The Hammers welcome Bolton to the London Stadium on Tuesday evening for his or her Carabao Cup third-round conflict, having scored simply 4 league targets regardless of including former Manchester United ahead Hernandez to their ranks.
Hernandez has been running at the proper of a three-man assault since Carroll’s go back, with quite a few West Ham enthusiasts calling for the pair to be deployed as a twosome.
Bilic, on the other hand, does no longer really feel that may be a viable possibility given the opposite gamers he has at his disposal.
“It is almost impossible,” he stated. “It may be very onerous to place them of their preferrred positions as two strikers, which appears to be like just right on paper. But you need to have a large number of them [best players] at the pitch on the identical time.
“Of direction I’m enthusiastic about that. Chicharito is taking part in ready which isn’t his place. I spoke with him, he’s a super lad… he’s doing a task after all.”
Bilic has different issues too, with Manuel Lanzini set to be out for some other month.
Lanzini has no longer been ready to shake off a knee damage picked up in pre-season and, even supposing he performed towards Newcastle closing month, he broke down.
Now West Ham are taking no probabilities and Lanzini might be sidelined till the Burnley sport on October 14, even supposing Bilic has faint hope he’ll be to be had once more towards Swansea on September 30.
“He is still a little bit away from starting training,” stated Bilic. “He’s doing everything but he is not training with us as in one movement he still feels it. It is only in one movement and we don’t want to risk.”
