West Ham 0 Liverpool 4 - Views from the Bench

Was the defeat, at the hands of Liverpool, a one off or is it the sign of things to come?

For me, it was the manner with which we slipped to defeat that concerned me the most, a lacklustre display with an eleven lacking ambition, desire and drive.

Following the defeat, both managers fulfilled their duties and spoke to the media.

Slaven Bilic, on the back of what has been a poor season, remarked,

'It was a very difficult season, a very long one. We had many, many obstacles. We needed time to adjust to the stadium but we knew we would.

'We had too many injuries throughout the season, that's why I would like to give credit to the players.

'I think we will benefit long term from this season and from the knowledge and experience.'


Let`s hope so, the move to the new stadium was supposed to herald the arrival of a new dawn with West Ham heading upwards.

As for Jurgen Klopp, he had this to say,

'It was a fantastic game but difficult. At the end it was amazing but the start was not that good.
'We scored some really nice goals but in the first half West Ham had big, big chances - especially to equalise before half-time.

'It was really unlucky for West Ham, but it was really lucky from our position. West Ham have not had too much luck this season."


Perhaps not, Lady Luck does seem, when it comes to injuries, appear to have deserted us. Liverpool, meanwhile, are hoping to clinch their Champions League spot in their final game against relegated Middlesbrough, with Klopp further adding,

'Middlesbrough have nothing to lose but we have everything to lose.

'The first thing the boys said in the dressing room - and I didn't have to tell them - was 'one more game'.

'If we win we deserve to be in the Champions League. If not we don't deserve it.'


Anyone else wish we were in their position?
