Bilic: Hammers need to lose their egos

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has urged his players to let go of their individual ambitions and start working as a team to turn their season around.

The Hammers have not won in their last seven games and are now on a five-match losing streak, following the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday.

Bilic wants his players to pull together for their next clash when they have a chance to end their winless run against Swansea City.  

"We have to leave our egos in our beds and be as one," Bilic told the press, according to Reuters. "I am not saying we weren't before — but now more than ever. We have to put everything we have on the line."

The embattled manager went on to talk about how the move from Upton Park to the London Stadium has affected the team.

"The move always had a lot of positives but it also had negative things, especially short-term. One of those negative things is the time — you need time to adjust. That goes with a new stadium," he added.

"In the long term, it is the best thing that the club has ever done. Make no mistake about it."
