Slaven Bilic was highly critical of West Ham's performance against Man United, citing their own mistakes as their downfall.
Herculez Gomez believes Hirving Lozano's move from Pachuca to PSV will elevate the winger to the next level.

Hirving "Chucky" Lozano couldn't have asked for a better league debut. He scored PSV's first goal of the new Eredivisie season, and he could have tallied more had the crossbar not denied one of his shots.
