Slaven Bilic was left “frustrated” and “disappointed” following his side’s 2-2 draw away at Leicester this weekend, as reported by BBC Sport.
The Hammers had gone behind to Jamie Vardy’s 18th minute opener but two late goals from Andy Carroll and Aaron Cresswell turned the tide against a 10 man Leicester, who saw their leading striker dismissed for an alleged dive early in the second half.
A clumsy challenge from Carroll in the 94th minute saw the home side awarded a penalty, which was calmly converted by substitute Leonardo Ulloa, which subsequently denied West Ham what would have been a huge three points in their search for fourth spot.
Bilic, who felt his side “did enough to win the game”, voiced his exasperation following the draw:
“We first made a mistake, because we had the ball in the middle of the park.” said the former Croatia manager.
“You can’t lose the ball in that situation, and after that what happened makes us and me feel very frustrated and very disappointed.”
The draw was West Ham’s fourth on the bounce in the Premier League, and leaves them without a win in all competitions since the beginning of March, where they amassed resounding comeback at Everton.
The Hammers face Watford at the Boleyn Ground on Wednesday night, and a win could see them move back up to 5th in the table if Manchester United lose against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.
