West Ham moved up to fifth in the Premier League table as headed goals from Tomas Soucek and Angelo Ogbonna secured a 2-1 victory at Leeds on Friday Night Football.

Leeds took an early lead as Mateusz Klich (5) scored from the penalty spot at the second time of asking after VAR had ruled Lukasz Fabianski, who brought down Patrick Bamford to give away the spot-kick, to be off his line in saving the initial penalty.

However, the hosts’ problems from set pieces continued to haunt them as Soucek brought the Hammers level in the 25th minute, before Ogbonna sealed all three points 10 minutes from time.

Victory sees David Moyes’ side leap up to fifth, four points behind league leaders Tottenham and second-placed Liverpool. Meanwhile, Leeds stay 14th following a sixth defeat of the season.
