West Ham midfielder Lingard: Mistakes will cost us Europe place

West Ham midfielder Jesse Lingard says mistakes cost them defeat to Everton on Sunday.

The Hammers lost ground in the race for the top four in defeat to Everton on Sunday, with Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen both missing golden chances as West Ham failed to register a shot on target.

“It's just about focusing, concentrating and not being sloppy," Lingard, on-loan from Manchester United, told the club website. “We need to have the right attitude going into those games so we can start quickly and start on the front foot and win those matches.

“For us as a team we're together and trying to help each other to score and get into the right positions.

“Football is like that. It's about how we deal with it during the game and how we adapt. I felt we adapted fairly well and dominated the game, but we just couldn't create clear-cut chances and finish them."
