David Moyes has said despite his best effort to get his West Ham players back to their early season levels, the individuals need to take responsibility and improve their own game.
The Hammers began their season with just two defeats in 17 matches across all competitions, including knocking out Manchester City and Manchester United of the Carabao Cup and league victories over Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
For much of this season, Moyes' side has sat in the top-four. However, Manchester United's midweek win over Burnley saw the Hammers slip to fifth place. After more dropped points over the weekend for West Ham, combined with wins for all their Champions League rivals, pressure is increasing on the Hammers European chances.
The three teams immediately below Moyes side in the table in Arsenal, Wolves and Spurs all have games in hand on the Hammers, three each for the north London clubs and two for Bruno Lage's team.
However, it was not the result that most disappointed Moyes on Saturday but the level of performance from his side.
