Everton manager Marco Silva blamed his side’s errors as they slipped to a first defeat of the season against West Ham on Sunday. The Hammers ended their dismal run with a 3-1 win at Everton to move out of the bottom three with only their third victory over the Toffees in 21 meetings.
West Ham’s £17.5million summer signing Andriy Yarmolenko marked his full Premier League debut with two goals from the Ukraine international to put the Hammers 2-0 up just past the half hour.
Gylfi Sigurdsson’s header pulled one back a minute before the interval but Marko Arnautovic’s second-half strike confirmed Everton’s first defeat of the season and Silva blamed his side’s costly errors.
“We didn’t perform in our level to win this match. I already told our players,” he told reporters.
“In this level you cannot make mistakes like we made. When you create chances you have to score.
“After the first mistake we made we didn’t react like we had to react and it looks like the game changed completely and we lost our confidence.”
At 2-0 down Silva substituted Morgan Schneiderlin, whose father died in the week, a minute before half-time but the Toffees boss insisted his decision was a tactical one.
“I know what has happened but he was ready to play,” he added. src=”https://www.completesportsnigeria.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/images-97-400×266.jpeg” alt=”” width=”400″ height=”266″ class=”alignnone size-medium wp-image-109272″ />
