Some West Ham United players are reportedly unhappy with manager David Moyes’ defensive approach.
According to The Guardian, the Scottish boss faces growing discontent within his squad following the humiliating 4-0 loss at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
The Hammers were absolutely battered at the Amex with Alexis Mac Allister, Joel Veltman, Mitoma and Danny Welbeck getting on the scoresheet.
The latest defeat leaves the Irons just one point above the relegation zone in the Premier League table.
However, Moyes reportedly still retains the backing of the hierarchy who believe he can turn the club’s fortunes around.
Next two matches crucial for Moyes
West Ham have plenty of quality in their squad and shouldn’t be anywhere near the relegation zone.
The Hammers spent more than £160 million last summer on several new players including Lucas Paqueta, Gianluca Scamacca and Nayef Aguerd.
However, many of the new arrivals have failed to make a huge impact.
David Moyes’ men will now travel to Cyprus to take on AEK Larnaca in the first leg of their Europa Conference League round of 16 tie on Thursday.
The Hammers will subsequently welcome Aston Villa to the London Stadium in the Premier League.
If West Ham fail to do well in their next two matches, it is hard to see Moyes staying in charge.
The Scottish boss has been given plelmty of time this season, but he has consistently failed to deliver results.
