Next Match: at home to Sunderland, December 14
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce felt the 4-1 defeat at Liverpool was a harsh reflection on his side. Luis Suarez scored twice to go with a Mamadou Sakho goal and Guy Demel's own goal for Liverpool, while Martin Skrtel also scored at the wrong end. "I think we showed in the first half that we didn't deserve to be 1-0 down," Allardyce said. "The game at this level is 90-95 minutes long not 45. For me we didn't recover from that (second) goal going into the start of the second half and that was the disappointing thing."
