West Ham boss Pellegrini satisfied with Huddersfield draw

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini was satisfied with their 1-1 draw at Huddersfield.

The Terriers were off to a flying start with Alex Pritchard scoring in the opening six minutes of their game against West Ham before Felipe Anderson's equaliser.

Pellegrini said: “I'm happy with the draw because we didn't play well. Most people will think that because we won that game before that it would be an easier game, but I said before that it wouldn't be an easy game – there are no easy games.

“All the games have a lot of intensity and Liverpool won here just 1-0. We looked at the way they play this week – every shot, every cross, every second ball is danger for them. In that sense, I think that after the goal, they did better."

Pellegrini was delighted with the Brazilian's goal which ultimately secured the Hammers' point.

“It was a beautiful goal," he reflected. “I don't like too much to analyse the individual performances. As a team, it was not the result we needed to get and not the result we expected to get maybe, but I think finishing like that, it was a good point."
