West Ham boss Bilic: I don't know if I can do this

West Ham have lost three of their past four games at London Stadium and were unable to cope with Liverpool's pace on the counter-attack throughout Saturday's game.

They were thrashed 4-1 at the London Stadium today as Liverpool continued their recent resurgence.

"I'm definitely not a broken man", said Bilic, whose side will enter the drop zone if Everton beat Watford on Sunday.

"The result feels good", said Klopp, who had started forward Sadio Mane despite the Senegalese having only returned to full training on Thursday after a month out with a hamstring injury. Of course we're going to discuss this defeat because it's not the first one. They have been supportive, very good to me in my two and half seasons, but the situation is very hard.

The Croat will at least be able to call upon left-back Aaron Cresswell, with the 27-year-old recovering from a dead leg picked up in last weekend's draw at Selhurst Park, whilst centre-back Winston Reid is also available for selection following a spell on the sidelines.

Deservedly named Man of the Match by BT Sport, the Egyptian was only inches away from a hat-trick, but as it was his goals bookended a professional display by the Reds.

The company also announced that it generated $5.7 billion in revenue in the company's fiscal fourth quarter ended October 1. Unilever plc (ADR ) notes that the acquisition price for the Tazo Tea brand represents 10 times its pro forma EBIT.

But the defender admitted the players are letting the boss down.

"It is not good enough as a team collectively".

Just prior to Salah's opening goal Liverpool had lined up as 4-2-3-1 in possession and 3-4-3 without the ball; alternating to a 2-4-4 once Joel Matip had grabbed the second.

West Ham started brightly and wasted a chance to take the lead early when Andre Ayew struck the post after Manuel Lanzini's pass deflected into his path.

Slaven Bilic's charges were erratic after half-an-hour and looked more prone to making mistakes at the back despite starting really well before they conceded the two goals in three minutes. (Can you even remember the last time we scored from a corner kick?!) Salah's delivery found Sadio Mane, who flicked it on toward goal.

"At this level if you are 2-0 down so early it's not game over but it's very hard to come back".
