Adrian: What the Leicester defeat showed about West Ham

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has suggested the side's attack needs to be deadlier.

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has told the club’s website the main lesson he feel the club learned during the 2-1 defeat against Leicester.

The defeat over the weekend could have been far worse if it wasn’t for the heroics of Adrian from the penalty spot and he’s had his say on where he feels the Hammers need to improve ahead of the game against Stoke.

“We need to be more clinical in the finish, but as I said that’s the way it goes sometimes,” said the shot stopper.

“You have opportunities and shoot, but don’t score. That’s how it was for us at Leicester.”

West Ham do have some very creative and attacking players who get the side into good positions during big games.

The problem the side seems to have had is converting the pressure situations into physical rewards, which can help to improve West Ham’s position on the Premier League table.

The attack need to be deadlier up front if the side are to have any chance of making it into the Premier League’s top eight.

The Hammers are currently chasing down a four point gap from Swansea just above them and if they can be lethal in how they attack and putting away good chances, they should be able to chase that gap down over the remaining games in the season.

Sam Allardyce needs good performances and results over the rest of the campaign to improve his chances of earning a new contract and he should be in the ear of all of his attacking players.
