West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic gives insight into his conversations with David Gold

West Ham United are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table.

Slaven Bilic has told West Ham United’s official site that David Gold has given him the message that he must try and win every game from now until the end of the season.

Everybody associated with West Ham was gutted after the London side crashed out of the FA Cup to Manchester United in midweek.

However, Gold is keen not to allow Bilic to get too down about that result and he has challenged the Croatian boss to ensure that they have a 100 per cent record for the rest of the campaign.

“I talked to the chairman yesterday, on the phone, like we talk after every game and he also said that we have to try and win all six games,” Bilic said.

West Ham have failed to win any of their last five matches in all competitions, but the pressure is on them to finish strongly.

The Hammers have worked hard to put themselves in contention to claim a European spot, and they have legitimate reason to look up the table as well as down it.

West Ham are under pressure to hold off Southampton’s challenge for a top six spot, but they will also want to catch Manchester City, who are in fourth.

At the moment Manuel Pellegrini’s side are five points ahead of the Hammers, but if Bilic’s side can deliver maximum points from the final six matches they may be able to break into the top four.
