West Ham boss Pellegrini: You don't do that in the 93rd minute!

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini admits their late defeat to Wolves was tough to take.

West Ham were handed a second home loss of the campaign by Adama Traore's injury time winner, leaving the boss frustrated at a missed opportunity.

“It's a tough loss, because it's our second home game and we've lost them both," he explained.

“We've made a big mistake for their goal, especially because it was the 93rd minute and it was our own free-kick. In the 93rd minute you must go to the other box and play the long ball, but we played short, we lost the ball and they scored the goal.

“There are a lot of things that we need to improve, I was not happy with the first 45 minutes. In the second half we improved, but it still wasn't enough because we didn't score from the chances we created. You are not going to take points if you don't score from the chances you make.

“We don't have points and have lost six points at home, but I am confident because I see the players working well during the week Now we must try to take the pressure off and try to play 90 minutes in the way we work every day.

“For us, no points in four games is not [indicative] of the quality of squad we have."
