Goodbye

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

Will Slaven Bilic be in a job by the end of the weekend?

Make no mistake, the West Ham boss is on thin ice after an awful performance by his side.

In contrast, Brighton turned in a masterclass and are quickly adapting to life in the Premier League.

Thanks for your company. We're back in the morning for build-up to a huge day of action.

Catch you then.

Long wait over for Seagulls

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

Brighton & Hove Albion

  • Brighton and Hove Albion won their first away match in the top-flight since March 1983, ending a winless run of 11 matches. They also recorded their joint-biggest away top-flight win, equalling their 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace in April 1981.

Wembley next for Hammers

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

West Ham's next three games?

They travel to Wembley next Wednesday to face Tottenham in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup before another London derby at Crystal Palace on 28 October.

The Hammers then entertain Liverpool on 4 November.

'I'm not worried, but I'm realistic'

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

West Ham United

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic speaking to Match of the Day: "The goals affected us. Especially the first one very early. The second was a bit of a killer. We took some risks but to give credit to them they defended really well with numbers.

"I am disappointed. I never point out the players in front of the cameras. They gave their best but it wasn't good enough tonight.

"I have to say sorry to the fans. It's not the first time. They deserve better than this.

What about the "hurricane" he spoke of before the game? "I expect it. It's not a good moment when you lose at home 3-0. Especially against a team you are looking at as a chance to get the points.

"I'm not worried. But I'm realistic on the other hand.

"The speculation was here before. I'm manager of the team, I don't want to hide behind anything. It's my responsibility and it's up to the board of course."

'We need to look in the mirror'

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

West Ham United

West Ham defender Jose Fonte speaking to Sky Sports: "We need to look at ourselves in the mirror. This happened a few times last season. We have to put this right. We are West Ham and it's just not possible.

"It's disappointing. It's a night to look at and learn from.

"I won't say it's unacceptable. The players tried hard. We tried the best we could, but sometimes it doesn't go your way.

On fans booing: "How can we not understand? They don't like to lose 3-0 at home. We don't either. We're all frustrated, we apologise and we work hard on the training pitch.

"It's not only the manager, it's the players as well. We have an unbelievable squad and should not be in this position."

'Enough is enough'

#bbcfootball

Josh Verrills: Bilic needs to stop delaying the inevitable.Truly shocking performance.

Michael Rose: Brighton were by far the superior team. I think Slaven Bilic is on very thin ice now.

Peter Hemple: Been a Bilic fan for years but enough is enough, time to go. Signing Hart was a mistake, he is a broken keeper and a has-been.

'I take full responsibility' - Bilic

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

West Ham United

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic, speaking to Sky Sports: "It's very hard for me to say anything clever now. I take full responsibility for it. I don't want to hide.

"It is not a good situation and the board will do what they are going to do. It's their decision."

'West Ham fans have had enough'

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

Jermaine Jenas

Former England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

It felt like West Ham fans have had enough. In the second half I couldn't believe how quiet the fans were. I'm commentating on the game and they aren't getting me excited so i don't blame them at all. There is a problem here.

'We were outstanding'

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton boss Chris Hughton, speaking to Sky Sports: "I thought we were outstanding. A huge part of the game is how you defend and I thought we defended the crosses and made a lot of blocks.

"We certainly made the most of it. I'm as pleased with the clean sheet as I am with the goals. We used the ball well and nullified the qualities West Ham have got.

'Bilic ran out of ideas'

Jermaine Jenas

Former England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

There's a problem here and I think they need to address it, not just at manager level but throughout in terms of who is bringing in the players.

The fans could see what was coming and the players didn't have the belief to say 'we have a way of getting through this very good defensive line of Brighton's'.

I felt like Slaven Bilic ran out of ideas a little bit. He looked dejected on the sideline. It felt like a tough moment.

'This win will give us an extra boost'

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton's Spanish defender Bruno tells Sky Sports: "We've got a great defensive unit.

"After conceding in the last five minutes against Everton I think this win will give us an extra boost. We have a good group of boys and we'll try to keep working in the same way."

Goalscorer Glenn Murray adds: "I'm delighted to get my chance and I think I've taken it."

'Time for change'

#bbcfootball

Daniel Foy: West ham shocker. Clueless Bilic, team not a team. Keeper does not defend his area enough. Time for change.

