West Ham United journalist Roshane Thomas has shared an update regarding David Moyes’ position at the east London club ahead of their upcoming Premier League match against Nottingham Forest.
After falling to a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in their previous match, the Hammers now find themselves in the relegation zone.
Their next outing sees them take on Steve Cooper’s side, who are now five points and five places above the Hammers in the table, at the London Stadium.
Having reportedly been under pressure earlier in the campaign, some behind-the-scenes news has emerged concerning Moyes and his immediate future.
In a recent Twitter post, Thomas had this to say on the situation heading into the weekend’s clash against Forest.
He said: “David Moyes will remain in charge for WHUFC‘s upcoming league game against Nottingham Forest.”
In an attached article he wrote for The Athletic, Thomas revealed that while Moyes will be in the dugout for Saturday’s home match against Forest, the Scotsman is once again under pressure in regards to his position at the club.
With 23 league games played, the Hammers have won five, drawn five and lost 13, scoring 19 goals and conceding 29 in the process.
Should West Ham sack David Moyes?
To take a deeper look at where West Ham have struggled this term, they currently have the lowest percentage for shots on target (24.9%) in the division and the third-lowest total of successful tackles (195), showing how ineffective they are in and out of possession.
While the Hammers board have given Moyes time to turn the season around, the game against Forest is a perfect opportunity for the team to get back on track and show that they have what it takes to get out of the relegation zone.
However, should results fail to improve, the hierarchy may be forced into taking the 59-year-old out of his position and hiring someone better suited to take the team where they want to be.
