West Ham boss Pellegrini: Neither side deserved to win

West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini has said that neither side deserved to claim three points in today’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield in West Yorkshire.

Alex Pritchard gave the hosts the lead after just six minutes before £40 million summer signing Felipe Anderson equalised with just 15 minutes to play to earn a point.

West Ham had the majority of possession, while Huddersfield had the majority of chances, and speaking after the game, Manuel Pellegrini didn’t think that either side deserved to take home all of the spoils.

“We didn’t play well in the first half after their goal. You have to fight for every ball when you come here, they play with a great intensity and aggression. We also kept the ball too much in our own half, this is a team that aggressively presses you.

“In the second half we improved a little bit more, we created chances and we got the goal. But if you review the 90 minutes, the draw was the result that both teams deserved.”

West Ham’s next game is against Pellegrini’s former side Man City, while Huddersfield travel to face newly promoted Wolves.
