West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has suggested to Football.London that he was pleased to see that his team did not fold against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.

The Hammers lost 3-2 to Tottenham at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs were 3-0 up after 60 minutes, but the home side launched a comeback thereafter and scored twice.

It was an overall disappointing day at the office for West Ham, but manager Bilic has suggested that there was one satisfaction - that his side did not fold against their London rivals.

“That is one satisfaction, that we don't stop, we continued to do it and stay in the system and turn the game around so, OK, fair enough,” Bilic told Football.London when pointed out that a lot of teams might have folded but West Ham did not.

“I told the players that they showed character against a top team, if we had a bit more time we could have turned it around."
