West Ham United drew 0-0 with Stoke City this afternoon.
The Hammers played out a 0-0 draw against Stoke City today, with Bilic's men unable to take advantage of their 21 shots in front of goal.
The circumstances are difficult for Bilic, considering that he has a host of players out injured right now, in a remarkable run of bad fortune.
Defender Winston Reid, playmakers Manuel Lanzini and Dimtiri Payet, winger Victor Moses and striker Diafra Sakho were all ruled out for today's game, meaning Bilic had to shuffle his squad.
After the game, Bilic spoke to the club's official Twitter account, and actually gave Hammers fans some good news regarding the injuries to Payet and Lanzini.

"Hopefully there is a chance that Manuel Lanzini might be back for Swansea and even Payet doesn't look like a long, long time," said Bilic. "So I hope that Lanzini will be back next week and maybe even Payet in three weeks time, but it's going to be longer for Diafra Sakho, Victor Moses and Winston Reid" he added.
Given that many felt Payet would be out until around March, the suggestion that the Frenchman could be back inside three weeks is a shocking revelation from Bilic - and should be a major boost for West Ham fans this evening following their draw against Stoke.
