Soccer – Bilic aware of hostile environment

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic accepts that defeat against Liverpool on Saturday will increase the pressure on him. The Croatian was criticised after last month's 3-0 home loss to Brighton but since then his side have hit back from two goals down to beat Tottenham 3-2 in the Carabao Cup before drawing 2-2 at Crystal Palace in the Premier League last Saturday. "I know the situation," Bilic said. "We need something from our next game and that game is on Saturday against Liverpool. "Every bad result, or the points you are not taking, puts me or the team in a worse position." West Ham are 17/4 with bet365 to beat Liverpool and 7/5 to score first and win the game.
