Revealed: The latest on the future of David Moyes following West Ham’s dismal run

The Hammers lost again on Saturday


David Moyes’ job is not any under immediate threat despite West Ham’s run of poor results, it has been reported.

The Hammers fell to a dreadful 4-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton on Saturday, which left them hovering narrowly above the relegation zone, though they were helped by a late winner from Arsenal and Chelsea beating Leeds.

Goals from Kaoru Mitoma, Alexis Mac Allister, Joel Veltman and Danny Welbeck ensured that Roberto de Zerbi’s side ran out comfortable winners over a West Ham side in disarray, and piled yet more pressure on David Moyes to turn things around.

With just six wins to their name this campaign, they sit two points and two places above the drop zone, a far cry from their impressive form last campaign.

And given that this season follows a summer in which the club spent record sums on the likes of Lucas Paqueta, Gianluca Scamacca and Nayef Aguerd, it is safe to say that more was expected of Moyes and his side. However, while their European adventure continues in the Conference League, they are in danger of dropping out of the top flight as it stands.

Despite this set of dismal results, however, the Scot is expected to keep his job, with the Guardian reporting that the West Ham board are not planning on sacking the former Manchester United boss.

Their future in the Premier League is still very much in their own hands, with games against three of the four sides below them still to come between now and the end of the campaign.

They now travel to AEK Larnaca to play the Conference League last 16 first leg, before a home tie against Aston Villa next Sunday.
