West Ham boss Sam Allardyce hopes his side do not live to regret their poor performance and defeat at Wigan on Saturday.

The Hammers have had a great start to life back in the Barclays Premier League, picking up 14 points from their first eight games, but were beaten 2-1 at the DW Stadium. And West Ham's run of fixtures until Boxing Day looks very challenging, with Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton and Arsenal all coming up.

Allardyce said: "When you look at the fixtures we've got coming now, this was a chance for us to get a result. The group of games now, you know anything other than your very best is going to be a problem to get a result, and even your very best might not get you one."
