Slaven Bilic "satisfied" with Liverpool draw

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is "satisfied" with his side's goalless draw against Liverpool at Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has said that he is "satisfied" with his side's performance and the result from their FA Cup fourth-round clash with Liverpool.

The Hammers earned a replay by holding out for a goalless draw at Anfield, despite the hosts creating the bulk of the chances throughout the 90 minutes.

It was not all good news for Bilic, however, as he lost two players through injury in the first half, but he feels that his side adapted well to those setbacks.

"My feeling is satisfaction. The game was even in the first half. Liverpool were the better side in the second half until the final 10 or 15 minutes. Our keeper made a couple of saves and so I was satisfied," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"Maybe not people were expecting this Liverpool team to play that well or match us but on the other hand Liverpool when they play at home in their shirt are a big team so I am happy. It is always hard to get a clean sheet. We didn't want a replay but we can live with that schedule. One more game isn't going to be a big problem for us.

"We deserve a replay and for that reason I have to congratulate my players. It will be a great night to play Liverpool at Upton Park. It will be one of the historical games. When you make two subs in the first half your hands are tied in the second half. It limited our options and we had to wait to make a third substitution."

West Ham are now unbeaten in three meetings with Liverpool this season having already completed the league double over Jurgen Klopp's side.
