LONDON (AP) — Far from turning Manchester United back into title contenders, Jose Mourinho is instead matching the lows of David Moyes.
A 3-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday left United with 10 points from seven games — matching the club's previous worst English Premier League start under Moyes in 2013 immediately after Alex Ferguson's retirement.
Defending champion Manchester City is already nine points ahead of its 10th-place neighbor, which was runner-up last season.

LONDON (AP) — Arthur Masuaku apologized Sunday for spitting at an opponent during West Ham's FA Cup defeat to Wigan.

CARDIFF, Wales (AP) — Ryan Giggs was hired as coach of Wales' national soccer team on Monday, his first full-time coaching job since ending an illustrious playing career with Manchester United.

West Ham even came close to grabbing a winner when substitute Javier Hernandez hit the crossbar with a shot in the last minute.
LONDON (AP) — Chelsea's bid to retain the English Premier League title faltered again. West Ham handed the Blues their fourth loss of the season on Saturday by 1-0.
Chelsea remained 11 points behind leader Manchester City, which faces second-place Manchester United on Sunday.
"To talk about a title race after a defeat is a bit strange," Chelsea coach Antonio Conte said. "When you have this start it's impossible to think you are in the title race."
If West Ham's owners were banking on a change of manager delivering a much-needed surge of positivity, they might have underestimated the depth of disgruntlement at the struggling Premier League club.
The arrival of David Moyes might have made the atmosphere worse, if anything.
Moyes largely escaped the vitriol of the fans during his first game in charge, a 2-0 loss at Watford on Sunday. Instead, that was directed at his players and the club's hierarchy.
WATFORD, England (AP) — West Ham put in a familiar performance on Sunday despite having hired a new manager.
David Moyes's first game in charge ended in a 2-0 defeat at Watford, keeping his new club in the Premier League relegation zone.
Will Hughes scored his first goal for Watford before setting up Richarlison to end a three-match losing streak for the Hornets.
Watford moves back up to eighth. West Ham hasn't recorded a league win since September and stays 18th.
West Ham disregarded a string of failed coaching stints by David Moyes by hiring him as manager on a short-term contract Tuesday, gambling that his Premier League experience will get the team out of relegation trouble.

LONDON (AP) — Premier League club West Ham hires David Moyes as manager.
West Ham fired manager Slaven Bilic on Monday following the team's slide into the English Premier League relegation zone and was set to hand David Moyes an opportunity to rebuild his coaching reputation as the successor.

LEICESTER, England (AP) — Sunderland manager David Moyes' tough week got worse as his team lost 2-0 at resurgent champion Leicester to remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League on Tuesday.

SUNDERLAND, England (AP) — David Moyes will remain manager of Premier League club Sunderland despite telling a female reporter that she might get a "slap."

The club, which is in last place in England's top division, said it "continues to fully support David in his role as manager."
SUNDERLAND, England (AP) — Sunderland manager David Moyes "deeply regrets" telling a female BBC reporter she might get a slap.
