West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini believes that one of his biggest tests will keep his swollen squad happy.

The Hammers brought 10 players this summer, including Felipe Anderson for a club record of £ 40 million.

Pellegrini, who brings his team to Liverpool tomorrow, now believes he will have to make difficult decisions and it will be difficult not to bother the players.

"Maybe it's one of the hardest things because everyone wants to play," Pellegrini said yesterday.

& # 39; If there is a better player, then there are more problems.

"It's more difficult when you do not have players, when you're 11, when you do not have any problems, when you choose exactly the same XI every week.

"But that's impossible because of the amount of games, because of the injuries." As a manager, it is easier to have more good players, and some must wait. "

Pellegrini acknowledged that there is pressure on him and his team to act from the start after spending more than £ 100 million.

The Chilean insisted that co-president David Sullivan has not scored as a goal for qualifying for Europe, but wants to play attractive and attacking football.

"No, we do not talk about that (Europe)," said Pellegrini. Only the general direction of the club. We will try to play in the best way and get as close as possible to the top of the table.

"Normally, when you bring so many players you need a period of adjustment, but football does not allow you to have that period.

"We need to be a competitive team on Sunday and then next week." As a manager, the hard part is when you have no options, which is difficult.

"The players know that I have to choose an initial XI, but they also know that if during the whole season you do not have a strong team, it can be very difficult to be successful.

"Then we have two players in each position, they must be working competitively and after that it is my duty to choose the initial XI for each game that I think is the best."
