Anticipation is growing here in the Football Transfer Tavern for the new Premier League season starting this weekend, our West Ham fans are debating over Bilic’s starting 11 against a strong Manchester United side.
West Ham have made four smart signings this transfer window bringing in goalkeeper Joe Hart and right back Pablo Zabaleta on loan and a free from Manchester City.
Alongside £24m record signing Marko Arnautovic and striker Javier Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen, the Hammers have strengthened in each area with some real Premier League quality.
They’ll be looking to build on their 11th place finish last season and strengthen their obvious weakness of letting leads slip last year.
Our Landlord here believes this strong West Ham line up could provide a shock for a Manchester United side that will be most punters tick on the betting slip come weekend.
Slavan Bilic’s 4-2-3-1 formation would go like for like with the Red Devils, he’ll be looking at his two wide attackers to provide the lone striker with chances and support when moving forward.
