Bilic Admits It`s a Difficult Start to the Season

Bilic Admits It`s a Difficult Start to the Season

When the fixture computer spat out the fixture list for the 2017 / 2018 season, we knew our first game would be an away one.

The fact that our ground, the London Stadium, would be hosting the World Athletic Championships, forced that particular issue.

But to be given a first game trip to take on Manchester United, at Old Trafford, when you are looking to get off to a flying start to the season, was a hard blow.

However, it`s a game we must face up to, give it our all and hope that we can get some kind of result.

At his pre-match press conference, Slaven Bilic gave his views on the first-match of the new season, remarking to the assembled journalists,

'It's not ideal playing against Man Utd at Old Trafford first game of the season, but on the other hand, it is brilliant and one of the greatest away games in the league.

'They have improved the squad with quality and big transfers, so we will have to be on top of our game.

'We are missing players, it could be better for us but of course we are positive.'
