We can improve everything, says West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic

West Ham Upton Park

The Croatian is determined for his players to continue their progression.

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic has highlighted the areas he believes his side can still improve on this season.

The Hammers’ start to the campaign has surpassed the expectations of even the most ambitious of supporters - with their current occupation of third position placing them just two points off leaders Manchester City – but Bilic is in no mood to rest on his laurels.

West Ham’s inspiring new leader has quickly transformed the club and has no intentions of letting things slide.

“Everything, everything. The players have only known each other for a couple of months, we can improve on winning second balls, set pieces,” he told whufc.com.

“We definitely have to improve our shooting because we are not shooting enough from the situations where we should be. Our transition from defence to attack and the other way round can be better too. Basically, we can improve everything.”

“This doesn’t mean I’m not happy with our performances, I am happy. But we know we can improve.”

The Croatian’s words should allay any fears West Ham fans might have of their team taking their foot off the gas and instead instil confidence for the weeks ahead.

Bilic’s men have navigated a tricky opening ten games and now face an easier run of fixtures – on paper at least – in the lead up to Christmas.

The Hammers will be confident of maintaining their position at the right end of the table and Bilic’s commitment to maintaining standards will be key to ensuring they do so.
