Everton ‘considering changing manager’

According to Sky Sports News, Everton are considering “changing their manager” before Sunday afternoon’s game against Leicester City. Some outlets are reporting that Marco Silva will be “sacked within hours” with the Daily Mirror also claiming he will be immediately replaced by David Moyes.

This comes following another poor performance at the weekend as the Toffees lost 2-0 at home to relegation candidates, Norwich. During the game, the Blues fans sarcastically joined in with a chant from the Norwich fans as they taunted Silva with a chorus of “you’re getting sacked in the morning”.

After the game, Everton supporters reportedly confronted owners Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright – demanding the removal of Silva. Following on from the game, Everton sit 15th in the Premier League table with the potential to drop to 16th following the MNF game at Villa Park this evening.

Everton looking for new manager again?

Current favourite to take over at Goodison, as mentioned above, is David Moyes. Sat at 5/4, the Scot is hotly tipped to return to the club where he brought much success over the course of 11 years between 2002 and 2013 – consistently playing in Europe. Since then, his career has taken a somewhat sour turn with failed spells at Real Sociedad, Manchester United, West Ham and Sunderland.

Boyhood Everton fan and current Bournemouth manager, Eddie Howe, currently sits as second favourite with odds at 3/1. David Unsworth is third at 7/1 with Mikel Arteta, Rafael Benitez and Mauricio Pochettino coming in behind.

One thing is for sure, whoever gets the job will need to hit the ground running. Everton’s next five fixtures in the league see them face Leicester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.

Talk about a baptism of fire…
