Bilic Disappointed at Loss to Spurs

Bilic Disappointed at Loss to Spurs

Losing to Tottenham Hotspur is always a bitter pill to swallow.

But at one stage in the match, at the London Stadium, when the Hammers were 3-0 down, it looked as if the final score-line could become embarrassing.

But the Hammers fought back, after Tottenham were reduced to ten-men, almost snatching the unlikeliest of draws, another ten minutes of play could have seen West Ham do just that.

After the game, Slaven Bilic spoke to the media and the boss had this to say,

'We are disappointed with the result. We started really well. We defended well, with shape and didn't give them pockets of space. Before the first goal we had lots of attacking opportunities but we didn't use it. Then we make a mistake and their finish was clinical. The first half was nowhere near 2-0.

'We came back and after the red card we pressed them. In the end we came to 3-2 but there wasn't enough. The game was very hectic with fouls and time-wasting. We showed good pride to come back.

'When you play against the top teams, you give a little and from that little they create a chance and score.

'It was very even at 0-0. It is very hard to come back after 2-0.'

The Hammers entertain Swansea City next weekend, it is a fixture you get the feeling we badly need to win.
