Bilic: Attitude key to victory


Slaven Bilic has challenged his West Ham players to reproduce the performance that saw then defeat Crystal Palace as they look to put a disappointing start to the season behind them.

The Hammers found themselves in the bottom three after recording just two wins from their opening seven Premier League games, but Saturday's 1-0 defeat of Crystal Palace saw them climb to 15th in the table.

Bilic changed things around for the trip to Selhurst Park, adopting a 3-1-4-2 formation, but he believes the attitude of the players played a significant role in their success and he has urged them to channel the performance going forward.

“The system wasn’t the problem in the last few games. For me, it wasn’t about the system, even though I could say now ‘Yes, it was the system!’ but it was more about attitude. It wasn’t that we didn’t want it in the last few games, but it was obvious there was a difference," he told the club's official website.

"Saturday’s win was all about attitude and focus and hunger and resilience and a determination that we were going to do it and we are going to come back.

"Now we are in a position that we can build on this and we cannot let this opportunity slip away through our own faults. It can happen, as this is football and the opponent can have a brilliant day and you can be unlucky, but we’re going to come at every game like we did on Saturday."
