'To end speculation once and for all, the West Ham United Board feel it necessary to announce that we have 100 per cent faith in Slaven Bilic's ability to lead West Ham United, ' the statement read.

In the wake of a 2-1 loss to Hull which leaves the Hammers six points off the drop zone with eight games left, the club's hierarchy moved to back their manager.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has acknowledged that he will ultimately pay the price should his side not turn around their terrible form.

"I'm within my occupation, I will be joyful and we're in a place where we can possess a great finish to the season".

"I know that everyone in Senegal or Africa is waiting to see me play every weekend as it will make them happy".

Pedro Obiang's season is over after ankle surgery and Winston Reid is another long-term absentee. They are next in action on Wednesday when they face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. There's nothing new that I want to say about it, I just concentrate on my job and I am totally focused on our next game. "I was telling you same last season and earlier this season when you were talking about a new contract".

In his three months in charge of the Tigers, Silva has guided them to four wins and a draw in five league games at the KCOM - not to mention FA Cup and EFL Cup victories over Swansea and Manchester United respectively.

Pearl Jam is inducted into Rock Hall
The band has remained a top concert attraction worldwide and had a successful concert at the Mall of Asia Arena last February. She was inducted by Jackson Browne, who said the first album he bought with his own money was Baez's second album.

Robert Snodgrass - who joined West Ham from Hull in January - is still the Tigers' top scoring player this season in the Premier League (7).

Bilic said after Saturday's defeat: "I can expect more (speculation) of course".

Snodgrass had scored 12 goals for Hull before his departure and had arguably been their best player as they embarked on what quickly turned into a Premier League survival battle.

Though risky play from Darren Randolph nearly proved costly at the other end, West Ham continued to press - Manuel Lanzini's low strike bringing a fine stop out of Jakupovic.

The Senegal global is now back in contention for a first-team spot, having missed the majority of the Hammers' campaign, making just two appearances all season.

They could equal the club Premier League record of six consecutive home matches unbeaten, set in 2009 and also achieved between May 2010 and November 2013.
