Slaven Bilic has been sacked by West Ham United after leading his side to only two wins in 11 Premier League matches.

The Hammers' only victories of the campaign has come at home to newly promoted Huddersfield Town and struggling Swansea City, the latter courtesy of a 90th-minute winner.

Bilic's time appeared to be running short when Brighton and Hove Albion stormed to a 3-0 win at the London Stadium on October 20, before his players threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at bottom club Crystal Palace.

And the former defender's fate was sealed by a sound 4-1 beating at the hands of Liverpool on Saturday, ending a reign that started in June 2015 and yielded seventh and eighth-place finishes in the top flight.

 

Former Everton and Sunderland manager David Moyes is widely reported to be in line to replace Bilic, who leaves with West Ham 18th in the Premier League.

West Ham visits Watford on November 19 after the international break, with that game seemingly set to be the first test for Moyes — who parted company with Sunderland following its relegation from the Premier League last season — should he get the job.

Moyes replaced Sam Allardyce at the Stadium of Light in July last year, but the former Everton and Manchester United boss claimed just six league wins in his time on Wearside as his team finished bottom of the table.
