This is a big season for West Ham and Slaven Bilic.

While their first season together was better than any of us could have hoped for, providing us with magical moments throughout the campaign, last season really left a bitter taste in many of our mouths.

West Ham want to be in the mix for the Europa League places and undoubtedly if they plan on doing so, they need better performances from near enough everyone in the squad.

There’s a lot of competition for places at the moment and pre-season will give players a chance to prove their worth to Bilic and his staff.

We’ve taken a look at the West Ham players who have the most to prove during pre-season.
