West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has warned his players they’ll face a Crystal Palace side on Saturday intent of ending their dreadful form.
The Eagles have lost eight of their last 10 games in the Premier League and are now just seven points clear of the relegation zone with eight games to play.
Their form contrasts sharply with how they were doing in the first half of the season when it looked like Palace were pushing for a European place and Bilic knows taking them on this weekend represents a tough challenge.
“Palace are the best example of what the Premier League is all about and why every manager is a little wary when you talk about good form,” Bilic told his pre-match press conference.
“I had a [difficult] run when I was a manager in Russia. It’s hard to stop it. You just have to continue to work hard.
“It’s a very dangerous match for us. They are very solid, have good pace up front, and have quality. It will be a difficult game.”
