Pellegrini admits West Ham were poor in attack and defence after Wolves defeat

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini pulled no punches after seeing his side lose 3-0 away to Wolves tonight, admitting the Hammers were not good enough in either attack or defence.

The East London outfit have now lost their last three games – including an embarrassing defeat to League One’s bottom side AFC Wimbledon – and Chilean coach Pellegrini conceded that he needs to find out why his team’s form has dropped so dramatically as of late.

“The first half was a very tight game for both teams but in the second half I think we were absolutely out of the game. We conceded two from set pieces and had no chances of our own,” Pellegrini told Sky Sports.

“If in 90 minutes you don’t create one clear chance you must be very frustrated, maybe you can be not very creative but defend very well, but we defended poorly as well.

“We must know why we are playing so bad in the last two weeks after beating Arsenal,

“Lukasz Fabianski played very well. He made two or three saves that were clear options for Wolves to score also.”
