The West Ham hierarchy are to meet to discuss Slaven Bilic’s future, according to the Mail on Sunday.

Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Newcastle means the Hammers are bottom of the Premier League having lost all of their opening three games this season.

The Mail on Sunday say the club’s owners want to take stock of the situation and that the manner of the defeat at St James’ Park raised concerns about how the players are responding to manager Bilic.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, Bilic said he was “worried but not panicking.”

He added: “After the game at Southampton, we had lost and we had zero points, but I was still very positive about the way we played and reacted after we had 10 men.

“But this is different and it is worrying. Every club has their ups and downs and only us can take ourselves out of this situation. It’s still very early.

“It’s my job to be confident and to believe in the good and bad times.”

Bilic is hoping to add to his squad ahead of Thursday’s deadline.

“We’ve done well in the transfer window and we’re looking for one more player,” he said. “Sometimes one player can change a lot.

“This was a very difficult afternoon. They were better in every aspect of the game and simply had more power and determination.”
