West Ham boss David Moyes accepts his job under scrutiny

West Ham boss David Moyes accepts his job is under pressure.

Reports have suggested Moyes' future could come under scrutiny if the Scot cannot yield an improvement from his side during what looks like a relatively favourable run of fixtures.

On Saturday, the Hammers host fellow strugglers Wolves before games against Fulham, Southampton and Bournemouth, albeit there is also a trip to Liverpool to navigate.

Speaking at Friday's pre-match press conference, Moyes said: “I think if you look back a couple of years, if you said West Ham had gone this far up the table you'd say that's really good.

“We want to challenge there, we want to stay there. We haven't got off to as good a start as we've wanted – we've played more games than any other Premier League club, we started the season with one fit centre back and we're trying to integrate seven or eight players, so there are reasons.

“But I know I'm judged on results and they need to get better."
