Hammers Boss Slaven Bilic Admits He Is 'Disappointed' & 'Frustrated' Following Leicester Defeat

Fortunately they faced a West Ham side playing as though they just want their "historic" first season at their new stadium to end as quickly as possible. We knew we were coming on the back of an terrible away record and we wanted to try and put that right.

But Jamie Vardy restored the two-goal cushion before the break and despite another strike from Andre Ayew with plenty of pressure from West Ham in the final half an hour, they were unable to take a point from the encounter.

Leicester reverted to the counter-attacking setup that served them so well last season when they came back out for the second half.

It seems the message did not get through, though, as they found themselves 2-0 down after just seven minutes.

The hosts fell behind early on when Riyad Mahrez's cross drifted past goalkeeper Darren Randolph and the Irishman was picking the ball out of his net again minutes later as Robert Huth nodded in a clever chip from Marc Albrighton. Algerian global Riyad Mahrez opened scoring Leicester in the 5th minute of the game with Huth and Vardy increasing the tally in the 7th and 38th minutes respectively.

But record signing Ayew squandered a glorious chance to level while Kasper Schmeichel twice kept Carroll at bay, the second with a save reminiscent of father Peter from point-blank range in stoppage time. "To pull off those crucial saves was vitally important today".

"I think he's in the best form since I've been here".

Qualcomm's 205 Mobile Platform (sigh) brings 4G and VoLTE to cheap mobiles
Now, these chips will find their way inside future feature and flip phones and in regions where there is no LTE support. The telecommunications equipment company announced the update, titled the Qualcomm 205, in New Delhi, India, on Monday.

With the worldwide break coming up, both teams have a couple of weeks to recuperate.

Slaven Bilic was left highly frustrated after his West Ham side were beaten 3-2 by Leicester.

While Bilic was disappointed with the manner in which the goals were conceded, he did see good things during the improved second-half performance.

And Bilic reckons Antonio will have to be withdrawn from the England squad as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

"We knew that they had a momentum and of course they are a good side who were underachieving this season".

"We have to find out why we are conceding so many goals and fix it because it is obviously harder to win games when you concede two or three goals in a game than if you keep a clean sheet". I am intensely proud of the results we have got.
