Slaven Bilic on his one disappointed about West Ham United v Leicester City

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United drew 2-2 with Leicester City in their latest outing.

Slaven Bilic has told West Ham United’s official site that he was disappointed with the way his side reacted after taking the lead against Leicester City.

West Ham fell behind against Leicester last weekend, when Jamie Vardy netted in the first half.

However, when Vardy was sent off, the Hammers seized the initiative and started to play on the front foot.

West Ham were rewarded for their persistence, when Andy Carroll first scored from the spot, before Aaron Cresswell blasted them into the lead.

At that stage, West Ham looked the likely winners, but they let up and allowed Leicester to come back into the match.

The Foxes earned a controversial penalty in the last minute when Carroll was adjudged to have made a foul in the penalty area, but BIlic was more disappointed with his team’s reaction after taking the lead than the debatable refereeing decision.

“Of course that game is still fresh, but we played well,” Bilic said. “Leicester had won their last five or six games 1-0 and kept clean sheets, but we scored two goals and were good.

“The only thing I wasn’t happy with was the way we played after we scored our second goal. We just waited for the final whistle, didn’t keep the ball and we should have done better, to be fair.”

West Ham’s failure to pick up the three points against Leicester has left their chances of making it into the top four looking very slim.

The Hammers are now seven points behind Arsenal, and they will surely have to win their next match against Watford to have any chance of catching Arsene Wenger’s side.
