Under pressure Bilic admits to discussion with West Ham owners

Slaven Bilic has won fewer points over the last 21 matches than two men who have recently been sacked, Craig Shakespeare and Ronald Koeman.

Asked if he had spoken to the club's owners, David Gold and David Sullivan, about the five Premier League defeats this term, Bilic said: "They have been very supportive. Backing the team, backing me. I didn't need the chairman to tell me the situation. So as I said, it was no different. It's not like a monologue. We have get points very soon."
