Slaven Bilic has yet to get to the bottom of West Ham's squad night out after the recent 3-0 defeat by Southampton.

Bilic told his players to go on a bonding session on the Monday night after the game but pictures surfaced on social media the following day of striker Andy Carroll and goalkeeper Darren Randolph apparently still out, with users suggesting the pair appeared drunk.

The Hammers manager promised to launch a probe into the incident after the following weekend's clash with Middlesbrough.

But almost a fortnight after that 1-1 draw at the London Stadium, Bilic would only reveal that the internal investigation is ongoing.

He said:

It's still not over. It is an old story and it is not very important now. It is not done yet.

It is not easy, I can't do the investigation because it didn't happen on the pitch. I'm going to react but it isn't done and I don't think about that at the moment, I am thinking about our next game.

I can only repeat what I said before, it was my decision. If they stepped out of the line of the rules of our club, they will be punished.

FULL-TIME: West Ham 0-3 Southampton

Boos ring out at the London Stadium (from the few West Ham fans who have stuck around) after just about as one-sided a Premier League match as you can get. Aside from a brief spell in the second half they rarely troubled Southampton, who took their chances clinically and cut through the home side on the counterattack. Slaven Bilic's men remain mired in the relegation zone after six matches, and the pressure grows.

GOAL! West Ham 0-3 Southampton (Ward-Prowse)

West Ham can't stop conceding goals. The more they have chased this game in the second half the more Southampton have ripped through them, and substitute James Ward-Prowse taps in a deserved third goal for the visitors after Adrian had knocked the ball back into danger.


HALF-TIME: West Ham 0-1 Southampton

West Ham endured a nightmare against Watford on their last outing at the London Stadium and they are faring little better here.

Charlie Austin provided the only moment of quality in an otherwise unremarkable opening 45 minutes with his fifth goal in four matches and, aside from Dimitri Payet's dangerous set-piece deliveries, the home side are struggling to make an impact.

GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Southampton (Austin)

A turgid first half at the London Stadium suddenly bursts into life as Dusan Tadic plays Ryan Bertrand in down the left flank, and Charlie Austin meets the former Chelsea defender's low cross with a clinical finish. More misery for Slaven Bilic.
