-Premier League table is already taking shape after second round of matches this campaign
– David Moyes has been tipped as the first manager to be sacked this season
– The West Ham boss has failed to win any of his side’s first two matches this campaign
West Ham United manager David Moyes could be the first Premier League boss to be sacked this season.
The Hammers have suffered back-to-back defeats to Newcastle United and Arsenal – conceding four goals and scoring just once in the process.
Moyes men are already swimming in the relegation zone – sitting just one point above Fulham, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion.
Their next five fixtures will now be against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, and Liverpool, and these games could decide his future at the club.
The 57-year-old has now been listed by bookmakers to become the first manager to be sacked in the Premier League at odds of 2/1.

SunSport quoting Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “West Ham’s fixture list doesn’t exactly favour David Moyes. “There’s every chance he’ll be out of the door by the end of October if the latest odds are anything to go by.”
Scott Parker brought Fulham back to the English topflight but his results after his side’s first two matches do not show he wants to keep his job at the Craven Cottage.
The 39-year-old is second after Moyes to be sacked this campaign with the odds of 5/1 by the bookies after a winless start.
Jose Mourinho comes in third on the list with odds of 6/1 to get sacked having lost one and won another one in his first two fixtures in the 2020-21 season.
West Brom boss Slaven Bilic and Crystal Palace handler Roy Hodgson come in fourth and fifth respectively at odds 8/1 and 10/1.
Bioreports earlier reported that Jurgen Klopp was said to have lashed out at Liverpool stars for celebrating Andreas Christensen’s red card during his side’s 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old defender was handed a marching order just before halftime after stopping Sadio Mane from a convincing goalscoring chance.
Central referee Paul Tierney had initially given him a warning card but a second look from the VAR monitor rescinded the decision and made it a straight red.
