West Ham boss Pellegrini has two games to save job

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is again fighting for his job after defeat to Crystal Palace.

The Hammers' last gasp defeat to Crystal Palace on Boxing Day compiled further misery on the east London club, who are languishing in the bottom half of the table

The Times says Pellegrini has now been given the next two games as his final chance to save his job.

West Ham are just one point above the relegation zone and owners David Gold and David Sullivan will keep a close eye on the Hammers' trip to Leicester and home game against Bournemouth before making a decision.

A reunion with former boss David Moyes has long been mooted, and the Scot remains a top contender to take over at the London Stadium should the club part ways with Pellegrini.
