West Ham defender says no ‘positives’ to take from Watford defeat

West Ham’s Issa Diop says his side will take ‘no positives’ from Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Watford.

West Ham’s four-game winning run came to an abrupt end at The London Stadium, with Troy Deeney and Gerard Delefeou scoring the goals to seal an away win for Javi Gracia’s Watford.

Manuel Pellegrini’s she missed the opportunity to move into the Premier League’s top-six, and French defender Diop admits his side will be looking to move on quickly to their next fixture.

“I think we created some chances against Watford but, in my opinion, I don’t think you can take any positives when you lose,” Diop told

”We are very disappointed because, by winning this game we could have been in the top six.”

“But we lost and we now need to move past it, and be focused for Southampton.”

“We have a quick turnaround and it’s a chance to start another run of really good results in the next match. We can go for the win in the next game and hopefully we can put on another big performance when we go to Southampton.

“I hope we can win this game and get back to winning ways.”

The Hammers next game is away against a rejuvenated Southampton on 27 December.
