After West Ham conceded a late equaliser to Everton in the FA Cup third round, to take it to a replay at Upton Park, manager Sam Allardyce rued his side’s missed opportunities when they were ahead, reports BBC
Everton scored a late equaliser through striker Romelu Lukaku that was fully deserved on the balance of the game, but West Ham had chances to put the game beyond the Toffees when they had their single goal advantage, and Allardyce admitted he’s disappointed they didn’t take their opportunities.
“That man (Lukaku) scores against us. Every time he plays against us he does. The disappointing thing was we didn’t make it two when we had the chance. Enner Valencia’s (header saved by Joel Robles), particularly, we should have scored. That would have made it 2-0 and it would have made it too much for Everton to come back,” he said.
