The second objective David Moyes – overseeing distantly again as he keeps on segregating following a positive COVID-19 test – and his instructing staff longed for showed up eleven minutes before half-time in marginally unordinary conditions.
Cresswell's clearing punt was more in trust than desire, yet Fornals foreseen the opportunity, beat the offside snare, controlled the dropping ball sublimely and completed certainly past Schmeichel with his left foot.
Into the subsequent half and, beside an early panic when Harvey Barnes volleyed Lukasz Fabianski's rushed freedom well wide, West Ham again conveyed the more noteworthy danger.
Antonio headed the exceptional Coufal's cross into Schmeichel's gloves, set up Fornals, whose first-time shot was impeded by Jonny Evans, lastly shot low yet directly at the Leicester commander and goalkeeper.
The odds continued coming, as well, with Masuaku seeing an exertion held by Schmeichel before the imperious Declan Rice conveyed the ball from his own half before shooting a shot against the underside of the crossbar.
What's more, Rice assumed a significant part in the securing third a little ways from full-time, serenely clearing to Fornals, who length and delivered Bowen, who coordinated his run eminently before tranquilly completing past Schmeichel to make sure about a lavishly merited three focuses and ascend into the best seven.
