West Ham lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace on Saturday, and the club’s co-owner David Gold took to Twitter today in reaction to the result.

The Hammers led early in the second-half after a well-worked move was finished off by Sebastien Haller.

The Eagles responded, however, and eventually ran out as 2-1 winners.

West Ham played some decent stuff in the game, but were made to pay for their profligacy in front of goal.

The east London outfit now sit in eighth spot in the table. It’s not all bad, however. They are just four points adrift of second place.

The Hammers fans expected more from their team on Saturday, and they left the London Stadium disappointed, having seen their side miss out on the chance to go third.


West Ham will now have to bounce back in two weeks time when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton.

And they must put their defeat to Palace out of their minds asap.
