Hart blasts unprofessional West Ham after Palace draw

Joe Hart has criticised the naivety of his West Ham teammates after they drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace.

The England goalkeeper pulled off a string of fine saves at Selhurst Park, but was unable to prevent Wilfried Zaha’s 97th-minute equaliser that earned the Eagles an unlikely point after West Ham led 2-0 at half time.

“I can’t believe we’ve done that,” Hart told the official club website. “I can’t believe we’ve fought all the way to the end and then been so unprofessional at the end.

“It’s a little bit speechless in the dressing room. No one does things on purpose in this team, but it’s two points dropped – as simple as that.

“I hadn’t switched off, but it was a good finish by Zaha, through legs, and I’m bitterly disappointed.”

Hart was also critical of West Ham’s inability to kill the game off in the final stages, adding: “You’ve got to keep the ball in the corner, it’s that simple, and you can’t let people keep running through you and getting chances.

“Today counts for a point, but that’s about it.”
