West Ham coach Slaven Bilic is seeking to get his team back into a winning streak after suffering a few defeats in the English Premier League and the Uefa Europa League.
The Hammers coach spoke to the media and addressed some latest team news.West Ham are playing West Brom this Saturday and the club manager will be hoping that they use this match to bounce back.
When Slaven Bilic was asked about the 4-2 loss to Watford and how he seeks to correct the mistakes his defence made he said:
“It was not good last weekend. We had individual mistakes and lost confidence as a team.
“The second goal was not about team defending, it was simply a mis-understanding between a couple of players that you see once a season in a team.
“I was not happy with the defending for some of the other goals but we have worked on that and spoke about things behind closed-doors. We had a really good meeting and now we are waiting to see the reaction from the team.”
The Croatian born manager was also asked if he will make any changes for the upcoming clash against West Brom and he said:
“We can make a couple of changes but with every goal you are always going to say it is always the defenders who are to blame for the goals.
“This is a game of mistakes but we have to defend better and defend like we did this season against Bournemouth and the way we defended last season.”
The coach was also questioned whether the newly signed Spanish player Alvaro Arbeloa will be given a chance to play :
“Alvaro has more experience and we brought him here to play. He is not here to be on the coaching staff. We needed one more player there and he is available. He has quality.
“We are happy to have him here. But we also have Sam Byram and he is part of the team. He is a young player who needs the team around him to play well and then he can flourish.
“You cannot put all the blame on his young shoulders. Like any young player he needs help from the team. He cannot be left isolated and one on one situations. We have seen Ighalo do that every week and it was not about Arbeloa playing or not playing.”
