Antonio could give West Ham boost ahead of Arsenal clash

Mar 31, 2017, 01:45

But West Ham manager Slaven Bilic would be wise to also consider a loan move for a 19-year-old who could be every bit as effective as Oxford in the years to come.

Nevertheless, Bilic supposedly still has the board's backing and ahead of the Hull game he said: "It doesn't worry me, I don't read about it, I'm not making phone calls or whatever".

In his debut season, Bilic steered West Ham to a respectable seventh place finish. "Personally, my head is clear and I still have a job to do here. I have another year here". I was not bothered then.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

Bilic now has 15 months remaining on his contract at the London Stadium and has come under increasing pressure during recent weeks after the Hammers have failed to win their last five matches and are now on a run of three consecutive defeats.

Gilgit-Baltistan to be declared a Province
It is not going to be an easy run for the Pakistani government, considering the hurdles in the way. In 2015, India had objected to Pakistan holding polls in Gilgit Baltistan.

"I do not know if it is true - everyone wants recognition", the Dutchman added. "But my head is clear and I am totally motivated and focused".

The Hammers are without a win in their last five Premier League matches and sit 12th in the table as they go into Saturday's match against Hull City.

Bilic is yet to be offered a new contract at the club a year after joint-chairman David Sullivan said he would delay a decision until the Hammers boss proved he is not "a one-season wonder".

His West Ham side are back in action against Hull at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, but a failure to win the game against one of their relegation rivals could spell the end of Bilic's tenure in east London.

Michail Antonio could give West Ham a boost by returning from injury in time to face Arsenal next Wednesday.
