Was it in any doubt?

In the wake of West Ham’s disastrous 1-4 defeat to Liverpool, Aaron Cresswell has admitted that the player’s have been sub-par. Speculation over Slaven Bilic’s job has swirled over the past 24 hours, with some even reporting that the Croat has already been sacked.

Everton’s win against Watford now leaves the Hammers in the relegation zone having gathered 9 points in 11 games. Most troubling, West Ham have conceded a league-high 23 goals during the campaign.

Cresswell spoke to Match of the Day about this troubling start to the season, saying:

"It's hard to take and it is not good enough. We have a two-week gap now and we have to get on the training ground to put things right.

"Confidence is low. It's not easy being at the bottom of the table. We saw the fans leaving at the end and that's down to the way we are playing. We need to turn this mess around.

"Times are difficult, The goals we conceded were not good enough.

"[Bilic under pressure] They are not our decisions. As players we can be professional and do our best.

"[Are you letting him down?] Definitely, every player included. It is not good enough as a team collectively.

"We need to ease the pressure off the gaffer and ourselves."
