David Moyes on the verge of sack at West Ham United – Four replacements lined up

David Moyes could be sacked this weekend if West Ham United lose to Everton, according to a report by The Telegraph.

Moyes returned to West Ham in December 2019, replacing Manuel Pellegrini. In his first season back at the London Stadium, he helped guide his team away from relegation danger.

The following two seasons brought about incredible success for the Hammers. They qualified for Europe in back-to-back campaigns and also reached a Europa League semi-final.

However, this term has not been so positive. They currently sit inside the relegation zone, having picked up just 15 points from their 19 league outings.

And, according to The Telegraph, this weekend’s fixture against fellow relegation strugglers Everton could be Moyes’ last game in charge.

The club are reportedly ready to pull the trigger on the Scotsman should they lose, with the likes of Sean Dyche, Rafael Benitez, Nuno Espirito Santo and Carlos Corberan all lined up as potential replacements.

Dyche has been out of work since April last year when he was sacked by Burnley after almost ten years in charge. During that time, he achieved two promotions to the Premier League and even qualified for Europe in 2018. However, he was also relegated in 2015 and was likely to take them down before his dismissal last year.

Benitez has plenty of experience in English football, albeit with mixed results. He was popular during his stints with Liverpool and Newcastle United – winning the Champions League with the former – but didn’t receive such acclaim at Chelsea or Everton.

Nuno is currently in charge of Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad, sitting in third place. He won the Championship title and twice finished in seventh place with Wolverhampton Wanderers, but was a disaster at Tottenham Hotspur.

As for Corberan, he is viewed as a long-term option. The Spaniard is yet to coach in the English top flight but has earned plenty of recognition for his work in the Championship.

Corberan took Huddersfield Town to within one game of promotion, losing in the play-off final to Nottingham Forest. He then took over at West Bromwich Albion, guiding them from 23rd to sixth in just three months.
