Slav names the new big players

Michail-AntSlaven Bilic has admitted that Michail Antonio has become a big West Ham player as the injury crisis bitten into the club’s squad.

The manager says that whilst the final verdict has not yet been delivered by specialists that Diafra Sakho could be out for between four to eight weeks.

He said: ““It is nothing dangerous for long term but it is not a light one and we will be without him. It is a big blow, in terms of quantity of injuries we are not bad but in terms of quality we are.

“We don’t necessarily need to sign a striker in January, I am not saying we won’t try and get someone but right now we will wait and see.

“Now Andy Carroll is a big player, and Nikica Jelavic and Michail Antonio. It looks like Valencia is going to be ok soon, maybe in a few weeks time so that is a big boost.”

  1. Correct we have no problem let the players we have been paying for months for nothing get out there turn on the talent we presume they have because we have invested £31 million in the 3 of them,
    Lee and Brown are waiting also to show they have what is needed to be premier players just as Vardy did,

  2. He’s trying to be candid in his selection so Man U have to guess who will start.
    Will be Carroll up top or Antonio up there. I’m sure he won’t start Jelavic.
    We need Zarate and Lanzini there creating.

    Obiang,Noble,Kouyate keeping hold of the ball and competing

  3. Noble ?
    Song for me !,, no contest !!!!!!

  4. Good call I agree we have been waiting for song to start he seems to be
    under the radar right now whyyyyy hardly a mention.
