David Moyes looks certain to be sacked should we lose against Everton but according to the Telegraph the Scot could immediately find himself installed as favourite to succeed Frank Lampard.
Saturday’s game between the clubs is huge for both managers with the 28 year okd unlikely to survive a defeat.
West Ham have already drawn up a provisional short list of replacements while remaining desperate for Moyes to turn things around.
Nuno Espirito Santo, Rafael Benitez and Sean Dyche are all viewed as potential fire-fighters for West Ham, but the club would rather only commit to such an appointment until the end of the season.
Carlos Corberan remains a possible option after producing a remarkable turn around West Bromwich Albion’s Championship season.
A senior club insider has revealed that he is greatly admired whilst adding that it is a big leap from the Championship to the Premier League.
Moyes is known to retain admirers inside the club and his experience in lifting both Everton and West Ham away from relegation danger in the past would be attractive.
Lampard himself saved Everton from relegation last season and remains popular with his players and the club’s fans, which has no doubt influenced Moshiri’s backing.
The Everton game is now rated as pivotal ahead of a tough run of league Hammers fixtures in which we face Newcastle United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
