Allardyce dismisses 'nonsense' criticism

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce dismisses criticism of his playing style by some fans as "nonsense", arguing that football "is a results-based business".

Some supporters displayed anti-Allardyce banners at Saturday's 1-0 away defeat by West Brom, but Allardyce points to the praise he received for a defensive draw against Chelsea this season.

West Ham - who face Tottenham on Saturday - have lost each of their last four Premier League games, but are five points above the relegation zone in 14th.
