West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has apologised to the club's supporters for Saturday's home defeat to Leicester.
The Hammers director gave manager Slaven Bilic a stark warning last week, insisting they had to stop conceding early goals after a loss at Bournemouth.
But Bilic, who played down Sullivan's remarks in midweek, saw his side concede two goals in the first eight minutes in a 3-2 home defeat to the champions.
And Sullivan said: "I think all we can do after Saturday's defeat is say sorry to the supporters.
"To be 2-0 down after seven minutes of any football match, be it in the Premier League or in your local Sunday League, makes it very difficult to get a positive result.
"In parts of the second half we were very good. But, we need to be good before we are losing.
"We have to find out why we are conceding so many goals and fix it because it is obviously harder to win games when you concede two or three goals in a game than if you keep a clean sheet.
"The next few games now become vital for our season. We go to Hull City, then to Arsenal, before we welcome Swansea City to London Stadium."
