Managers Reaction

Everton boss Rafa Benitez: “I was disappointed to concede, set-piece or open play it doesn’t matter. We spoke about how dangerous this team could be in the air. The way the corner was given, we were more disappointed.”

West Ham boss David Moyes: “I was annoyed as I felt our earlier play had warranted more goals or clearer chances but credit to Everton as they defended their box well and we didn’t perhaps show enough in the final third. I always felt it would be a tough, tight game throughout.” he added. “Nowadays, as a modern trend everyone has got a set-piece coach and we’ve got players who want to head the ball which makes a difference. [Angelo] Ogbonna, Issa Diop, Craig Dawson, and Kurt Zouma all like to get their heads on the ball, and then you need someone who can provide the delivery, and Jarrod [Bowen] certainly did that today.”
