‘Gutted’ David Moyes criticises West Ham ace following missed chance against Burnley

West Ham were hoping to grab all three points against Burnley on Sunday after watching Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal falter in the race for the top four.

Despite winning Manchester United in the race to qualify for the Champions League after narrowly beating Norwich City 3-2, West Ham failed to take full advantage after drawing only 1-1 with relegation-threatened Burnley.

The Hammers’ frustrations would only have added up after striker Michael Antonio missed a stunning match-winning opportunity.

Speaking about his side’s disappointing afternoon game in front of goal, coach David Moyes admitted that the London side needed to shoot Antonio at full capacity.

“Actually, we should have finished the game,” Scottish tactician.

“Even a couple near the end, we had high chances to close it. You might say we had a little bad luck, but we needed to win today and it’s disappointing we didn’t.

“We need Michel Antonio’s goals because if you want a challenge and you want to be at the top, you need to take your chances when you achieve them. Today, we didn’t take our chances. We had a big opportunity and we didn’t take it.

“Today was a great opportunity for us and we let that go. I am so involved and don’t have much to say about it.”
