Adrian: We should have taken more off Everton

West Ham goalkeeper Adrian was happy with a clean sheet in their draw with Everton, but says they could have taken all three points.

The Hammers were held to a 0-0 draw at the London Stadium on Saturday, and the Spaniard didn’t have to deal with a single shot on target on his return to the team.

"We could have got more from the game," Adrian said after the match. "We played very well in defence and had chances from set pieces.

"The game was a bit open in the second half, but at the end of the day it’s a point and a clean sheet for us. Everton are on a good run and are fighting for Europe, so we had to give our best to stop them.

"It was a tactical game and we want to win every game, but at the end of the day we got a draw and a point.

"After a very long time not playing, I had been working hard to help my teammates, and today was good for me and for my teammates because we kept a clean sheet. Now, we have to keep going like this until the end of the season."

The result leaves the Hammers 13th in the standings, but with little separating them from the relegation strugglers, and Adrian is aware of the dangers in the final four league matches.

"It’s very close," he added. "The table is not very different between tenth position and 14th or 15th, but we have to think just game by game. We have another away game next week, so we have to keep going and fighting until the end."
