West Ham board standing by Moyes

West Ham are backing manager David Moyes to pull them out of their current slump in form.

The Hammers lost 2-0 at home to Leicester on Saturday.

The result left them 16th in the Premier League, just a point above the relegation zone.

West Ham have now collected just four points from their past six games, well below expectations after a £150m summer outlay on the likes of Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca.

However, while there is concern over the form of the team, senior sources at the club believe Moyes deserves the right to turn the situation around, says BBC Sport.

It has not been forgotten that West Ham were teetering on the brink of relegation when the Scot returned to the club in December 2019.

Moyes pulled the Hammers away from trouble and then secured European football through their league position in successive seasons for the first time in their history, finishing sixth and then seventh.
