West Ham suffer another blow in their injury crisis with more casualties

Manuel Pellegrini accused Manchester City's Bernardo Silva of throwing himself to the floor to win the decisive penalty in West Ham's 1-0 defeat to the title challengers. They frustrated, they tackled and they held their shape, but in the end it was not enough.

"But obviously all I wish is Manchester City to win".

"I have said before that we are still in the relegation battle so we have to be sure we approach every game like a final and not thinking it will be an easy game".

"It was really special and I always appreciate the love from Manchester City fans", he added. They passed it about delightfully, put huge pressure on the West Ham defence and on another day, they would have been two or three ahead in the first 20 minutes. "Yet the Hammers" dogged defending frustrated them and it was not until the introduction of Bernardo Silva off the bench they made the breakthrough.

Fernandinho wins the closing five stats with 0.5 more shots per game, 2.2 per cent more pass success percentage, 0.6 more aerial duels won per match, one more Man-of-the-Match award and a better average WhoScored match rating out of ten by 0.47 points. The Portuguese won a penalty just before the hour and Aguero took advantage from the spot, netting his 25th goal of the season.

"I think Lukasz only had one save after the penalty, so I think we defended well", said the West Ham manager.

He believes that the experience of winning England's top flight will stand them in good stead coming into the business end of the season. 'Hopefully Liverpool will drop some points but first of all we have to be focused on our game. Besides not scoring [more], I think we played very well.
