West Ham United lost their fourth Premier League win in a row on Saturday after a demoralising defeat away to Hull City.
The Hammers now haven’t won a match in the competition since early February and the pressure on Slaven Bilic continues to grow and grow.
It was all looking so good for Bilic’s side as they headed into half-time after Andy Carroll put them ahead with his 50th Premier League goal in the 18th minute.
However, a spirited Hull City side, desperate to escape relegation, mounted a second half comeback and picked up all three points thanks to goals from Andrew Robertson and Andrea Rannochia.
The Irons will still be confident of escaping relegation themselves but, in such dire form, they really need to turn around results or risk being drawn into the mire at the bottom of the table. They are now just six points ahead of Hull, who sit in 18th position.
For West Ham supporters, it was another upsetting afternoon of football and many are growing impatient with Bilic. However, there are also plenty still supporting the Croatian. There appears to be no consensus regarding his future.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the situation…

Not a popular, but if Ranieri can get sacked after winning a title months before, why not Bilic? Unless we are trying to be Arsenal. #WHUFC

If Bilic gets sacked this summer, I wouldn't complain.

Why do people always blame out owners? Bilic CANNOT be trusted with transfers, he is useless. I would be happy for him to go. #WHUFC

Backed the guy through the highs and lows, but I'm sorry to say this…change is needed. #BILICOUT
