Jesse Lingard continued his stunning form with West Ham by scoring twice in the first half to set the Hammers on course for a 3-2 crucial victory over fellow Champions League hopefuls Leicester City.

The two sides came into the weekend occupy­ing the last two Champions League spots, before wins for Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday nudged West Ham down to sixth place.

But David Moyes’ men showed they are up for the challenge of qualifying for Europe’s top club competi­tion for the first time, going 3-0 up and holding on dur­ing a late Leicester rally to climb back into fourth.
