David Moyes’s job as West Ham manager remains safe, despite the defeat against Tottenham at the weekend, according to the Daily Telegraph journalist Jason Burt.
The Spurs loss leaves the Hammers in the relegation zone; one point adrift of Bournemouth and Everton after both teams secured surprise wins on Saturday.
Despite the club’s problems, West Ham’s board are not currently considering Moyes’ position and, at the moment, a result versus Nottingham Forest in their next game is not seen as crucial for the manager’s survival.
Burt claims that the London club’s hierarchy were “encouraged” by recent performances against Everton, Newcastle and Chelsea and this has given Moyes some breathing room.
Things may change if the Irons don’t start to pick up points soon. After Forest, they will face Manchester United in the FA Cup, before fixtures against Brighton and Aston Villa. They will also travel to the Etihad for a game versus Manchester City ahead of the next international break.
