Pellegrini reckons West Ham draw against Crystal Palace ‘a fair result.’

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini believes his sides 1-1 draw away to Crystal Palace earlier today was a fair result.

The Hammers took the lead in the 27th minute when skipper Mark Noble slotted home from the penalty spot, with Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha equalising halfway through the second period.

Speaking after the game Pellegrini was happy to come away from Selhurst Park with a point, although he wasn’t entirely enamoured with his sides second half display.

”It was a good game. In 95 minutes I think that was the fair result,’’ the Chilean coach told BBC’s MOTD.

”We have a lot of players missing, we played away, so I’m happy with the first 45 minutes and not too happy with the second 45.”

Despite Pellegrini thinking the result was fair, Palace felt they deserved more, with Zaha having six shots on goal, more than the entire West Ham team combined.

Today’s result sees West Ham move up to 10th in the Premier League table.
