West Ham United manager Slaven Bilić refused to dwell on his side's disallowed goal following their thrilling draw with Arsenal. But he insists the Hammers could be sat third in the Premier League if recent decisions had gone their way.

Manuel Lanzini looked to have given his side the lead after 15 minutes when he headed home from six yards out but his effort was ruled offside, despite replays suggesting he had been kept on by Hector Bellerin.

Minutes later, Arsenal took the lead through Mesut Özil, but again, there were suspicions of offside that were this time ignored by referee Craig Pawson. West Ham found themselves two goals down minutes before half time until Andy Carroll struck twice, sealing his hat-trick six minutes into the second half.

Laurent Koscielny struck an equaliser with 20 minutes of the contest remaining as both sides settled for a point, but Hammers boss Bilić was not in the mood to focus on the game's controversial moments.

"I don't know, we can talk for ages, but the summary is I am very proud of our performance," Bilić told his post-match press conference. "The only thing I am not happy with was the result. I decided really not to talk about the disallowed goals I am not objective, but I'm trying to be. If affects my daily life."

Bilić did suggest his side have been on the wrong end of some big decisions in recent weeks, adding the club could have been closer to sealing Champions League qualification had things gone their way.

"I have been asked about it five weeks in a row so I am not going to take about. We should be third in the table, not fourth."

A win for West Ham would have seen them leapfrog Manchester United into fifth place. The Hammers host Louis van Gaal's side in their FA Cup quarter-final replay on Wednesday 13 April.
