West Ham United custodian Lukasz Fabianski insists they displayed a below par performance in their 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth.
The Hammers were on the back of a 1-0 victory over Arsenal and had the opportunity of closing the gap with the top six while Bournemouth were huffing and puffing to keep themselves in the hunt.
But the London giants failed to live up to the expectation as they couldn’t make it count against the Cherries. Goals from Callum Wilson and Josh King helped Eddie Howe’s side to register their ninth win of this season.
Fabianski made a number of saves to keep his side in the game but eventually Bournemouth were the better side between the two as they converted the opportunities with utter perfection.
Fabianski said, “It’s a completely different emotion from last week,”
“We’re really disappointed with the result and with the performance, as it could have been a lot better from our point of view.
“I think we didn’t really manage to create that many chances to put them under a bit more pressure and we ended up losing 2-0, which I think was a fair result.
“We knew what to expect from Bournemouth because they are a team who always play with high intensity, especially at home, where they try to put you under a lot of pressure. So we expected them to start quite strongly, but after about 15 minutes we started to get a grip on the game and move the ball better and found spaces.”
