This Saturday Southampton and West Ham go head-to-head at the St Marys` Stadium with both clubs looking for their first Premier League win of the season.

Ahead of the clash, both managers held their pre-match press conferences.

Slaven Bilic, addressing the media, had this to say about the poor performance at Old Trafford that saw the Hammers trounced 4-0,

‘I had a feeling in my stomach, we should have done better. Especially the last few minutes. We didn`t give up individually but we crumbled.

‘We looked good this week in training. We want to approach the game against Southampton in a positive mood.’

Before changing the subject slightly and going on to address the transfer market as it stands, commenting,

‘I know that the power is too much on the side of the players and their agents.

‘The power is massive. We have to live with it and we have to try to find the best possible solution for the club.’

The times have certainly changed.

As for the Southampton manager, Mauricio Pellegrino, he had this to say about his side,

‘I think we are working really well. We have to try to keep going and keep improving.

‘We have to use our experience from Swansea and use everything we did in this game to keep learning and to use this experience for the next few games”

Come on West Ham, there are three points for the taking in this one.
