Maddison Scores but injured as Leicester win


By Sedara Oluwadara

James Maddison scored the opening goal in Leicester’s victory over West Ham at London Stadium but left the field with an apparent leg injury after 25 minutes.

The 25-year-old received his call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup in Qatar earlier this week.

Maddison, who has now scored seven goals in the Premier League this season, was able to walk off the pitch and didn’t appear to be in any significant pain.

West Ham were more involved in the game after Maddison’s departure but Craig Dawson gave away a penalty which was well saved by Lukasz Fabianski from Youri Tielemans’ low drive.

But Harvey Barnes finished off a lovely counter-attacking move when he slotted past Fabianksi to seal a third consecutive away win for the Foxes.

Having won six games at home in the Premier League West Ham have now lost their last two on the spin at London Stadium, suffering defeat last weekend after conceding a last-minute goal to Crystal Palace.
