Slaven Bilic: Never say never on John Terry joining West Ham

Kristopher Love | 21 April, 2017, 19:18

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has refuted reports that he was involved in an altercation with Diafra Sakho and said that the striker could play when the Hammers take on Everton during the weekend.

West Ham are without long-term injury victim Michail Antonio and fellow midfielder Sam Byram, who was sent off at Sunderland last Saturday.

Geo, Gonzo and Charlie discuss everything ahead of the match including whether Everton are doing what we were led to believe West Ham could do this season, whether to play 3 or 4 at the back, who should start up front and just how many goals Lukaku will score. Fortunately, I had far more good than bad times at Upton Park.

Everton's on-loan striker Enner Valencia is ineligible to face his parent club West Ham. You never say never'.

"If someone is interested, for sure they will call the board and then we will speak about it but we will try to do everything to keep him at Everton next season".

"I certainly think Everton are geared up for success". He is now a better striker for the team than he was previous year. In 161 appearances for the Toffees, he has scored 86 goals, meaning he averages more than one goal per game.

The 23-year-old hitman has been on fire for his side this term, scoring 24 Premier League goals thus far, and is in a very strong position from which to win the Golden Boot award. However, tough recent games against Man Utd, Spurs and Liverpool will have strengthened their resolve, and given that West Ham have won only one of their last five at home the visitors will fancy their chances.

West Ham have endured a tough debut season at the London Stadium and the club are languishing down in 13th place in the Premier League, nine points above the relegation zone.
