In what looks a tricky season ahead for some teams in the Premier League, who do you think will face the drop?

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has ruled himself out of the running for the West Ham vacancy.

The Premiership outfit are searching for a new manager following Alan Curbishley’s decision to resign on Tuesday after 21 months in charge.

Former Hammers defender Bilic has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League for some time, but he insists he will honour his contract with Croatia.

Bilic said: “I am always being asked about the West Ham job but there is nothing I can say.

“I have a contract with Croatia until the World Cup ends in 2010.”

But Paolo Di Canio, a former favourite at Upton Park, would reportedly welcome the chance to replace Curbishley.

The Italian is quoted by The Sun as saying: “I am waiting for a job in England because my dream is to come back and I think there are a lot of good things I can bring.

“I took the coaching badges in the summer and I would like to have a job.

“My dream team is West Ham. I keep the club in my heart. One day I hope to come back to London and sit on the bench at West Ham.”
