Nevertheless, Pellegrini thought the progress his side have made was clear to see, adding: "I would answer similar - the same way as I did after the last game which we lost against Tottenham".

"It is a sloppy goal from our point of view but then we got the bit of luck that we needed".

With the point, West Ham moved above Burnley in the Premier League table, but their winless run stretched to three games. "For me, they are a very good team".

Jamie Vardy is set to be benched when Leicester face West Ham, ramping up the tension between him and under-fire boss Claude Puel.

A 30th-minute goal scored by Fabian Balbuena put the Hammers ahead, only for it to be overwritten by a late equaliser from Wilfried Ndidi, whose deflected effort flew right into the top corner of the net, right past exceptional Łukasz Fabiański. When I look at the games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights it's hard. "They went down to 10 men and we didn't take advantage of that".

"Jamie has had a hard start because he came back from the World Cup without a pre-season and without good work with his team-mates", the Frenchman told reporters on Thursday.
