Ahead of this weekend’s league clash against Liverpool, West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic has said that he expects a tough encounter, but is eager to exploit the Reds’ weaknesses.

The Hammers started their 2015/16 Premier League campaign in spectacular fashion as they defeated Arsenal 2-0 in their opening league fixture.

However, they have been dealt successive defeats since – they lost 2-1 against Leicester City and were then handed a 4-3 defeat at the hands of newly-promoted Bournemouth.

On the other hand, Liverpool are unbeaten in their first three games of the season and are yet to concede a goal.

The Hammers will be up against the Merseyside giants at Anfield this Saturday and Bilic has acknowledged that the Liverpool squad is full of quality players; however, he is eager to exploit their weaknesses.


“They have quality in every department and are dangerous up front”, he was told a press conference.

“They also have their weaknesses which we want to exploit.

"I'm expecting a tough game, of course. Liverpool have started well.

"They haven't conceded any goals and they've had good results.”
