Nottingham Forest beat West Ham 2-0 to pile more pressure on Moyes

Nottingham Forest registered a 2-0 victory over West Ham United in Saturday’s Premier League match as they put themselves five points clear of the drop zone. 

The hosts took the lead through Taiwo Awoniyi on the stroke of half-time before Callum Hudson-Odoi sealed full points with a brilliant late finish. 

Kalvin Phillips endured another difficult game as he received his marching orders midway through the second half for receiving two yellow cards. 

The defeat will likely bring further pressure on manager David Moyes whose defensive brand of football has been a big source of frustration for the Hammers’ fans. 

The East London outfit made a good start to the 2023-24 season, and looked on course for another European finish. 

They entered the new year on the back of three successive victories in the English top-flight, but things have gone downhill since then. 

West Ham have failed any of their eight matches in 2024 across all competitions. 

Last weekend, they suffered their heaviest home Premier League loss at the hands of Arsenal who put six unanswered goals against them at the London Stadium. 

The Hammers were expected to show a reaction today against Nottingham Forest, but supporters were once again massively disappointed. 

If things continue like this, we don’t see Moyes staying long at the London Stadium. 

The 60-year-old has done an impressive job overall since taking over as West Ham manager in 2019. 

He twice saved the club from relegation and delivered them regular European football. 

The Scottish boss also ended their long trophy drought by leading his side to the Europa Conference League title last year.
