West Ham boss Slaven Bilic says he is not worried he might lose his job as he has the support of the club's owners.

The Hammers, beaten at Tottenham last Saturday, are currently one place above the Premier League relegation zone having won only three games out of 12.

Bilic's side visit Manchester United on Sunday and again in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, followed by league games against Arsenal and Liverpool.

He said he is "not fearful" and will carry on "in good times and bad times".

Bilic added: "I feel pressure, of course, as at the moment we are not producing and do not have enough points to feel happy and safe.

"I speak to the owners regularly after every game and I feel support. I'm concentrating on my job and our next game."

The former Croatia international is confident West Ham can get a result against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest," he added. "Statistically at home, there is probably no-one better. But it's hard to stay at that standard and maybe that has dropped now.

"I'm confident, if we can cut out the mistakes, and with a bit of luck, we can pick up a result on Sunday."
