West Ham United have endured a terrible start to life under new boss Manuel Pellegrini, with only a win against ten-man AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup to show for their five competitive games so far.
And suffering home defeats to Bournemouth and newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers this season, confidence will be low ahead of a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday. It will be up to the Chilean to inspire a turnaround against a Toffees side yet to lose under Marco Silva.
