West Ham United s Scottish manager David Moyes reacts at the end of the English FA Cup fifth round football match between Manchester United and West Ham at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on March 1, 2023. - Manchester United won 3 - 1 against West Ham. AFP
The away supporters chanted, “You don’t know what you’re doing” and “Sacked in the morning” to Moyes in the second half as West Ham extended its winless away run in the league to 11 matches with a feeble display.
The team is in 16th place in the 20-team league, two points above the relegation zone.
It was another case of the curse of Brighton for West Ham, with Moyes’ team still to beat the Seagulls in the league and leaving Amex Stadium empty-handed for the 12th time.
A penalty from Alexis Mac Allister, tap-ins for Joel Veltman and Kaoru Mitoma, and a late strike from Danny Welbeck did the damage.
Compared to Moyes, Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has no such problems. He watched from the stands with his feet up while serving a touchline ban for his red card in the tunnel following the loss to Fulham two weeks ago.
