West Brom boss Sam Allardyce, speaking to BBC Sport: "If anything disappointed me in the first half we didn't pass the ball like we did against Wolves. We didn't put West Ham under enough pressure but in the second half we did."
"We are improving as a squad since we have been here. What we must stop doing is being the biggest conceder of goals in the Premier League and until we decide to stop that one it is going to be very difficult.
"The point would have been precious today because Manchester City next is probably the most in form team. We can play at our very very best and still get beat by a team like Manchester City. We will plan for it and give it our best shot."
On not being able to play Robert Snodgrass and trying to bring in more signings: "At the end of the day he is a great signing. It is what he is going to give us between now and the end of the season.
"There's lots of trying. Like many other clubs we are trying to sign better quality players, lifting the quality of this team is essential."
West Ham boss David Moyes speaking to BT Sport: "We needed a win tonight it wasn't our best performance but that keeps a small run going and we're showing some growth - growing in how we play and what we do I would've liked to play better but not disappointed with three points that's for sure.
"I'd like to dream a lot but we're very humble and understand we're West Ham and not going to start shouting things too soon because history has shown we haven't always backed it up and I want to be the one to back it up. We're going step by step and making good progress picking up points. I want us to be competing at the top end and to do that we have to keep winning and sometimes you have to win a bit ugly and tonight we did that."
On potential transfers: "It would be important if the right ones were there but only if the ones are available that we want. We don't want to bring people in who won't help the team and if we don't we'll find solutions within the squad."
