Bilic: 'Not logical to be under pressure'

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic says that it is not "logical" for his job to be under pressure this early in the season, but understands why.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has suggested that it is unfair for him to be under the microscope this early in the season, but understands that it is "modern football".

Prior to the international break, reports emerged claiming that the Croatian had four games to save his job after the owners were disappointed with the club's start.

The Hammers lost three Premier League matches back to back, but they have finally got off the mark with a 2-0 triumph over Huddersfield Town at the London Stadium on Monday night.

After the final whistle, Bilic told Sky Sports News: "I am happy. I am happy for the lads and for the club. We started with three away games and three defeats and this was a must win game.

"It was not a nice performance but it was a top performance in all other stuff like getting the ball, winning free-kicks and corners. We totally deserve it.

"I feel the pressure for a whole year now. It is maybe not logical for me to be under pressure after three games but it is modern football. We said to the guys we would go back to basics, we had to keep the clean sheet and stop them from having the ball in dangerous areas. We knew with three players up front they would always cause problems."

Next up for West Ham is a trip to The Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion.
