West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian admitted to being hugely disappointed by yesterday's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City - despite doing his claims for a first team spot no harm at all.

The popular Spanish stopper was instrumental in keeping West Ham in with a fighting chance of taking soamething from the game until David Silva's 84th minute winning goal.

However he took no satisfaction from his escellent performance as the Hammers left Manchester empty handed, despite a spirited display.

"I don’t feel any happiness because we got nothing from the game," Adrian told whufc.com. "The feeling is that we’ve worked hard, we’ve defended well for all of the game and we had a great chance to make it 2-2 at the end.

"We have to take the positive things from this game, that we did a great job in defence, and build for the next games. We have a long run to the end of the season, we are in a difficult situation but I think we have a great dressing room and a great squad.

"We are working hard for the new manager and we need to fight for more points to take us away from the relegation zone."

A poll on the KUMB Forum has resulted in an overwhelming 96 per cent of readers to cast their votes so far voting in favour of Adrian retaining his first team spot against Chelsea next weekend.

And the goalkeeper says he is doing his best to make David Moyes think twice when considering who to select out of him and the on-loan Joe Hart next weekend. "From a personal point of view I try to give my best every time I play," added Adrian.

"The manager knows that I train hard every day, so I try to give him a headache for the next few games to fight for the number one position. This was my first game in the Premier League this season, and I have to keep working."
