West Ham boss Bilic: I don't know if I can do this

The Hammers' 4-1 home defeat by Liverpool once again left Bilic's future at the club in serious jeopardy. "Sadio is a naturally fit player.he is a little machine. I never did it before", Klopp said.

West Ham were torn to shreds by a rejuvenated Liverpool, inspired by the surprise return of Sadio Mane whose pace, energy and desire had been missed in recent weeks.

Remarkably, Burnley are also level-pegging on 19 points with Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool as Sam Vokes pounced late on for Sean Dyche's side against Southampton.

The beginning of the second-half saw West Ham take to the field looking much improved, pulling one back through Manuel Lanzini.

Salah stole the ball and flicked it to Mane who burned across the ground before feeding Salah to fire past Joe Hart.

Could West Ham conjure up a stunning comeback as they did against rivals Tottenham in the League Cup? The Hammers are languishing in 17th spot, just one point outside the bottom three after winning just two of their opening 11 games this season.

Uluru climbing ban from 2019
The date the climb will close, October 26, 2019, will be 34 years to the day since Uluru was given back to the traditional owners. At least 37 people have died attempting to climb the rock since records of fatalities began in the 1950s.

Firmino, though, was cruelly denied his fifth assist of the campaign, with Hart's initial intervention meaning there was no official credit given to him for Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal. A deep cross from the right found Lanzini, who brilliantly shrugged off Joe Gomez, brought the ball down on his chest and lifted the ball into the net off the far post, a genuinely excellent finish boasting both strength and skill.

Former Liverpool centre-back Matteo thinks given the Reds' weakness, Slaven Bilic simply must start with Carroll, who he argues offers something different in attack.

The bubbles were still streaming across the London Stadium when Liverpool immediately restored their two-goal lead.

"I have to talk to the chairman because, of course, we have to discuss this defeat", Bilic told BT Sport.

Asked if he still has the club's backing, Bilic said: "It's hard for me to talk about that now".

The 54-year-old Moyes is regarded by the club as the best immediate option to shore up West Ham despite taking Sunderland into the Championship last season, one that ended with him resigning from the club.
