In the wake of Sunday's thrilling 2-2 draw with league leaders Leicester City, former West Ham United goalkeeper David James perfectly illustrated how exciting a season it has been for the London side.

Slaven Bilic's men took a hard-earned point from the King Power Stadium in a stunning finale which saw three goals in the final seven minutes after Jamie Vardy's red card.

The Hammers ultimately missed out on a crucial victory in their hunt for European qualification as referee Jon Moss - who had already made several questionable decisions - awarded a soft-looking penalty to the Foxes in injury-time, which was converted by Leonardo Ulloa.

After the game, goalkeeper-turned-pundit James, who played 102 times in three seasons at Upton Park, highlighted an extraordinary statistic showing just how exciting the club's season has been.

He tweeted: "8 draws of 2-2 or more for @whufc_official this season in the league. #entertaining"

The Hammers have both scored and conceded nine goals in their last four matches after Sunday's match, following the 3-3 draw with Arsenal, and the 2-2 results against Crystal Palace and Chelsea.

Bilic's men have also shared four goals with Norwich City on both meetings of the clubs, Manchester City, and Sunderland since the start of the campaign.

In what has been a thrilling season for the club's fans in their final year at Upton Park, the Hammers have found themselves chasing a first ever qualification for the Champions League.

After conceding the last-minute equaliser to the Foxes, West Ham find themselves six points behind Arsenal in the race for fourth spot with just five matches remaining.
