Bilic wants immediate reaction


West Ham manager Slaven Bilic expects an immediate reaction to last weekend's 4-2 defeat to Watford.

The Hammers looked to be on course to record their second win of the season when they went 2-0 up on the Hornets but they surrendered their advantage and eventually fell to a shock defeat in front of their home fans.

"I don't think my players under-estimate any team we have played so far. We were expecting a tough game against Watford and we were right," Bilic told reporters.

"It was not a good performance last week. More individual mistakes and misunderstandings from a couple of players.

"We have talked about it behind closed-doors. We had a really good meeting and now we are waiting for the reaction of the team.

"Mistakes will happen but we have to defend better and defend like we did last season."

Watford's Troy Deeney has suggested that West Ham's showboating inpsired their comeback at the London Stadium.

Deeney claimed that Dimitri Payet's rabona cross to set up West Ham's second goal was an attempt to 'mug us off' but Bilic moved to play down the comments.

"(Deeney)'s a great player and a very clever player and it was smart to say that," Bilic said.

"I didn't see it that way to be fair. It might look like that for some people but I think he said that because they turned the game around. It's a good story, like they woke up from 2-0 to make it 4-2.

"I've been here more than a year and I haven't seen my players underestimate any team that we have played so far, especially Watford because before the game we knew we were expecting a tough game. It's just a clever statement from Troy."
