Slaven Bilic describes mood in West Ham dressing room after Watford defeat

Slaven Bilic claims his West Ham players are angry after losing 2-0 to Watford.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has told the club's official website that his players are angry having lost 2-0 to Watford this afternoon.

The Hammers went in to the game in high spirits having beaten Chelsea 2-1 last weekend, but endured a torrid afternoon at Vicarage Road.

Odion Ighalo benefited from poor defensive work by Andy Carroll to put Watford in front, and the Nigerian then made it two just after half time with a fine finish.

West Ham's misery was compounded by a late red card for James Collins, who was penalised for hacking down the dangerous Ighalo.

The emotions for West Ham fans are a far cry from those of just a week ago, and manager Bilic has now discussed the feelings in the dressing room.

Speaking to the West Ham official Twitter account, Bilic has admitted that the players are 'angry' - and urged the squad to play with that anger every week.


The Hammers will have the opportunity to put this right, but they face a tricky run of games against Everton, Tottenham, West Brom and Manchester United - and Bilic will certainly be hoping that his players can harness the anger they feel tonight in the upcoming games.
