West Ham boss Slaven Bilic would not swap turbulent season

Andy Carroll is a really good player,’ says a wary Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on return to West Ham

Apparently they were watching other players, but they fell in love with Andy. But Bilic has suggested Andy Carroll should be fit to feature in a boost for West Ham.

"For this reason we are preparing for this type of situation". Against Watford they took a while to get going, although they really should have won the game after a dominant second-half performance and an equaliser from Andre Ayew.

Crowd trouble overshadowed the last meeting between the two teams back in October.

"I can only say that Conte is a great coach, but I chose to stay in Rome".

West Ham (9-6-11) have had a bit of an inconsistent season, but they've done well to kick on after the sale of star Dimitri Payet during the January transfer window.

Everything you need to know ahead of Monday's Premier League match at the London Stadium as the Blues travel to face the Hammers. To have this relationship with the club, with my players, is good.

West Ham have banned 38 of their fans in direct response to the unrest during and after the EFL Cup match.




Metropolitan Police insist there is an "appropriate, proportionate and robust" plan in place to prevent a repeat of the clashes, while West Ham have drawn up a "five-point plan" that involves giving stewards hand-held cameras to identify troublemakers and improved segregation of home and away supporters inside the stadium. It's unfortunate for Michail Antonio that he will miss the game through suspension as he is probably vying for the Player of the Season accolade now; the team will miss his speed and direct running.

But the Italian admitted missing the big nights under the lights against the continent's elite.

Billic thinks that it is these testing moments which have strengthened him as a manager: "Of course I wasn't enjoying the defeats but sometimes you have to sacrifice something to get something". It must be our house.

The Blues are edging closer and closer to the Premier League title, after a solid first season under the management of Antonio Conte.

"It's a great competition for the players, the club and the manager and we want to try and stay there, to try and fight to win". Every game I play I feel more comfortable and have more belief in myself. This was our target.

West Ham are unbeaten in three games and in fact have lost only one of their last six in the league, as seemingly a corner has been turned.

So, with these two key attackers set to go head-to-head on Monday, here is how Lanzini and Pedro match up in the Premier League this season... "It's very hard for them to make an impact when they can't force their way into an inconsistent side".
