The Hammers suffered a 2-1 loss to their Premier League rivals in the third round of the League Cup at the King Power Stadium.
Joe Dodoo put Leicester in the lead as early as the sixth minute when he found the target from close range, but Argentine attacker Mauro Zarate equalised for West Ham with a 25-yard drive on 27 minutes.
The match went into extra time as it finished 1-1 after 90 minutes. With four minutes of the extra-time period left, Andy King headed home Christian Fuchs’ cross to win the tie for Leicester.
West Ham co-owner Gold has admitted his disappointment with the final result on Twitter, but he has stressed that the team must bounce back with a win against Norwich City at the Boleyn Ground in the Premier League on Saturday.
Disappointed with the result at Leicester tonight but more disappointed for our traveling fans, we must bounce back against Norwich. dg— David Gold (@davidgold) September 23, 2015
