West Ham will not sack Moyes despite dropping into the bottom three

West Ham United have no plans to sack manager David Moyes after dropping into the relegation zone, reports the Telegraph.

The Hammers suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur yesterday.

It was their 13th loss of the campaign, and they dropped down to 18th place in the Premier League.

West Ham are just a point off safety ahead of their next game against Nottingham Forest.

Moyes was close to losing his job last month before a 2-0 win over Everton saved him.

However, a defeat to Forest is unlikely to cost him his job as the Hammers board are fully behind their manager.

They have been encouraged by recent performances, including the draws against Chelsea and Newcastle United.

West Ham also booked a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup after a 2-0 win against Derby County.

They face Manchester United on March 1 and will be gunning for victory against the red-hot Red Devils.

Moyes will be keen to win on Saturday against Steve Cooper’s side first. Forest have won just five points and one game more than the Hammers.

West Ham spent £165 million last summer and were tipped to challenge for Europe.

They are the only club in the bottom six not to have changed manager this season. The London club face Brighton & Hove Albion, Aston Villa, Manchester City, Southampton and Fulham after the FA Cup game.

The results will have a huge say on Moyes’ future, as West Ham cannot afford to get relegated.
