Hammers boss Pellegrini: LFC scored 'too much offside' goal
- Manuel concedes the Reds were dominant throughout the game
- He's unhappy with an offside goal, but remains positive as the season has just started
"We need to improve. We didn't play well, we didn't create too many chances apart from the first 15 minutes of the second half. So we need to continue working. I must be clear, we need to improve and need to play better. Liverpool deserved to win.
"Of course we are absolutely positive, we are not going to crush that optimism. It is the first game of the season, we have nine new players, we play against one of the best, if not the best, teams in the league.
Pellegrini: "Liverpool deserved to win, but I don't think the difference was three goals.....sorry, four goals." #LFC— Neil Jones (@neiljonesgoal) August 12, 2018
"We are not happy, we don't want to lose 4-0, but we are sure we are in the correct way and will continue working.
"We started the second half and they scored a clear offside goal. Too much offside. But those things happen in football.
"Maybe for me the second goal was more psychological because it was the last second of the first half. Arriving in 2-0 down instead of 1-0 down."
