Bilic: “I’m not happy”

Slave Bilic has made his feelings crystal clear on Dimi Payet’s injury.

He said: “I didn’t see it ( the tackle on ou midfielder ) but I was told it should have been red.

Dimitri Payet was hurt against Everton

“I saw it was a foul from behind and they made a few of them. We had our player injured and we don’t know how bad it is, but it was bad enough for him not to finish the game.

“It is a big blow for us. Payet is our main player with the ball and I am not happy with the injury.

“Enner did really well when he came on and we looked dangerous but then he got injured. Those are the only things I am not happy about.”

“Until the scans nobody knows long they will be out for, hopefully they will be okay for Spurs and it’s good we have the international break.”

Bilic said Everton’s goal was “cheap”, but was pleased with his side’s reaction after their 2-0 defeat to Watford the previous weekend.

“It was important to put in a good performance in front of our fans and we looked like a good team,” he said.

“We are not happy because we didn’t win, but they deserved a point too. We tried to get all three but it wasn’t the case.”
