Slaven Bilic has officially been relieved of his duties as manager of West Ham, and the club have already brought in his replacement in the form of David Moyes.

The Hammers' hierarchy have finally acted and given the Croat the chop after the club recorded just two wins from their opening 11 Premier League matches.

Bilic's sacking surprised nobody and it feels like it had been been in the offing for some time. However, an interesting statistic has emerged to suggest that the 49-year-old was also let down by his players.

According to WhoScored, the Irons have committed more errors that led directly to a goal (25) than any other Premier League team since the start of the 2015/16 season - which is when Bilic's tenure began.

Bilic spent a lot of his time at West Ham boss under pressure, and his already difficult job cannot have been helped by players making costly mistakes.

It can be argued that you can set your team up to take a positive results, and execute the game plan well throughout the game but as a manager, there is no accounting for individual errors that lead directly to goals conceded.
