Avram Grant is unlikely to be on the touchline on Yom Kippur when West Ham play at Stoke.
The manager's team is in trouble. After only three games at the start of the season, West Ham have no points.
Mr Grant, who was in Israel last week, was tight-lipped about his Yom Kippur plans, but it is thought he will not travel to Stoke.
The West Ham boss, although not religious, has always observed Yom Kippur in the past.
