West Ham ace Sebastien Haller spoke to the club’s official website in the aftermath of his side’s defeat to Everton yesterday, and suggested that their performance was ‘unacceptable’.

The Hammers made a decent start to their 2019/20 campaign. Just one point from their last three matches has put a dampener on things, however.

West Ham now sit in 10th spot in the table.

Haller himself has been one of the Hammers’ standout performers this season. He has four goals in eight Premier League games to his name thus far.

 

The Frenchman’s all-round game has been really impressive. And he will have a key role to play for the east London outfit this season.

Haller spoke to WHUFC.com after yesterday’s defeat to Everton, and suggested that he and his teammates need to discuss with each other the ‘unacceptable’ manner in which they played at Goodison Park:

“It’s a shame to play like that and today Everton were better in every part of the pitch. It’s something we have to speak about after the weekend. Hopefully that kind of performance will remind us that we need more to be more than 100 percent every game, be more aggressive and make different runs. A lot of small things made this game very bad for us, so we need to think about it [and do better] because that was unacceptable.”

Next up for West Ham is a home game against Sheffield United next Saturday, before they play host to Newcastle United the following week, and a return of six points from those two games will be absolutely vital to their hopes of gatecrashing the top six this season.
