Pellegrini fumes as West Ham hold Liverpool to 1-1 draw

West Ham manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was unhappy with Liverpool’s offside goal, after their 1-1 draw on Monday night.

Sadio Mane put Liverpool ahead in the 22nd minute with a goal that should have been disallowed for offside, before Michail Antonio equalised for West Ham six minutes later.

Pellegrini, speaking to Sky Sports after the match, insisted it was a “big mistake from the linesman”.

“We had a lot of chances to win this game. We drew because they scored a clearly offside goal.

“The last play of the game, Origi missed that goal. He was offside. It was a big mistake from the linesman.

“Playing against a team who have scored so many goals with the best defence in the league, I’m happy with the performance but disappointed with the result.

“We need to grow and be more consistent in our play, it doesn’t matter against who we play,” he said.
