Pellegrini: No excuses for West Ham’s very bad start to season

West Ham remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League after losing 1-0 at home to newly promoted Wolves earlier today.

Expectations were high at the London Stadium at the start of this campaign after the East London club appointed former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini as their new coach and made a raft of high-profile signings.

However, it is now four losses on the trot for the Hammer, with Chilean coach Pellegrini admitting afterwards that it has been a poor start to his reign as West Ham boss.

“I don’t think it is a bad start, it is a very bad start. We can’t lose six points here at home like we have. Playing away against Liverpool and Arsenal and you don’t play so well is understandable. Here at home to lose we must be very worried.

“In the first half we didn’t play like the home team looking for three points. The second we improved a lot, made that mistake in the last minute that lost us the game.

When asked if his sides struggles are down to some of his summer signings taking time to settle into life in the Premier League Pellegrini replied:

“You can always have a lot of excuses for results, but it is not normal to lose four games.” He added.

“In the training ground we are doing well, no lack of attitude. We have to take that work during the week to a game where there is that added pressure. It is just to four games , we won’t stop fighting now. We are just starting and will resolve that problem”
