Arsenal Have Problems, Watched Their Weekend Game Twice - Slaven Bilic

Posted April 05, 2017

I talk to the chairmen before or after every game. It's nice to hear it, but I know I have the confidence of the Board. "I am focused on the next game". Wenger said the France centre-back still needs to undergo a scan, but that he could face a lengthy layoff.

Aaron Cresswell, Mark Noble and Diafra Sakha are all slight injury doubts going into the Arsenal clash.

West Ham's vote of confidence hasn't provided an terrible lot of comfort, given how many clubs have gone back on them previously, but Jurcevic sounds hopeful about the future.

"Antonio has trained the last couple of days". Thus includes a 10 minute hattrick at Upton Park in last season's 3-3 draw. "It was only because it was not like a hamstring injury, he was out for a long time, he had the operation on his back and he is looking really good", Bilici said ahead of the derby. "But he is a great player at a good age also - a great age". "At the end of the day we didn't get them, so it's disappointing". "We are not a flat team".

"A couple of wins will get you safe, or three wins, but if you don't win the next two or three games you are in a dogfight", the 33-year-old Portuguese global added.

Rays' Longoria hits 1st home run of new major league season
The switch hitter had three singles while batting lefthanded Sunday in the Yankees' 7-3 loss to the Rays on Opening Day. It was a surprising development as Tanaka had never lost to the Rays in his career and was coming in hot.

Wilshere has started 19 Premier League matches this term.

"I watched Arsenal's game with Man City on Sunday twice and they were very motivated and up for it physically and tactically", he said in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday. I saw an Arsenal team with a lot of energy.

The Ox had been performing well in a central role so I wouldn't be surprised to see him given the nod alongside Granit Xhaka with Rambo among the subs.

Slaven Bilic is under intense pressure at the London Stadium and must now rally his troops as they prepare to visit Arsenal, a club in the throes of their own so-called crisis.

The defeat has left the Hammers just six points above the relegation zone and only turned up the pressure on the Croatian's position. "First we have to be solid and organised and concentrated".
