Manager Slaven Bilic was naturally in positive mood when he spoke to the press following Tuesday’s 3-0 Carabao Cup third-round win over Bolton Wanderers at London Stadium.

The Croatian reflected on a third clean sheet in the space of eight days, the performances of Marko Arnautovic and teenagers Declan Rice, Sead Haksabanovic, Domingos Quina and Nathan Holland.

Bilic also revealed Tuesday’s performance has given him a selection headache ahead of Saturday’s Premier League derby with Tottenham Hotspur.

Slaven Bilic says Andy Carroll’s threat will only grow with the amount of time he spends on the pitch.

Jose Fonte says West Ham United need to build on the solid base a three-man defence gives them and find ways to break down resilient opponents in future.

The Hammers looked secure at the back for the second successive game in Saturday’s goalless draw at West Bromwich Albion, where they made it two clean sheets in a row following the 2-0 home win over Huddersfield Town.

West Ham United fans will consider their side unfortunate to come away from The Hawthorns with just a point after a hard-fought goalless draw with West Brom.

In truth, the away side were the better team, creating seven chances compared to the Baggies’ five and registering nine shots, significantly more than the five attempted by West Brom.

Bilic: We were one moment of quality away from winning

Slaven Bilic felt his side were one moment of quality away from securing a deserved Premier League victory at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

West Ham United were a dominant force at The Hawthorns, where they enjoyed two-thirds of possession, created more goal attempts than their hosts, hit the crossbar through Pedro Obiang’s long-range curler and restricted the Baggies to one header on target.

Pedro Obiang believes he and his West Ham United teammates can be satisfied with a hard-fought point after playing out a draw against West Brom.

The Irons collected their first point away from home in the league this season at The Hawthorns on Saturday, following a 0-0 draw between Slaven Bilic’s men and the Baggies.

The away side enjoyed the better chances in the fixture but couldn’t break down Tony Pulis’s side, leading to the two teams sharing the spoils of this weekend’s match.
