West Ham's Sunderland draw leaves Bilic with lots to ponder during break

Sunderland scored two goals in the first half, but the home side couldn't maintain their lead against West Ham, drawing 2-2.
Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat reflects on his side's 2-2 draw with West Ham and comments on his future.

Following the weekend's 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, West Ham go into another international break in a comfortable sixth position in the Premier League.

There is still much work still to be done of course but, to the credit of owners, coaching staff and players, nobody is pretending otherwise.

In case anyone should get complacent, the resignation of Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat immediately after Saturday's game put everything into perspective. The Dutch manager had enjoyed phenomenal...

West Ham must limit errors in visit to Sunderland

Cheikhou Kouyate rescued a point for West Ham with a stoppage time equaliser in a thrilling 2-2 draw against Norwich at Upton Park.

West Ham travel to the Stadium of Light at the weekend to meet a Sunderland side rooted to the bottom of the Premier League.

It's never wise to make predictions too early, but there's a strong feeling already that Dick Advocaat will struggle to repeat the success that he masterminded last season when he managed to keep Sunderland in the top flight when they looked certain for the drop . With no wins at all to show after seven games, form would suggest that a rampant Hammers side should be strong...

West Ham difficulty at Upton Park a conundrum for Slaven Bilic

West Ham required a late Cheikhou Kouyate to salvage a draw against Norwich.

West Ham were involved in yet another entertaining match in their 2-2 draw with Norwich City at Upton Park on Saturday, with a goal in injury time the second time the home side came back to level.

Cheikhou Kouyate's late equaliser may have come deep into stoppage time but it was no more than the home side deserved. It was a match no-one deserved to lose -- Norwich played their part in an enthralling contest with an attacking formation that should set them up comfortably for Premier League respectability...

West Ham prove Premier League mid-range teams are to be feared

It was a unique hat trick. West Ham became the first team to win away at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City in the same season. Yet rather than being congratulated for masterminding them, manager Slaven Bilic was confronted with a question. Was it even a shock to take three points at the Etihad Stadium? "It is a surprise," replied the Croatian, keen to ensure his achievement was not downplayed.

But repetition can dull the sense of wonder. The unexpected seems to have become the expected so far...

Has West Ham's luck run out after Leicester City loss in the League Cup?

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic speaks with Andy Carroll as the striker leaves the pitch.

West Ham United slumped to a hugely disappointing Capital One cup defeat at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night. The Hammers put out a strong side and had good ball possession to show for it, the teams were level at the end of normal time, but ultimately Leicester City fully deserved their 2-1 victory.

With the game deadlocked with just four minutes of extra-time to go, the Hammers recent record in penalty shootouts meant that Slaven Bilic's side would certainly have been more than happy to...

Slaven Bilic must treat League Cup seriously with West Ham

Following last Saturday's superb 2-1 win at Manchester City, West Ham boss Slaven Bilic now needs to concentrate on the midweek third round Capital Cup match against Leicester City.

As if the Croatian boss needed reminding that you're only as good as your last game, then the difficult cup tie at the King Power Stadium should make him aware of the demands of managing a Premier League side.

Bilic's side gained a second round bye in the cup because of their early involvement in the Europa League and...
