West Ham manager Bilic makes promising admission about Carroll

The next global break will take place in the first half of next month, with West Ham's first game afterwards a Premier League away trip to Burnley on 14th October.

"It was not a lovely game, but very few games are handsome", he continued.

"I am thinking about them the most but it is hard to have them both in their natural positions", said Bilic.

"It's easy to do that of course, but then it's very hard to have three at the back.it's nearly impossible".

Poacher Hernandez, a £16million summer signing from Bayer Leverkusen, has been forced into a less-than-ideal wide position at times as West Ham seek stability to stop their run of defeats from the start of the season by playing a three-man defence. "I spoke with him, he's a great lad. he's doing a job of course".

The Irons will welcome back captain Mark Noble, who missed last weekend's draw with West Bromwich Albion with a minor knee injury, whilst keeping all his star power within the matchday squad.

If Bilic is determined to keep a solid back four, then switching to a midfield diamond would provide the chance to have Carroll in the target-man role he relishes while also giving Hernandez the opportunity of a more central threat in and around the box - an area where he thrives.

"He looks good and fit, hopefully, he will last for ages now without an injury, touch wood".

"It's been a good week for us", he said.

"It's a big boost for us and long may it continue".

"When he has just come back, we will try to avoid him playing three games a week, let's say, for 90 minutes". "It is only in one movement and we don't want to risk".

"You never know in a Cup competition, with a little bit of luck in the draw and a few games, you are there".
