Slav warns Liverpool: We haven’t gone on our holidays”

Slaven-Bilic (1)Slaven Bilic insists the Irons are ready to turn it on against Liverpool on Sunday just as they did against Spurs last Friday.

He told the official site: “We are preparing and we are planning to do something similar to last week when we play Liverpool,” he said.

“There are a lot of similarities in those two sides – we still have two games and we are very ambitious for six points from those two games.

“We can climb up in the table – it is not the situation that we are safe now and are already on our holidays. Definitely I am expecting the same kind of determination, commitment and teamwork like it was against Spurs.

“We want to win every game and now we are without the negative type of pressure that we had against Spurs. That burden is off, so I’m expecting at least what we did against Spurs, in terms of playing and commitment.

“Talking about our home performances, we definitely improved a lot across our last six, seven or eight games. Since the start of 2017, I remember the home games improving a lot, and there were only a couple of games against Manchester City in the cup and league that were not good.

“We lost some games, like against Leicester, but we were really good. I’m not talking about the results, only, but about the performances too and they have improved a lot.”

  1. So what does the team look like for Sunday?

    Adrian; Reid Collins Fonte; Byram Nordveit Fernandes Masuaku; Ayew Lanzini Snodgrass; Callieri

    Apparently the PL have given special permission for us to have 10 substitutes- only 5 can play, with the other five pushing them around the pitch in wheel chairs.

  2. Love to see that team 64 but dont think Klopp will let us play with 12 men.

  3. Must need new glasses- I counted them up twice! Snodgrass on the bench then..
