On the result:

"It was not what we wanted before the game. If you analyse the whole game we had two or three clear chances to score. We hit the post and had one clear chance at the end but it was a difficult game."

On Kun Aguero:

"Kun played very well. He scored two goals, he made the penalty and he had another shot that hit the post. He's a player that is at 100 per cent now and I'm very pleased with his performance."

On the pace of the game:

"Both teams had attacking players, West Ham have very difficult players so you must be very concentrated to try and stop them and with our team the same thing. That makes the game more open.

On Kelechi Iheanacho coming on:

"We always try to play with creative and attacking players. It was important when we were losing 2-1 to put Kelechi on because he plays very well with Kun and that is what allowed us to score the second goal."

On the second West Ham goal:

He summarised: "I'm not very happy with the way we conceded the second goal. Fabian Delph hit the post and then it came in the next play. You need that bit of luck that I feel we didn't have today.

"We knew that Antonio had a very long throw in so maybe we thought there wasn't any danger because the ball was out but it was actually very dangerous."
