West Ham United manager David Moyes said “horrendous mistakes” during a calamitous five-minute spell cost his side a 3-2 defeat at Newcastle United which dented its Premier League top-four hopes on Saturday.
Moyes’s team could have gone third with a win but it was stopped in its tracks in the 36th minute when Issa Diop scored an own goal and Craig Dawson was sent off.
Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski then dropped a routine catch from a corner to allow Joelinton a tap-in.
Ten-man West Ham battled back after the break with Diop’s header and Jesse Lingard’s penalty but Joe Willock won a thrilling game for the hosts with a header.
“I don’t think we deserved to be 2-0 down, but we did because of our mistakes,” Moyes told reporters.
“We made a couple of horrendous mistakes today, which has not been like us really, but anyway we showed great character after halftime.
