Manuel Pellegrini spent close to 100 million pounds during the summer transfer window but his team have failed to pick up even a single point in their first four games of the new season.
And this has not gone down well with the Hammers fans as many of them want Manuel Pellegrini to be sacked.
But the management have decided to stand by their manager atleast for the time being and this game against Everton might just be the final throw of the dice for Pellegrini.
The fans believe that it will be tough to come out of Goodison Park with three points but football pundit Paul Merson believes that the Hammers will pick up their first win of the season thanks to Everton’s long injury list.

Talking to Sky Sports, Paul Merson said: “Woooah. Massive match.
“If West Ham get beaten here, they could be up against it. Look at their next two fixtures: Chelsea and Manchester United. They could start the season with seven straight defeats!
“However, Everton have got a lot of players missing for this one. And in fairness to West Ham, they could have beaten Arsenal and Wolves with a little more luck. Score draw.”
Everton have a number of first-team regulars sidelined for the West Ham clash with the likes of Michael Keane and Yerry Mina missing out with injuries.

Theo Walcott picked up a rib injury just before the international break and is likely to miss out on Sunday’s clash while summer signing Richarlison remains unavailable due to suspension.
Seamus Coleman suffered a stress fracture on his foot on international duty with Ireland and he too is expected to miss the clash vs West Ham.
On the other hand, Manuel Pellegrini has a perfectly fit squad and his only concern will be with Jack Wilshere who is nursing an ankle injury and has not taken part in a couple of training sessions during the week.
After Everton, West Ham United take on Chelsea and Manchester United back to back so clearly if the Hammers fail to register a win against the Toffees then Manuel Pellegrini should start packing his bags.
