L'OM have had a disappointing start to the season and the pressure is on coach Jean Fernandez to turn their fortunes around.
Frederic Dehu, Beye and Meite (pictured) are under pressure - with new recruits Andre Luiz and Bostjan Cesar champing at the bit to start.
Ivory Coast defender Meite admits his form has been disappointing, but feels he is not alone.
"I can question myself," he said. "If I am the main problem, I have to be put out of the team, and we will see what will happen. But I am not sure I am the main problem."
Beye concedes his form has not been out of the top drawer this term.
"I am aware my start to the season has been average," said Beye. "I had extenuating circumstances, with a short preparation after an injury, and short holidays.
"But it is no excuse and I know I can improve."
Dehu conceded earlier in the week that he was not playing well, but Fernandez is not prepared to cast him down the river.
"We need him," said Fernandez. "With his experience, he is still important in the defensive line, considering the communication trouble we have in that area."
