Pundit suggests when David Moyes could be sacked amid 'massive' West Ham claim

Noel Whelan has claimed West Ham must pick up six points from their next three fixtures in order to secure David Moyes’ future at the club.

The former Leeds striker was speaking exclusively to Football Insider ahead of the Irons’ next league fixtures against Wolves, Fulham, and Southampton.

West Ham slumped to a 1-0 away defeat at Everton on Sunday (18 September) – meaning they have picked up just four points from their opening seven games.

However, the Hammers have won their opening two group games in the Europa Conference League.

Moyes was backed with no fewer than eight first-team additions during the summer window – including club-record signing Lucas Paqueta.

As per Transfermarkt, West Ham had the third-highest transfer spend this summer (£163.8million), behind Chelsea and Man United.

Whelan accused Moyes of not knowing his best attack at present after the signings of Maxwel Cornet and Gianluca Scamacca.

He told Football Insider’s Ewan Kingsbury: “These are a massive three games coming up.

“Moyes was very honest in his interview after the Everton game, he said they didn’t do enough to win.

“They had opportunities, but they had to be more clinical. They haven’t found the right combination up front just yet either.

“He keeps chopping and changing. I don’t think he knows his best front line himself at the moment.

“Players like Jarrod Bowen aren’t hitting the mark at the moment – and all of these things are contributing to their struggles at the moment.

“Moyes will be looking at these games now, Wolves, Fulham, and Southampton – and thinking that he needs maximum points out of at least two of those games in order to be comfortable.”
