Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel continued his fantastic recent run of form as he denied Andy Carroll a late equaliser on Saturday.
The Foxes stopper had already made a number of good saves during the 3-2 Premier League victory at the London Stadium, but the one to keep out the West Ham striker was particularly stunning.
Robert Snodgrass whipped a free kick into the box in the 93rd minute, which landed at the feet of Carroll who hit a shot, but in a mirror image of dad Peter, Schmeichel got down low to deny the Hammers a late equaliser.
It certainly caught the eye of many spectators as Leicester picked up their first away league win of the season, including former Foxes striker Gary Lineker who tweeted: "Truly incredible save from @kschmeichel1 to keep Leicester ahead. It was Dadesque."
The save also drew praise from manager Craig Shakespeare, who added: "That was very important, they were pivotal saves. I think he's in the best form since I've been here. He's pulled out some crucial saves over the last couple of weeks."
The match-winning performance from the Denmark international came after he also saved two penalties during the Champions League round of 16 tie with Sevilla to help Leicester into the quarter-finals, where they were drawn against Atletico Madrid.
