"Over the course of the game we had the ball more and created chances but we didn't quite have the edge again".

Mark Noble said that West Ham United's players should be proud of their efforts despite narrowly failing to cling on to victory after his first-half red card against Leicester City.

The match ended on a sour note with Leicester's Daniel Amartey being carried off on a stretcher, needing oxygen after appearing to get his studs caught in the turf.

"The second half was a lot okay but because they were one man down, it was hard for us because we were under pressure at 1-0 down". He needs to have it examined and then we will see after. In the last five games, Leicester City has won three games and lost two games whereas West Ham United has won two games, lost two games and drawn one game.

"We were very unlucky with the goal they scored because we played around 55 minutes with a player less".

"I am happy with the performance and the way the team played but not with the result." the Chilean told the BBC.

"Until the final whistle you never know what will be the score".

It suggests that there is still a bit of a mentality problem at the London Stadium, but at least Pellegrini can take heart from the fact that they're scoring goals to take leads in the first place.

Pellegrini declined to be drawn on the dismissal of Noble adding: "I haven't seen it". It was really, really hard in the first half although we had more chances.
