Just after Michail Antonio gave West Ham a very first Premier League win at London Stadium, Slaven Bilic declared he’s wanting to sign “one more”.
Slaven Bilic was delighted to see West Ham earn their 1st Premier League victory at London Stadium and expects the club’s chairmen to be “generous” as he appears to add another signing in this transfer window.
Inside a game lacking in high-quality, Michail Antonio stepped up to seal West Ham’s initially league win in their new property, his late header adequate to determine off 10-man Bournemouth.
Despite the likes of Andy Carroll, Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and club-record signing Andre Ayew all missing Sunday’s clash, Bilic – who has been linked with making a move for Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony – was impressed with his side’s show and hopes to do additional enterprise just before the window shuts.
“A few of your injuries – Lanzini, Payet – they should be back quickly,” Bilic, who didn’t confirm or deny any interest in Bony, told Sky Sports.
“So if you are talking about creativity then we’re okay, due to the fact nobody has 5 players like that. By way of example there is certainly only one David Silva at Manchester City.
“With Andre Ayew, it’s a long term injury. Hopefully he’ll be back in December, so we’re going to try to get a single if doable. I believe the chairmen are going to become quite generous, if we are able to find a proper a single, but a proper a single is very difficult to discover.
“There’s not a team in Europe linked with extra players than West Ham. But I’ll talk with all the directors on Monday morning about finding one particular, and if we do it will be an excellent a single, but if not we will survive anyway.
“The lads were brilliant right now. It wasn’t an awesome game of football, we didn’t expect currently to become able to play like Brazil, for the reason that with the greatest respect we have been missing four players who play like that.
“It’s a massive win. I was gutted following Chelsea, using the late aim. But you do not wish to be on zero points just after the first game, and certainly not just after the second and after that you must visit Manchester City, and after that there’s the international break.
“So add on top rated of that it is our initial game [at London Stadium], if we didn’t win men and women would commence asking queries. ‘Is this the proper residence?’ So hopefully we’ve stopped it.”
