West Ham United were dealt a fourth straight defeat Saturday afternoon, as Hull City produced a vital 2-1 comeback victory to heap more pressure on manager Slaven Bilic.

The Hammers took the lead in the 18th minute, when Aaron Cresswell delivered a wonderful cross into the box that Andy Carroll handled beautifully to finish.

But Hull would produce a response in the second half, as substitute Kamil Grosicki rewarded the onrushing Andrew Robertson’s terrific run with the left back finishing well to even the match in the 53rd minute. The hosts would continue their assault on the Hammers’ goal a few moments later, with Alfred N’Diaye hitting the post and Grosicki just missing wide.

And eventually, Hull would find a winner, as Andrea Ranocchia produced a quality header in the 85th minute to secure a vital three points for Marco Silva’s side, and heap more questions on Bilic.

With Arsenal next for the Hammers in midweek play, it could get even more negative for the Irons club.
