According to The Mirror West Ham boss, Slaven Bilic is under severe pressure once again.

The Hammers lost again at the weekend to a Leicester side who were without an away win all season. Many West Ham fans are disappointed with the performances that have been produced recently.

Prior to the Leicester game, co-chairman David Sullivan called for the Hammers to stop conceding early goals. In true West Ham style, the Hammers defence managed to give away two cheap goals in the opening seven minutes. This turned the game into a real uphill battle and although West Ham came close they didn’t gain anything you’ve the game.

The vice chairman said this ‘The next few games now become vital for our season. We go to Hull, then to Arsenal, before we welcome Swansea to the London Stadium’.

Is he also possibly implying that the next three games are very big for manager Slaven Bilic?

West Ham have only managed one win in seven and are now only nine points adrift from the relegation zone. At the start of the season, the owners set Bilic the target of top 10. Game by game this is looking more unrealistic and this may end in the termination of the Croatians contract.
