His words, “Our performance today, it was enough to win the game. We gave easy goals away, this is unusual — big mistakes that lead to big chances and easy goals. We’ve done this against United, Watford, and today.

“We make too many big mistakes; we need to take care of the details. There is no need to ask big questions or start doubting the big picture, this game at West Ham is about details. Without making big mistakes, there was a big chance we could have won this game.”
