Slavan Bilic expected more from his West Ham side

Wednesday, 16 Aug, 2017

He will not wear that number for West Ham - "I didn't feel it was right to take the No1 shirt; I'm now on loan at West Ham, and I've enjoyed a lot of good times in the No25 shirt" - and if star billing is unimportant, then there are others in the squad who can take that mantle.

Hart told Sky Sports: "The permanent move was going to be hard". I am anxious I can give 100 per cent.

"My return to the Premier League is going to be at my old house".

"It's the ideal welcome for me being a Hammer".

"We are very low at the moment".

And will he celebrate if he scores against his former club? "We can not lose confidence", he said.

"It is tough to get into a Premier League team, I found that out myself this summer".

18-year-old Irish underage worldwide Declan Rice was introduced as a second-half substitute and racked up half an hour at Old Trafford after replacing Mark Noble.

For Stoke, Hughes must do without Stephen Ireland (broken leg) and Ibrahim Afellay (knee) for the trip to Goodison Park. Everton and Stoke clash at Goodison Park on Saturday in the pair's opening match of the 2017/18 Premier League season.

"They're my coaches, they're the people whose opinions I care about".

"I will be happy if I score". I couldn't be any more grateful for the opportunity they've given me. "It was against Man United and we conceded four goals". "There's no point me taking it too personally because it's not all about me". "I'm very proud and very lucky that I can say that". He took the temporary move that offered "the highest standard possible" and the challenge in east London was one he welcomed.

"I'm here to win games, to try to improve and to try to help".

A new chapter has now opened in Hernandez's career and he's ready to play a key role for the Hammers, targeting European qualification.

Following the game, Neville has now indicated that the fitness of the Argentinian epitomized the nature of the defeat for the Hammers, saying, "Zabaleta epitomised it for West Ham at the end".

"It was a very bad result for us". The pair have spoken during the summer and Hart was assured West Ham would be an appropriate destination. I don't know if I'm going to be that player that they missed or not but I want to be important.

"I feel I can adapt to what my manager wants", he says.
