Slaven Bilic was less than happy after West Ham United’s 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the London Derby on Sunday at White Hart Lane.
The Hammers were dominated by the Spurs for most of the game, and the Croatian manager was disappointed with what he saw from his side.
“I cannot pretend I am not disappointed because I am and the dressing room is very, very quiet, of course,” Bilic told whufc.com after the loss. “We are all disappointed and it simply wasn’t us. We didn’t play good.
“We started OK and had some points where we were good around their box. They were pressing and are good in that and scored a goal from their first chance with a bit of luck, but we were too deep in that situation and invited them to be close to our goal a lot of times, and then there’s always a risk you will make a mistake.
“To be fair, the second goal was a cheap one from the corner. At halftime I said we were not happy but we were still in the game and I was expecting us to bounce back and score a goal, then it is still open, big time.
“Their third goal obviously killed us in that moment and after that unfortunately, we have to be happy with 4-1, which is a very, very bad result, especially against Spurs in a derby game.”
The Hammers will look to redeem themselves as they host West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
