David Moyes under pressure after Arsenal’s 6-0 mauling of West Ham

West Ham United suffered one of their worst defeats at the weekend as Arsenal put an unanswered six goals against them. 

This was the Hammers’ heaviest home Premier League loss and joint-heaviest of all time. 

The scoreline was 0-0 until the 32nd minute when William Saliba rose above a crowded West Ham box to head in from close-range. 

Alphonse Areola clumsily brought down Bukayo Saka to concede a penalty, which was easily converted by the England international. 

The Gunners struck two more quick goals through Gabriel Megalhaes and Leandro Trossard before the interval. 

If the London Stadium crowd expected a reaction from their team in the second-half, they were hugely disappointed. 

Saka bagged his second goal of the match in the 63rd minute by drilling a low shot into the bottom-right corner.   

And then Declan Rice made it 6-0 through a sensational long-range effort into the top-left corner. 

Sunday’s result at the London Stadium means the Hammers are now eighth in the Premier League table, which is not too bad for a mid-table club. 

They are still ahead of Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

However, David Moyes faces intense scrutiny from supporters who are very unhappy with his defensive brand of football. 

The Scottish boss has done incredible work, saving them twice from relegation, delivering them regular European football and also ending their trophy drought by leading them to the Europa Conference League success. 

But fans also want an attractive, attacking brand of football, which Moyes has failed to deliver so far. 

The 60-year-old’s contract will expire in the summer and there are suggestions that he will not be handed an extension by the hierarchy. 

However, we believe that how the Hammers perform over the following months will ultimately decide the future of Moyes in East London.
