Many West Ham fans on Twitter have been showing strong support for manager Slaven Bilic in the wake of the 5-1 thrashing at home to Arsenal.
The defeat continued what has been a miserable season for the injury-plagued Hammers so far, and there has been speculation that Bilic could be on his way out.
But he still has the backing of many supporters – with some urging the club’s co-owner David Gold to resist any temptation to wield the axe.

Slav has more heart for our club than all the owners combined. Bilic is our man-He’s one of us. Our owners are not. #coyi

However, some fans are not convinced that Bilic will be able to turn things around.
I love Bilic, he’s passionate and loves the club but starting to question a few things. Hope he turns it round. #COYI

Bilic questioning the intensity of players in training, very honest, but surely his job to get things going? #COYI
