- David Moyes’ job has come under scrutiny after West Ham’s poor run
- The Hammers are currently 18th in the Premier League – with just four wins this year
- Reports have surfaced that Moyes could be axed if West Ham lose to Everton
- Moyes, Nuno Espirito Santo, Rafa Benitez and Sean Dyche could take the job at Everton
David Moyes will reportedly be axed as West Ham boss if the Hammers lose their crisp relegation duel with Everton.
The two Premier League contenders, who join Southampton on 15 points, meet at the London Stadium on Saturday in a game dominated by the future of Moyes and his counterpart Frank Lampard.
West Ham, 18th in the league, have won just four games all season while the Toffees have won just three.

Moyes could then succeed Everton boss Frank Lampard, whose Toffees side are struggling with relegation
Telegraph Sport understand Moyes will be sacked should West Ham lose – but the former Toffees boss could then succeed Lampard at Goodison Park.
Moyes spent more than a decade at Everton and with huge unrest at Goodison Park – he could be rushed in to help the Toffees salvage their dismal season.
Nuno Espirito Santo, Rafa Benitez and Sean Dyche were also tipped as potential replacements for Lampard – whose future is as tenuous as Moyes’.
West Ham have backed Moyes and ideally want him to be the man to turn their season around, but when the Hammers lose to a failing Everton side it may be impossible not to sack the Scot.
Everton have also backed Lampard – with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri publicly backing the Chelsea legend.

Everton fans have staged protests this season to express their dissatisfaction with the club’s board
Lampard remains a popular figure for many at Goodison, despite fans turning on the board – having saved them from relegation last season.
But with both sides facing relegation, respective bodies may be left with no choice but to find alternatives.
West Ham’s poor form comes despite Moyes’ summer backing of more than £100m – including Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca, both of whom have failed to live up to expectations.
Lampard, on the other hand, has been neglected any financial backing in the market – with Everton keenly aware of FFP rules.
Even if Moyes’ West Ham win against Everton, the Scot’s future will remain a topic of conversation.
The club’s ownership structure was brought into focus by the death of joint chairman and majority shareholder David Gold.
According to sources, if the club’s second largest shareholder Daniel Kretinsky makes a takeover bid, you would expect him to name his own managerial position.
