Aston Villa moved out of the relegation zone by drawing against a West Ham side who finished with 10 men after Arthur Masuaku's red card
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini disagreed with the decision to send off his left-back. "It was a typical sending off when you play away, with the pressure of the fans in every foul," he told BBC Sport.
Villa captain Jack Grealish said his side "got worse when they went down to 10 men", adding: "We tried to rush things and force things and gave the ball away."
His manager Dean Smith agreed, saying: "I thought 11 v 11 we were really good and created the best chances. I expected a little better of us when they went down to 10.
"We never used that extra man and got rushed on the ball rather than keeping our structure."
