West Hmam United manager Slaven Bilic believes Victor Moses and his team-mates showed a good reaction against Everton, insisting he cannot be unhappy with only taking a point from the 1-1 draw at the Boleyn Ground.
The Nigerian international who played the entire duration of the game and his colleagues maintained their sixth place position in the Premier League table with a 1-1 draw against an Everton side that thrashed Sunderland 6-2 in their last tie before Saturday’s encounter.
There was more bad news for West Ham in the second half when influential duo Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia were both forced out injury, but Bilic felt his side showed enough character to take something from the game.
“It was a good performance from us and it was important after the game against Watford to come back and show a good reaction in front of our own fans. I cannot be unhappy with the way the team played.
“I thought for ninety minutes we looked as a team. We are never happy with a point, especially when we play at home, but we tried and had chances.
“We played against a very good team and I have to praise the players.
“It was a cheap goal to give away. We lost the ball deep in their half and at a time when we didn’t need to lose it.” Bilic told the West Ham official website.
Manuel Lanzini scored a wonder goal on the half hour mark but the West Ham failed to stop Romelu Lukaku getting on the score sheet once again when he grabbed an equalizer just before half-time.
