Slaven Bilic is reportedly on the brink of being sacked by West Ham United after their Premier League defeat to Liverpool.

After Liverpool left the London Stadium with a 4-1 win on Saturday night, it seems almost inevitable that West Ham and Slaven Bilic will soon be parting company.

The Sun reported on Saturday night that the Croatian would be dismissed by the Hammers hierarchy in the wake of the defeat and that David Moyes would replace him on a contract that would run until the end of the season.

While it remains to be seen whether Bilic is sacked and Moyes does come in, it does seem, from the outside, that it is almost a matter of when and not if Bilic's departure is confirmed. 

It would be a shame for Bilic to go out on such a disappointing note - especially as he has certainly enjoyed some extremely high points during his time at the dugout.

Unfortunately, there have been no bright points to speak of this season, and this latest defeat hints that his exit may be inevitable.

And the photo below from yesterday's defeat perhaps exemplifies how Bilic himself is probably aware that the writing is on the wall for his tenure with the Hammers as he looks to be a beaten man who has run out of ideas of how to fix things.
