Managers who could be a better choice than David Moyes for West Ham United

5) Ronald Koeman The Dutchman’s reputation may have been tarnished to an extent due to his sacking at Everton, but in fairness, things were not going to be as smooth just by spending extravagantly in the summer as the Merseyside club had. Despite their spending, the club did not buy an appropriate replacement for the departed hitman Romelu Lukaku and as such, the Toffees failed to gel cohesively without a proper striker in the side.

At Sunderland, Moyes made the mistake to admit that Sunderland had a bleak chance of surviving which resulted in a loss of confidence in both the players and fans. He surely should not do that at West…

Chelsea ease past Manchester United The scoreline might not reflect the actual scenario, but Chelsea was rarely threatened as Manchester United looked toothless in front. United started with positive intent and looked a compact side in the opening 10 minutes, but Chelsea started to assert their dominance as Cesc Fabregas began to exploit a surprisingly nervous United back line. Playing in behind Morata and Hazard, Fabregas was a constant thorn in United’s throat and dinked in few delicious chips over the United defence spotting Morata’s runs. However, the Blues had…
