West Ham midfielder Fornals: My big regret for Liverpool defeat

West Ham midfielder Pablo Fornals admits regret failing to score in defeat at Liverpool on Saturday.

Fornals was guilty of wasting a very good chance just before half-time after he raced clear following a fine through ball from Ben Johnson.

And instead of putting his foot through the ball, Fornals tried to lob the ball over Alisson, which he did, but a lack of power in the effort meant Trent Alexander-Arnold could get back and clear the danger.

Reflecting on the chance post-match, the midfielder said: “Well, I was talking with him (Alisson) after the game and I was waiting for him to do something to let me decide what to do and he was waiting for me to decide what I wanted to do.

“And finally I tried to chip the ball over and he got a touch in the last moment and this made the ball go slower to the goal and Alexander-Arnold had time to save the ball.”

While Fornals believes the Reds got ‘lucky’ with their winning goal and has explained why he feels his side deserved at least a point from the game.

He said: “Yeah, you can say lucky and bad luck for us in the last touch, but the truth is that we are going out from here without any points and we probably deserved at least one.”
