Leicester 2-2 West Ham LIVE RESULT: Zouma WITHDRAWS from Hammers XI as Dawson nets last gasp equaliser in… – The Sun

WEST HAM have drawn at Leicester after a last gasp Craig Dawson equaliser.
Kurt Zouma pulled out of the starting XI due to injuries and vision problems, West Ham have stated.
Zouma caused fury in the week after a video of him kicking and hitting his cat was uploaded to social media.
On the pitch, Jarrod Bowen gave West Ham the lead before an inexplicable handball from Aaron Cresswell saw the hosts equalise from the penalty spot.
Leicester then went ahead through a Ricardo Pereira header before Dawson bundled in a controversial late equaliser.
The ball was found to have come off the upper part of the centre-back's arm but VAR chose not to recommend a review.
