West Ham United Manuel Pellegrini could make four changes for the trip to Everton on Sunday.

The Chilean has endured a torrid start to life at West Ham.

Four defeats from four Premier League games so far tells its own story.

The Hammers are bottom with zero points and face a daunting fixture list.

After Everton on Sunday, West Ham take on Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in three of their next four.

There are no two ways about it, the Hammers have to pull a rabbit out of the hat somewhere.

Away defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal were not unexpected.

But dismal performances in home losses to Bournemouth and Wolves have done the real damage.

Pellegrini has been made second favourite for the sack.


Supporters and pundits have been highly critical of his tactical approach and recruitment.

West Ham have looked woefully short of pace all over the pitch and have been exposed playing with four at the back.

Pellegrini has to change something.

And the former Man City boss looks set to make FOUR changes to the side that started last time out against Wolves when West Ham travel to Goodison Park.

Pablo Zabaleta in for Ryan Fredericks

West Ham need experience to guide them through this rough patch and they don’t come much more experienced than Pablo Zabaleta. Ryan Fredericks has struggled desperately since his move from Fulham and was dreadful against Wolves. The Argentine will come in for his one.

Mark Noble in for Carlos Sanchez

When West Ham signed 32-year-old Aston Villa, Fiorentina and Espanyol flop Sanchez on deadline day it left fans scratching their heads. Anyone watching his performance against Wolves could see why. Sanchez made a horrendous error in the dying moments to gift Wolves the game and will surely be replaced by Mr West Ham Mark Noble after his return from injury.

Declan Rice in for Robert Snodgrass

In an effort to free up Jack Wilshere to play further forward Pellegrini could bring Declan Rice back into the side to sit alongside Noble. Snodgrass has been a surprise favourite of Pellegrini so far but has proved what West Ham fans already know, works hard but not good enough.

Andriy Yarmolenko in for Michail Antonio

Yarmolenko finally got two monkeys off his back during the international break. The Ukraine star completed his first 90 minutes since January and bagged a first goal since December. West Ham fans have been desperate to see him start after impressing in cameos from the bench. And he will finally start a Premier League game for his new club, coming in for Michail Antonio, who has looked a shadow of his former self so far this season.
