Slaven Bilic has said he will "take full responsibility" for West Ham's current predicament after watching his side embarrassed 3-0 by Brighton at the London Stadium.
The Hammers were booed off the pitch by those who bothered to stay until full-time after they were outfought and outplayed by Chris Hughton's side.
The result means West Ham drop down to 17th position in the league table and they could be in the relegation zone after Saturday's fixtures.
"The goals affected us," he said. "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.
"I expect it [heavy criticism and speculation about his future]. 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."
