Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert: How did we lose?

West Ham fought back to defeat Huddersfield Town 4-3 at London stadium.

Proceedings were going smoothly having led 3-1 on the hour mark, in which the men from HD1 had come from behind thanks to Mark Noble's penalty giving the hosts the advantage, but it wasn't to be as Angelo Ogbonna and Chicharito (2) snatched it; an ending that had Terriers manager Jan Siewert bewildered.

He said: "I have so many thoughts after today's game. Since the last game, we worked really hard. When you score three times in the game and go away from here with a defeat, it is hard to describe at the moment.

"I knew scoring three times at West Ham wouldn't be easy. I've worked it out, and I cannot believe we lost this game."

He continued: "This (the injuries to Bacuna and Grant) made it even harder for us, but there will be no serious injuries. I know the Premier League and its intensity, and we were short on numbers. The players who went off left it all on the pitch and they made it hard for me to substitute them.

"I don't know what to say, but I tip my hat to the supporters. They have a very good feeling for what I'm doing here. For me, it's hard to describe and I just feel disappointed.

"Of course, the application was there, but for me it is about winning. We want to win games. We now have seven more games to represent this club."
