West Ham boss under pressure after back to back defeats to Bournemouth and Leicester City


Welcome to the Premiership - and West Ham's new boss Slaven Bilic has already experienced the highs and lows after just three matches.

It was all euphoria after an opening day win at Arsenal - but back to back home defeats have taken the shine off that win.

Bilic by his own admission is already feeling the heat after West Ham  suffered a second straight defeat by losing to Bournemouth on Saturday.

They followed up their 2-1 defeat to Leicester City with a 4-3 setback to the Cherries - both at Upton Park - and Bilic concedes that pressure is mounting on him.

"I am under pressure," he told Sky Sports News. "That comes with the territory and that is why I have to turn it around.

"We were again second-best [against Bournemouth] and I don't like this situation. Playing like this we can't expect to win many games."

There are no easy games and another defeat at in-form Liverpool at the weekend will see the 'Bring back Sam' banners unfurled.
