West Ham United’s Croatian coach Slaven Bilić has a chance to have his name etched in history this weekend…

Bilić, who took over the manger’s job at the East London club last summer, has been one of the big success stories in this season’s English Premier League. Bilić, who has had the better of the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea so far this year, was the first Hammers manager to do the double over Liverpool in over 50 years. The season could get bigger for the former Croatia national team coach if he wins this coming Saturday.

West Ham United travel to Newcastle in round 22 on Saturday, and if they win or draw then Bilić will become the first manager in the club’s Premier League history to go 9 rounds without a loss.

Bilić’s last loss was on 22 November at Tottenham (4:1), and since then he has guided his team to 3 wins and 5 draws.

Good luck, Slaven.
