West Ham owners standing by Pellegrini

West Ham's owners are standing by manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The Mirror says after four consecutive defeats, the odds on him becoming the first Premier League manager to lose his job have been cut from 14-1 to 7-2 second favourite behind Jose Mourinho.

There is no suggestion that owners David Gold and David Sullivan will copy Crystal Palace, who jettisoned Frank de Boer after four consecutive defeats for starters 12 months ago.

But the pressure is already mounting on Pellegrini whose team face a testing sequence of fixtures after the international break with games against Everton, Chelsea and Manchester United this month.
