To be fair to West Ham they seemed to have had renewed confidence, I wonder what Zola said to them at half-time. As for us, we played as if we were really missing Arteta and we gave the ball away many times. The opposition looked the hungrier team in the second half, but even then we really should have won the game.
We can't rule out finishing in the top 7, however, it's a bigger mountain to climb now and I fear our time is running out. Hopefully next season we can improve on our consistency and hopefully in the next 6 games, we don't suffer any more long term injuries.
