West Ham chiefs have made Burnley boss Sean Dyche their top target should they decide to sack Slaven Bilic

WEST HAM chiefs are lining up Burnley boss Sean Dyche to replace under-fire manager Slaven Bilic, according to reports.

Bilic’s team won their first game in four after staging an unlikely win against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup, scoring two quick-fire goals that sparked West Ham’s revival in a 3-2 win.

The Daily Mail claims that the West Ham board will evaluate the Hammers performance against Crystal Palace before deciding on the Croatian’s future.

Chiefs David Sullivan and David Gold were concerned with the disastrous showing put on by the East-end side during their 3-0 home defeat against newly-promoted Brighton.

The board want to see evidence that Bilic can lead West Ham out of their current crisis before fully backing him.

However, should Bilic fail to convince, it has been reported that Dyche, who has also been linked with Everton, has been discussed as a potential successor.

The Hammers have won just two of their nine Premier League games this season.

He said: “I don’t know. All that I can say is that I am the manager of the team and I take full responsibility.

“I am very experienced I have been there before, we talk about bouncing back last season, that is all I can say – what is going to happen?
