West Ham: David Moyes could be sacked if Irons lose next game

West Ham: David Moyes could be sacked if Irons lose next game - Premier League News

West Ham supporters have been handed a significant update regarding David Moyes‘ future by The Times reporter Gary Jacob.

The Lowdown: Moyes under pressure…

The east Londoners’ latest Premier League defeat to Spurs has heaped pressure back on the 59-year-old, who appears to be in a fight to save his position.

West Ham succumbed to a 2-0 loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, with second-half goals from Emerson Royal and Son Heung-min condemning them to defeat and a place in the relegation zone.

In their last five league games, Moyes’ side have picked up one win, two draws and two defeats, with Bournemouth leapfrogging them out of the bottom three after their win over Wolves on Saturday.

The Latest: Moyes handed sack timeline…

According to Jacob of The Times, Moyes and Irons supporters have been informed of when the 59-year-old could be dismissed if one thing happens.

The reporter claims that the West Ham manager is ‘set to be sacked’ if they lose this weekend’s match against Nottingham Forest at the London Stadium.

The Verdict: Right call?

After next weekend, the Hammers will have just 14 league matches of the season to play, making it debatable as to whether any prospective new manager could even make an impact in that time.

West Ham have been linked with the likes of Rafael Benitez, who has much experience of coaching at the very top level, but reports suggest that he would want a three-to-four-year contract. The club arguably cannot commit such a long-term deal for the 62-year-old given how unsure their position in the top flight is right now.

Dimitri Payet proved to be a West Ham bargain - how much did GSB pay for his services?

While Moyes’ side simply haven’t been good enough this term, scoring just 19 goals in the league, the Scotsman already knows these players well and has experience of steering West Ham away from relegation after he came in during the 2019/20 season.

Perhaps the best course of action is to stick with Moyes until an obvious candidate becomes readily available.
