West Ham to stand behind David Moyes and refuse to sack him despite fan unrest amid Premier League struggles this season | The Sun

WEST HAM are reportedly set to stick with manager David Moyes despite their struggles in the Premier League.

The Hammers conceded a stoppage-time winner against Crystal Palace on Sunday as they were beaten 2-1 at the London Stadium.

West Ham fans booed their team off the pitch at the end of the game, with the club two points above the relegation zone following just four wins from their opening 14 matches.

The home supporters also jeered substitutions made by Moyes towards the end of the clash.

But, according to The Athletic, the east London outfit will keep their faith in the Scottish coach.

Moyes has guided West Ham to sixth and seventh place finishes over the past two Premier League seasons.

He also led them to a Europa League semi-final back in May – which they lost to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

The former Everton and Manchester United boss has a contract with the Hammers until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

And he hit back at the booing of fans on Sunday, in particular in response to their anger at Manuel Lanzini replacing Said Benrahma.

Speaking to BBC Sport, he said: "I thought he scored a good goal, but I don’t know if he had much of an impact after.

"There’s a lot of experts out there, isn’t there?"

Moyes' West Ham have won just one of their last five Premier League games.

And captain Declan Rice admitted after the match that the supporters were right to boo their performance.

He said: "Fans can voice their opinions. They pay their hard-earned money.

"They're probably right to boo us in a way because we weren't good enough.

"From the way I'm feeling and the way I saw the lads, I'm devastated. That was a game we had to win.

"Two big games before the World Cup and you lose one of them so you're counting on the next game.

"In the last couple of years we'd have won a game like this and been comfortable in the table.

"It's really frustrating. I feel like we're two different teams [from last season]. 

"We can keep the ball for fun in some away games and then at home we look a different team.

"It's been good in Europe but we're too inconsistent in the Premier League. We'll bounce back for sure."

West Ham are five points adrift of the top half of the table, with their final league match before the World Cup break coming at home to Leicester on Saturday.
