Bilic: “99% sure Payet will start”

payetarmsoutWest Ham manager Slaven Bilic has declared Dimtri Payet fit and says he is 99% sue he will start on Tuesday night against Bournemouth.

Asked whether Payet will start on Tuesday Bilic said :  “He came back, he is fit and I am 99 percent sure he will start.”

He was also asked in his pre match press interview whether it is a good or bad time to play Bournemouth

Slav replied: “They’ve had a good run, but so have we. I mean they are a really good side. They have been together for a long time with the same manager, and now they have added a couple of players they really needed. They are playing good football, and they don’t have a negative pressure. They are enjoying it.”
“They are very well organised, hard to beat, they run a lot and to be fair they did it when they won here 4-3. Make no mistake, we are very well aware what kind of game we are expecting on Tuesday and how we have to play to get anything out of it.”
