Slaven Bilic hints at a shock move for Chelsea star

That means Bilic has a choice between Ashley Fletcher and Jonathan Calleri for who plays up front, though he has not ruled out a return for Diafra Sakho after denying he had been in a row with the Senegal striker.

Bilic said: "A lot of those game we should have killed off".

"If someone is interested, for sure they will call the board and then we will speak about it but we will try to do everything to keep him at Everton next season".

"We can show we have a strong team and can play away from home in the same way we like to play at home and we will take up the challenge of trying to win all of our remaining games".

Sam Byram and Mark Noble are suspended for the Toffees clash and Andy Carroll out with a groin injury but defender Winston Reid is back from a groin injury.

Well aware of such concerns, Dugan stressed that Facebook is taking a measured approach to these new brain-computer interfaces. But Dugan did stress that Facebook isn't blindly pursuing technological advancement without considering the implications.

Reports this week claimed that Bilic was involved in a bust-up with Sakho prior to the fixture with the Black Cats over the striker's refusal to be a substitute, but the manager claimed those rumours are untrue.

Though Bilic may be a fan of the former England captain, it is hard to see him playing for another English team.

Bilic added: "We are going to see".

Things started to go wrong pretty much from the off, with the Hammers losing a Europa League qualifier (again) to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu (again).

He added: "They have one or two more games to play than us but they have hard fixtures. He has been in full training all week, so he looks good and we are going to see". However, they are without a home win since beating Crystal Palace 3-0 in January. The Toffees are seventh, level on points with Arsenal (albeit having played two more games), and will relish the chance to press their case for European football next season against a West Ham side that has dropped points in eight of its last nine games. To stay in the system where we got four points in the last two games, or to change the system to adjust to the situation. Nowadays you have five of them, plus it's like National Basketball Association, a lot of players have their own physios and nutritionists - that's why so many are maintaining to play at the top level or even improving, and they prolong their careers'.
