Slaven Bilic: My message to the West Ham United fans ahead of Sunday's game


West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic says three points on Sunday are a must to bring an end to a set of disappointing results in the English Premier League.

The Hammers host Southampton this weekend after back-to-back defeats against West Bromwich Albion, Watford and Manchester City.

The Croatian has urged the fans to support the team as they are needed for his players to get out of such a critical situation.

"It [winning on Sunday] would mean a lot because we need it," Bilic explained.

"I said after the West Brom game that we had three massive games until the international break starting in the cup and then two big league games.

"It is a good opportunity for us because we are playing at home and we can get out of the situation we are in.

"It would mean a lot to us to get the three points and it would boost the confidence and bring back the belief.

"Although it is very early on in the season it is still very important because we need the points.

"I want the fans to be behind us on Sunday and we need their support more than ever. They will play a big part in this game.

"We need them every time but we need them now to help us get out of this situation.

"Since I have been here they have always been fantastic with their support and getting behind the team and I have no doubts they will be very positive once again."
