West Ham came from behind to beat Leeds in a thrilling Premier League contest at Elland Road.
Leeds took the lead after just five minutes through Mateusz Klich’s retaken penalty, which was initially saved by Lukasz Fabianski, but the West Ham goalkeeper was adjudged to have stepped off his line by the video assistant referee.
For the Hammers, Sebastian Haller’s spin and weak shot was saved by Illan Meslier and Jarrod Bowen blazed over before Tomas Soucek equalised through a header at the far post.
Leeds’ Patrick Bamford struck narrowly wide at the start of the second half and although home goalkeeper Meslier made a stunning, reflex save to deny Fabian Balbuena’s header, he could do nothing about Angelo Ogbonna’s powerful effort late on.
The victory takes West Ham up to fifth in the Premier League with Leeds remaining 14th.
