West Ham United FC Manager Slaven Bilic has dismissed all the accusations of Manchester United FC being ‘boring’ under Louis Van Gaal before their Premier League clash on Saturday.
Slaven Bilic has helped West Ham become giant killers in the Premier League, leading them to victory against Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, and has said that he thinks Manchester United are playing effective football under Louis Van Gaal.
a They are winning and not conceding goals,a Bilic said, according to The Guardian. a Somebody said they are boring but I am not sure why people are saying this. They are keeping the ball, they are not a team who give you the ball and defend a you can say that this kind of football is sometimes boring. However, they have possession of the ball, they are controlling the game and they are trying to win every game.”
Bilic went on to say that beating the Red Devils is a difficult prospect because of how they defend and control the ball. a You can say that United are different from before — We can call it controlled football, we can call it patient football but so far it is very effective because they are in a good position in the league. I dona t find them boring a they are hard to beat. I watch them a lot and every game they have more chances and more ball possession than the opponent and in every game the opponent has only one or two chances.a
West Ham on the verge of record
The Hammers, who currently sit 8th on the Premier League table, 7 points from league leaders Manchester City, could latch on to a very rare league record should they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford.
If they do so, they will become the first team in history to have beaten the 5 biggest English clubs — Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United; away from home in one season. We could definitely see history being made at Old Trafford this weekend.
