David Moyes tells David Unsworth to leave Everton if denied full-time job

Leighton Baines and Michael Keane could join the ever-growing injury list at Goodison Park ahead of Wednesday's

And with the Toffees back in talks with former England boss Sam Allardyce, Unsworth's chances of landing the top job are nearly certainly gone.

"If he doesn't take the Everton job, I think I would be telling Unsy to go and manage somewhere and earn your corn", Moyes told reporters ahead of West Ham's Premier League trip to Everton on Wednesday.

West Ham boss David Moyes says that club captain Mark Noble is capable of rallying the Hammers and insists the midfielder reacted well to being left out of the team against Leicester City last week. I want a clean sheet and a win when I go back to Goodison.

"I still believe the best thing to do is to go out and trust yourself to win a few games wherever you go".

With his hopes of being named as the lasting successor to Koeman now seemingly vanquished, Moyes, who will look to heap yet more misery on his former club when fellow strugglers West Ham visit Merseyside on Wednesday night (29 November), believes Unsworth's next step should be to try to kick-start his managerial career in the Football League rather than return to his previous post.

'I think one way or another David Unsworth will still be hoping he will still be Everton manager, and why should he not be?' Moyes said.

The recently appointed boss spoke about the need to "put in the hard miles" as the young look to build on Friday's 1-1 draw at the London Stadium.

The pressure had been building from the previous season on the Croatian and the Hammers made a decision to bite the bullet after West Ham's 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool on November 4.

"It wasn't anything to do with making a statement", he said.

"He responded as you would expect, the right way, but he also wants to play and be part of the team".

"He will certainly be part of the squad at Everton".
