West Ham United were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United in the FA Cup last night.
West Ham were beaten 2-1 by United yesterday, and they failed to show their best throughout the match.
The Red Devils went 2-0 up when both Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini found the back of the net, and it was not until the Hammers were staring defeat in the face that they seemed to react.
Bilic’s men did start pushing when they were trailing, and they managed to pull a goal back through James Tomkins, but it was not enough.
West Ham fans were understandably gutted to see their side lose the match, and they have criticised Bilic on social media site Twitter.
Most Hammers fans felt that the Croatian boss got his team selection wrong - with the choices to start Michail Antonio and Enner Valencia both receiving criticism.
The role that Bilic asks Kouyate to play doesn't match his strengths as a player. Obiang is more suited to that particular role IMO.— West Ham News (@WHUFC_News) April 13, 2016
Has Bilic taken full responsibility for the poor team selection in his post match interview ? Did he explain the starting 11? #WHUFC— Darren Skingle (@DRS_Engineering) April 13, 2016
@whufc_official that was far far far from our best, poor selection from Bilic, which can't often say but it didn't work one bit— NickJusticeWHUFC (@NickJustice94) April 13, 2016
@WHUFC_News bilic should have played kouyate CB— Jay Bedell (@JayBedell) April 13, 2016
Tomkins RB and played obiang in mid
People need to stop tweeting about Payet lol. He wasn't the problem at all. Start with Bilic's team choice and tactics then Valencia #whufc— Daniel Hennessey (@henn88) April 13, 2016
As great as bilic has been great for #WHUFC. But his decision to play anotonio RB cost us a wembley place— 父 Adam Smith 父 (@Adam27996) April 13, 2016
Both goals have come due to Antonio still being right-back. Bilic had to change it at HT and didn't.— West Ham News (@WHUFC_News) April 13, 2016
Manchester United will now go on to face Everton in the semi-final of the FA Cup, while West Ham’s attention will return to their quest to claim a top four spot in the Premier League.
