Everton boss David Moyes was disappointed to lose to West Ham and also see star striker Andy Johnson limp off injured.
The Toffees went down to a first half strike from Bobby Zamora which came just minutes after Johnson was forced off.
Moyes was not happy to lose the game or his striker.
"We are disappointed with the result, we maybe should have got something and obviously Andy's injury did not help being in the first few minutes - so it disrupted us a lot," he told Sky Sports.
"It looks as if he went over on his ankle so we don't know whether it is severe or not, but it didn't allow him to carry on so we had to make the change."
Moyes thought Johnson going off did have some effect on Everton.
"It did in the first 20 to 30 minutes, but I have got to say West Ham played well in that period and put us under pressure - after that we got to grips with the game and I thought in the second half we certainly deserved to get back in the game," he said.
"I thought we played well, I thought we tried to - we didn't change things to try and make things, we kept pushing forward and the only thing we didn't get was that clinical finish.
"Goals change games and there one special goal changed the game, it was a very good goal by them - maybe we could have closed it down better but that is what happens in football."
