West Ham boss Bilic: We never mugged off Watford

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic insists his players weren't taking the mick against Watford last week.

Bilic wrote for the London Evening Standard: "I like Troy Deeney and I understand why he said and what he said about us 'mugging them off', or whatever term he used after Dimitri Payet's cross for our second goal.

"There was no way anyone was taking the mickey, though. Ricardo Quaresma, for example, puts about 80 per cent of his crosses over in this way. I know in England some people are not impressed by such skills, but I think most neutrals would enjoy our goal and the way it came about."
