The visitors took the lead eight minutes into the game through Mohamed Elyounoussi, and goalkeeper Fraser Forster immediately resorted to time-wasting, with Hammers fans getting frustrated by it, according to Sky Sports’ Ben Grounds.
The broadcaster posted on their live commentary of the game on their website: “We’ve barely played 15 minutes as referee Kevin Friend has already warned Fraser Forster about his time wasting at the goal-kick. Groans from the home fans.”
There are still 45 minutes to play, and given that a lot can still happen, opting to waste time in the first-half makes no sense.
West Ham will be looking to bounce back, and they did show some signs few minutes after going behind.
While Declan Rice picked up a yellow card that rules him out of the next clash with Watford, the England international midfielder will be hoping to make up for it with an impressive second-half display.
They need to pick up all three points to keep their top-four hopes alive, and failure to do so could be a massive blow.
