West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is adamant that his side "deserved" to beat Bournemouth in Sunday's Premier League meeting at the London Stadium.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has claimed that his side "deserved" to beat Bournemouth in Sunday's Premier League meeting at the London Stadium.

Both sides toiled throughout most of the game but after Cherries midfielder Harry Arter was sent off with 13 minutes to go, the Hammers struck late on through Michail Antonio to seal a 1-0 win.

Bilic told BBC Sport after the game: "It was difficult, we knew it would be. We were missing our most quality players - not one, not two, but four out of six, if we're talking about the last third of the pitch.

"The guys did brilliantly. Bournemouth were better than us in the first 15 minutes of the second half but they didn't hurt us.

"We just deserved it. We were pushing and wanted it more. We're delighted to end the first game at this beautiful stadium with a win and a clean sheet."

West Ham's next game is against Astra Giurgiu in the Europa League on Thursday night.
