first_imgPellegrini is a manager renowned for playing attractive football, and has vowed to bring the style back to the east London.Former West Ham boss Allardyce, though, believes the Chilean has a tough job on his hands.“West Ham attacking like they attacked [against Liverpool] is never going to work when you have those players,” said Big Sam, speaking on the Sports Breakfast.“These players are that good, you leave them that space and they are going to expose you and certainly West Ham left too much space between the midfield and the back four. Liverpool kept sliding in between the lines and punished West Ham. 2 “You can’t expect too much off those new players.
