David Moyes back at West Ham
West Ham parted ways with Manuel Pellegrini earlier this week after the Chilean managed to guide the Hammers to just two wins in his final 14 games in the dugout.
David Moyes has since taken the reins at West Ham with this stint the second time the Scotsman has been in the West Ham dugout.
Moyes took over the London outfit back in the 2017/18 season when they were in similarly poor form. The former Manchester United boss managed to steady the ship and guide them to a 13th place finish in the Premier League that term.
And the Irons will no doubt be hoping for a similar outcome this season as well.
