Leicester 2-1 West Ham: Foxes 'deserved to win' - Pearson

Nigel Pearson says Leicester City "deserved to win" after Andy King's fortuitous late goal saw them beat West Ham 2-1 at home.

Esteban Cambiasso's 20-yard left-foot strike gave the hosts an early lead, and David Nugent had a penalty saved before Chiekhou Kouyate equalised for the Hammers.

But substitute King turned in Jamie Vardy's mis-hit shot with four minutes to play to move the Foxes to within four points of safety.
