West Ham slammed for ‘disgraceful’ Chelsea collapse as pressure grows on Moyes


West Ham have been accused of downing tools under manager David Moyes following their ’embarrassing’ and ‘disgraceful’ performance against Chelsea.

The Irons trailed 3-0 by half-time, with goals from Cole Palmer, Conor Gallagher and Noni Madueke doing the initial damage. It didn’t get any better two minutes after the restart, as Chelsea striker Nicolas Jackson got in on the act to compound Moyes’ misery and then scored again late on to make it a rousing 5-0 win.

West Ham are in talks to replace Moyes at the end of this season, despite there still being no confirmation that he’ll be leaving his post when his contract expires in June. Former Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui is currently the frontrunner, with Mirror Football understanding that an agreement is close to being reached.

Moyes’ four-and-a-half-year tenure will end on a sour note if the Irons’ dismal display at Stamford Bridge is anything to go by, with Sky Sports pundits Jamie O’Hara and Clinton Morrison slamming his players. “West Ham are on the beach,” ex-Premier League striker Morrison claimed.

“It’s just embarrassing the way they’re playing at the moment, they’re not enough making a challenge or anything, it looks like they’ve just downed tools… You’ve gotta keep going until the end of the season. It’s not like Chelsea have been fantastic. West Ham have been terrible.”

Former Tottenham midfielder O’Hara followed up by saying: “It’s disgraceful actually, it’s shocking what they’re producing. You’ve got West Ham fans travelling to see that game, a big game, a huge game for the football club, a London derby. They’re walking about.”
