Manuel Pellegrini said that his West Ham United side were unlucky to have lost 2-0 to Watford and that they deserved more from the game.
The Hammers went down 2-0 at the London Stadium in a game where the home side had the better of the chances but just couldn’t put them away.
Goals from Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu were enough to give the visitors the victory, leaving West Ham boss Pellegrini to lament his sides missed chances.
“We deserved a little bit more, I think, at least to draw the game,” Pellegrini told BBC’s MOTD.
“Going a goal behind made it more difficult in that we were playing under pressure. We had three or four clear chances to at least draw the game.
“Last game we scored from most of our chances, today we couldn’t. The penalty gave Watford that impetus. Before the goal, we had three very dangerous opportunities. We dominated the game.
“Once they scored they were calm while we were more nervous. If you asked me when we started the season, after losing the first four games I would be very happy with the points we have now.”
Today’s result brought an end to West Ham’s four-game winning run which has lifted them up and away from the relegation zone. Pellegrini’s side is now 12th in the league and just three points behind Watford who are in 7th.
