West Ham relegation odds after David Moyes appointment
FootyOn look at West Ham relegation odds after their David Moyes appointment until the end of the season.
West Ham United sacked Slaven Bilic and swiftly replaced him with ex-Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss Moyes for the rest of the campaign.
BetVictor quote best-price West Ham relegation odds of 5/2 for them to go down.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting the supporters, being in the stadium with them,” Moyes said after taking the Hammers job.
“I’m looking forward to them getting right behind the team and my team also. We need their support, we need everybody with us.”
Moyes took Sunderland down from the Premier League last term before resigning from the Stadium of Light.
While that relegation was inevitable following sustained struggles over several years, his Black Cats experience does little to inspire confidence.
Plenty to prove at Hammers
Moyes takes over with West Ham in the bottom three and an awful lot to prove.
Every managerial move he has made since leaving Everton hasn’t been successful.
Moyes is reunited with his ex-Old Trafford charge Javier Hernandez and the Mexico poacher netted nine Red Devils goals under the Scot.
Going into the November international break, the Hammers have scored the most Premier League goals of the current bottom six.
They have averaged a goal per game, but their division high 23 conceded explains their presence in the relegation zone.
If those West Ham relegation odds are defied, then Moyes has to work wonders with the defence.
Bilic saw his centre back options limited by injuries, so getting everyone back to fitness is a challenge.
