Ian Wright suggests West Ham are wobbling, criticises usually fantastic goalkeeper Adrian

Ian Wright has criticised West Ham goalkeeper Adrian.

Pundit Ian Wright has told The Sun that he thinks Adrian could have done better with Crystal Palace's first goal on Saturday, and thinks West Ham are wobbling.

The Hammers came back from the international break having drawn 2-2 with Chelsea, and were looking for a win to keep up their aspirations of a Champions League qualification finish this season.

However, it was a frustrating afternoon for Slaven Bilic's men, as whilst Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet cancelled out Damien Delaney's opener, a Cheikhou Kouyate red card allowed Palace to snatch an equaliser through Dwight Gayle.

West Ham now lie three points adrift of the top four, and whilst that may look unlikely, Europa League qualification would still be a huge achievement for Bilic and co, as they should still finish above the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and possibly Manchester United.

Now though, pundit and former Hammers striker Ian Wright has told The Sun that whilst he thinks West Ham have been playing good football of late, they have been wobbling since it became realistic for them to qualify for next season's Champions League.

However, Wright had criticism for goalkeeper Adrian. Almost always a top performer for the Hammers, Adrian was arguably at fault for Delaney's goal, as with the ball going out of play, the Spaniard scooped the ball back into the box and Delaney turned the ball home - prompting confusion from Wright.

"They have wobbled a little bit," said Wright. "They've been playing good stuff. They've got everything for me, and Adrian has been fantastic this season, but when you consider the manner in which Palace scored Delaney's goal, I cannot understand that."

"Goalkeepers are told to push the ball away, keep it low, away from the goal. The ball did bounce up, but your reaction has got to be to push it away. He's scooped it, his reaction should be to push it," he added.

Do you think West Ham are wobbling?
