West Ham are considering replacing manager David Moyes if they lose at home to Everton on Saturday.
Moyes is under pressure with his side taking just one point from their last seven league games.
While it is conceded that Moyes has done well, expectations are higher after West Ham spent £160m in last summer’s transfer window.
They are currently ranked 18th, and the only goal difference keeps them from bottom.
In the past two seasons, West Ham has finished seventh and sixth respectively under the leadership of Moyes.
Analysis: Favor for Moyes’ results running out?
Sky Sports’ Ron Walker:
“West Ham have been more patient with David Moyes than many of the clubs that funded their transfer spend last summer.
“The Scot’s performance against odds over the past few years has won fans from the stands and boardrooms of the London Stadium and made his historic run to the semi-finals of the Europa League.
“However, progress has been hampered so badly this season that Moyes and the Hammers are hoping to succeed with a player they believe can pursue European football, to the extent that the manager can be paid with his work.
“Lucas Paqueta showed his quality in an instant, but many expected Moyes to get more from the club’s record signing.
“Injuries to other players, notably Naif Agde, have made it more difficult for the manager to build momentum in his squad, but there is also a sense that he is not clear on how to get the best out of this growing squad. good level.
“West Ham fans have been frustrated by formation changes and surprising personnel choices. It took them time to develop into David Moyes, but they will lose patience if they are winless in eight games on Saturday.”
