Guy Demel: West Ham were unlucky to lose

Guy Demel believes West Ham were unlucky to suffer a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday, according to Sports Mole.

The right back scored the home sides equaliser on the stroke of half time, prodding the ball into an empty net after the ball broke his way from a corner.

However replays suggested there had been a foul by Hammer’s forward Andy Carroll in the build up, an incident spotted by the linesman, but overruled by referee Anthony Taylor.

But Demel believes that despite the fortunate nature of his goal, the Hammers could still count themselves unlucky to come away from the game with nothing, and pointed to the second penalty awarded to Liverpool in the second half.

“I think we played really well as a team and we were a bit unlucky at the end,” he told the club’s official website. “I think it’s the type of performance that we have to keep on [producing]. At the beginning of the season we played good football and kept losing games and Sunday was kind of the same, because I think we played really well.

“I’ve never seen Liverpool being such in a tough position, they lost so many balls because we put pressure on them and we had chances as well. But again, that’s football, on Sunday we were pretty unlucky with the referee’s decisions, but we have to move on.”
