Hammers boss reveals frustration

5th February 2019, 00:52 by Michael Holland

Manuel Pellegrini was left frustrated after his West Ham team were denied victory against Liverpool by a refereeing error.

The Hammers had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium after Michail Antonio quickly cancelled out Sadio Mane's controversial 22nd-minute opener.

Reds midfielder James Milner was offside before setting up Mane's goal, something backed up by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Pellegrini was left frustrated, however, following three successive losses, including an embarrassing FA Cup exit at League One Wimbledon, he was pleased with the performances of his players.

"Yes, disappointed, without any doubt," he said. "If you create four chances and didn't score and they score a goal one metre and a half offside, you must be disappointed and worried.

"I think we played in the way I like this team to play against every team.

"Maybe in the moment that we were (on a losing run), nobody believed that we could do it but I was absolutely sure and I trusted the players that we can play in the way we did.

"I think we did a complete performance, because against the team that has the best defence we created so many chances."
