Following West Ham United’s bore draw with West Bromwich Albion, Slaven Bilic spoke to the media about the game’s sole talking point - should Ben Foster have been sent off for his challenge on Javier Hernandez?

The Hammers’ boss told the media:

"For me, in the game, it looked like Foster was the last man,

"It wasn't that brutal. Of course sometimes that would be a red, but I can't see the referee has done too much wrong in that situation."

The result is West Ham’s second consecutive clean sheet starts to mask the very poor start to the season the club made. Four points is a decent start to the season, but sees West Ham still in the relegation places.

Bilic added:

"It was not an amazing game to watch. But it was a solid performance from us.

"We defended well, we limited them to one chance, we were better on the ball in the second half. We got a point, which is good for us, another clean sheet.

"What we are not happy about is our quality in the last third of the pitch because we had many times we were there as they defended deep. We got into dangerous areas but didn't create the chances."
