West Ham director Manuel Pellegrini has contested Felipe Anderson to improve further, regardless of the Brazilian scoring two to see off Southampton.

Anderson, 25, grabbed both goals since the Hammers came from behind to beat the Saints 21 on Thursday.

That takes his premierleague tally upto eight since his or her pound;36m move from Lazio in July, but Pellegrini believed Anderson could offer more to his match.

“He loses too many chunks – he will keep on advancing,” said Pellegrini.

“He needs to understand the premierleague is difficult if you keep the ball at your feet. He’s a player that is different, a player that in most match makes major plays.

“His conduct of goals is crucial for the team. It isn’t easy for a midfield player to score so many goals through this stage of the summer season. They could alter the score of the match at all.”

“In case you give it away as if we did then you don’t need to triumph. We’re maybe not too fresh and maybe not speedy, [or] sharp to acquire the next balls.

“Their goals were too easy, one from beyond the package and one from a large part we’d.”
