West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is insisting that the team is doing everything they can to bounce back after a poor start to the season.
With one win and five losses in the opening six league games, the Hammers are finding themselves in the relegation zone with a mere three points. Last season, the team only suffered eight defeats throughout the whole season.
“The start was not the one we were expecting considering the great season we had last year and the move into the new Stadium,” Bilic told the club’s official website.
“Things are not going well for us on the pitch, but we are positive and are working hard in training to put things right.
“We have had four defeats which we are not used to, but we have done lots of analysing, hard training, hard work and the atmosphere is good.
“It is not flat and we are very positive in the training sessions but we have to produce that during games and start winning games and that will bring the situation back to what it was last season.
“No-body can change it apart from us, starting with me. I am the manager and it is my team. It is the team that made us all proud last season. We have to change the situation.
“We cannot wait for it to change and have to act. We need to dig in harder and believe in ourselves.”
West Ham takes on newcomers Middlesbrough at the London Stadium on Saturday.
