After five defeats in succession West Ham are only five points above Saturday’s opponents, who are third from bottom, and Bilic, the manager, wants his team to return to winning ways before they get sucked into a battle for safety.
“I’ve had those games [before],” Bilic told whufc.com. “They are not do-or-die situations but we do not want to come into a do-or-die situation.
"We want to do it as soon as possible. So now it is massively important."
