West Ham manager is fighting to save his job at the East London outfit, with their final two home games against Tottenham and Liverpool vital in his quest to do so, according to The Guardian.

The Croat has overseen a tricky campaign at the London Stadium this term, with the club sat 15th in the Premier League and seven points clear of the bottom three with just three matches of the season remaining.

It has been a far cry away from the West Ham that finished seventh in last term’s top-flight, yet with a move to a new stadium, the sale of Dimitri Payet in January, as well as injuries to key first teamers throughout the season, it was never going to be easy for the 48-year-old to replicate last season’s success this time round.

Nevertheless, it does appear that his job is under threat, with The Guardian reporting that Bilic will need two good performances from his side against Tottenham on Friday night and Liverpool the following weekend to secure his future as Hammers boss.

West Ham have laboured to just six Premier League victories at the London Stadium this season, and the manner of certain displays, notably the 3-0 loss to Southampton and 5-1 defeat to Arsenal, haven’t gone down well with the Hammers faithful and indeed the board, with co-owner David Sullivan apologising to supporters after their 3-2 home loss to champions Leicester a few weeks ago.

Bilic has a further year on his contract at the East London outfit, yet the conclusion to this campaign appears to hold the key to whether or not he sees out that deal next term, with Sky Sports this morning reporting that his position will be reviewed at the conclusion of the current campaign.
