West Ham United brought an end to a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats as they battled to a 2-2 draw at Leeds United on Wednesday.

The writing looked to be on the wall for the visitors after teenage forward Wilfried Gnonto gave Leeds the lead in the 27th minute, but David Moyes’s side responded well and deservedly levelled just before halftime through a Lucas Paqueta penalty.

With supporters still taking their seats for the second half, Gianluca Scamacca stunned Elland Road with a second for West Ham 44 seconds after the restart to complete the turnaround.

Leeds toiled as the rain came down, but a thunderbolt out of the blue from Rodrigo restored parity once more with 20 minutes to go.

Both sides had chances to win it but had to settle for a point apiece, with West Ham remaining 17th in the table, level on 15 points with Everton in the relegation zone, while Leeds are two points clear of the bottom three in 14th.

Leeds and West Ham play out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Elland Road, in a game where either side could have snatched the three points. Wilfried Gnoto scored his first Premier League goal for the Whites with a brilliant finish on his left foot, but Lucas Paqueta answered from the penalty spot after Jarrod Bowen was fouled by Pascal Struijk. Gianluca Scamacca capitalised on a mistake by Brendon Aaronson to put the visitors ahead early in the second half, only for Rodrigo Moreno to answer to level the scores. Rodrigo had two great chances to win the game for the hosts, while Michail Antonio came a whisker away on the stretch in stoppage time. Both sides will be pleased to leave with a share of the spoils.

WHAT A SAVE! Fabianski saves a point for West Ham with a point-blank stop to deny Rodrigo. Cooper nods Greenwood's free-kick towards the near post where Rodrigo connects with a header, but the West Ham keeper produces a brilliant save to turn it past the post.

INCHES AWAY! Rice plays Benrahma into space with a perfect pass on the left flank. He bends a dangerous cross to the back post that Antonio just cannot reach on the slide. So close for the Hammers.
