Post-match press conference: Manuel Pellegrini v Chelsea [audio]


Filed: Monday, 8th April 2019
By: Staff Writer


Manuel Pellegrini revealed that he was happy with West Ham's second half performance - but was equally disappointed by their lack of determination in the first half.

The Hammers boss admitted that the Hammers were distinctly second best during the first half when his team adopted an unusual 4-2-3-1 formation.

However Pellegrini insisted that there was a marked difference after the break - even though it ended up the same way as the first, with West Ham conceding without scoring.

"We didn't start the game with the pace you need to play," he told Sky Sports. "We changed the pace of the play and played further away from our own box and had the chances to draw."
