West Ham skipper Nolan: We must learn from Everton defeat

West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan says they must learn from defeat at Everton.

Nolan, who made his first start since the opening day of the season at Goodison Park, felt West Ham were worthy of a point on Merseyside.

"Saturday was a very disappointing result, first of all with the first goal which shouldn't have been," he told whufc.com. "It was a blatant offside, so we're disappointed with that.

"Then we're disappointed with the second goal with the way we've given it away from our corner. It's come out and they've had a great break and great finish, but it shouldn't have got there.

"I thought we dominated the game throughout. After we went 1-0 down we responded really well, but it wasn't to be. We've got to learn from that now and learn quickly.

"Taking the positives, I don't think there have been too many teams who have gone to Everton and got an easy ride. You never do at Everton and I never have as a professional, but that was probably the most comfortable we've been.

"The fact we've gone away from Everton disappointed that we've not got anything shows [how far we've come]. We've got a run of games now where we feel we can pick up points, and with boys coming back it's going to be interesting "
