West Ham’s form has been abysmal for some time; they’re without a win since September and have fallen to 17th in the Premier League table.
The Hammers last won against Manchester United, but have since lost six of their last eight games.
Manuel Pellegrini has come under pressure as a result of the poor results, with many fans questioning whether he’s the right man for the job.
He hasn’t been helped by the loss of first-choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski; the Polish international will be out until Christmas time (per their official site) with a hip injury he suffered against Bournemouth.
His loss has been felt, they’ve conceded three goals in each of their last three games, leading to calls for stand-in Roberto to be replaced by David Martin.
The fixture list isn’t kind for the Hammers, either; they face Chelsea, Wolves and Arsenal in their next three outings, a run that could drop them even closer to the bottom three.
Here’s how some fans reacted to seeing Pellegrini in a club Twitter post:
Announcing his resignation?