Yomi: Wouldn't surprise me if Bilic is sacked next.

Dermot: I like him but...Think Bilic’s days are numbered.

West Ham need to be put out of their misery. We're deep in added time but the game goes on.

'I don't see how Bilic can go on'

Jermaine Jenas

Former England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

It's a really tough moment for these fans. They've had a tough couple of years. Performances have not been great for two years and this feels like the nail in the coffin.

I like Slaven Bilic, he feels like a good, honest man. He'll front this up but I don't see how much longer he can go on.

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

The Hammers are down from 15th to 17th in the table because of goal difference. They could very well end the weekend in the relegation zone. Few who have witnessed this will be surprised if that happens.

Five minutes of normal time remaining. There's thousands and thousands of empty seats.

West Ham's fans have seen enough.

'Feels like nail in the coffin for Bilic'

Jermaine Jenas

I usually don't understand why fans leave early but I understand it tonight. They're in their rights to leave when they have. The team haven't shown desire or fight to get back into the game. It feels like the nail in the coffin to me.

West Ham 0-3 Brighton

All the headlines will be about how poor West Ham have been and Slaven Bilic's future.

But let's not forget how well Brighton have played. It's been a superbly executed game plan by Chris Hughton's side.

They've been excellent all over the pitch and have embarrassed the Hammers.

Is this Slaven Bilic's last game in charge of West Ham?

Strong words by Jermaine Jenas.

Bilic's decision to replace Marko Arnautovic with Edimilson Fernandes was greeted with a chorus of boos.

The fans are raging.

I hate to say it but it feels like one of those moments when you wake up in the morning and Slaven Bilic will not be in a job.

It feels as serious as that. His team have not turned up. Brighton have come here and embarrassed West Ham.

West Ham 0-2 Brighton

Around 20 minutes remaining. Some West Ham fans are making an early exit. This is going to be a long weekend for Slaven Bilic unless his players can come up with something special and produce a late response. There's no evidence of that happening.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 0-2 Brighton

Goalscorer Jose Izquierdo gets a rousing reception from Brighton fans as he is replaced by Solly March, whose career includes youth spells at Eastbourne Borough and Lewes.

West Ham 0-2 Brighton

Lewis Dunk has just smashed the ball 70 yards down the pitch. That's no nonsense defending. This will be Brighton's third top-flight clean sheet if they hold out.

CLOSE!

Not bad by Manuel Lanzini.

West Ham need a response and the Argentine's free-kick from 30-yards takes a deflection off a yellow shirt before flying narrowing wide of the post for a corner.

This has been a highly impressive defensive performance by Brighton.

Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have been outstanding. Very little threat from Marko Arnautovic while Javier Hernandez has faded.

Brighton are in real control of this. They know West Ham have to throw everything at them.

Roars from Brighton fans each time their team touch the ball, Party atmosphere in the away end. Ugly atmosphere in the home ends.

Brighton hit the post through Shane Duffy's towering header from Pascal Gross' free-kick but it wouldn't have counted because of an offside flag.

What's happened to West Ham? They're all over the place.

'Bleak for the Hammers'

West Ham 0-2 Brighton

George Cummins

BBC Radio 5 live

Yesterday Slaven Bilic said a "hurricane is just around the corner" at West Ham. He could be right if his team go onto lose this.

I have just been down to the concourses and the songs the home fans are singing about their own team aren't very complimentary. They can't be repeated on here.

Some of the fans haven't returned to their seats for the second half. It's looking very bleak for West Ham at the moment.

West Ham have been pretty useless at set-pieces. Another corner leads to nothing. More groans from 50,000-plus Hammers fans.

'Hammers need to get crowd going'

West Ham have to do something to get this crowd going. I have had to take off my headset to see if it is as quiet as it sounds.

Shane Duffy has been outstanding in Brighton's defence. West Ham start the second half on the front foot but there is no end product. The atmosphere inside London Stadium is flat as a pancake apart from where the visiting fans are sat.

Jon Ruffell: 45 mins to save your career Bilic. But what I've seen this season doesn't inspire me that WHU will be playing in PL next season.

Ohigho Musa: I don't see Bilic and Koeman remaining in their position(s) at the end of January. I hope I am proved wrong.
