West Ham: Fans react to rumours of Rafa Benitez replacing Manuel Pellegrini

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has found himself under increasing pressure in recent weeks after a poor run of results.

Poor defending has been at the heart of their struggles, conceding three against Burnley and Newcastle as well as four in the Carabao Cup defeat to Oxford United.
