Bilic urges West Ham fans to get behind them for Everton showdown


West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has urged home fans to get behind them when facing Everton this weekend.

Victory should see the Irons safe for another season.

Of the London stadium crowd, Bilic said: “They were very important for us during this season, not to mention last season when we made history and they were brilliant for us.

“We asked for them to support us against Swansea and they gave us a boost in energy for that 90 minutes to keep a clean sheet and produce a solid performance. Now, I’m sure they are going to be the same against Everton.

“Their backing has been very important for me personally because the most important thing about a Club is the fans. We are playing football for the fans and if there weren’t fans, we wouldn’t be speaking about football now.”
