Slaven Bilic says he has not been told his job is on the line ahead of West Ham's crucial home clash against Huddersfield on Monday Night Football.
The Hammers have made a poor start to the new Premier League season and currently sit bottom of the table having lost their opening three matches.
Sky sources understands the Croatian's position as manager was placed under review following the 3-0 defeat against newly-promoted Newcastle in August, with the West Ham ownership believed to have been worried by the team's performance at St James' Park.
But when asked whether his job was on the line if West Ham suffered defeat, Bilic said: "I haven't been told that. I said to the chairman, we have no points from three matches and we have to start winning.
"I have told you so many times I don't think about my job in that way. I think about my job as a good job and where I have to put all my energy and concentration into working with the lads and talking to the lads.
"I try and keep the lads humble when we are winning, being in the zone when we are not in the zone for whatever reasons. Monday night is a game that I am totally concentrated on."
Bilic also played down suggestions he held crunch talks with co-owner David Sullivan in the wake of that defeat to Newcastle, claiming they were routine discussions.

"I speak to the chairman after every game and also now we had a talk about the game," he added.
"He knows that we didn't start well and the game against Newcastle was not just because we lost the game, it was a bad performance.
"It was unacceptable and it was a low point. I said that I had to raise the performance and get us back on the right back track."
