To say West Ham’s form has been poor since the start of the season is about as understated as reckoning Donald Trump goes a little over the top with his tweets.
With rumours swirling before kick-off that David Moyes could be about to parachute James Bond-like into the London Stadium managerial hotshot, West Ham manager Slaven Bilić knew he needed a result before tonight’s Premier League showdown with Liverpool.
However, what followed was the same-old-story, as they were ripped apart by The Reds. First half goals from Mohamed Salah and Joel Matip had Liverpool 2-0 ahead at the break.
Manuel Lanzini gave the home side some hope 15 minutes into the second period, but in typical West Ham fashion this season they coughed up a third to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain less than a minute later to end any hope of a comeback. Salah popped up with a quarter of an hour to go to net his second and seal an awful night for Hammers fans with Liverpool claiming a 4-1 victory.
Moyes is now massively odds on to be the next man to take over after the Croatian at 4/11, with former Man City boss Roberto Mancini next in the betting at 4/1. For tonight though, West Ham supporters just want to vent their frustrations at Bilic and they let it all out at the clubs Twitter account the final whistle:

Just sack Bilic will you! Stop letting us fans down with your indecision. Plus if you appoint Moyes you clearly know nothing about football

Remind Me. What position did Bilic play? Yet all the time he’s been in charge we haven’t been able to defend. sadly time for a change

DO NOT GET MOYES

It's okay asking Bilic to leave but there is so much ego and unbalance in that dressing room. Hugely demanding job for anyone. #WHUFC
