Everton have now slipped down into the relegation berths in the Premier League, Marco Silva’s men losing 1-0 at Burnley on Saturday afternoon thus extending their losing league run to four games. Indeed the Toffees have won just two and lost five of their eight league outings this season and as such, the leading bookmakers have Silva chalked-in as odds-on favourite at 8/11 to be next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

As things stand, the Everton boss will remain in charge at Goodison Park after the international break, however the 42-year-old’s position will be under serious scrutiny by the Toffees hierarchy and the outcome of the match with West Ham United on 19th October could prove pivotal in determining his future with the club.

Indeed Silva has already labelled this match a ‘must-win’ with the side having collected just seven points from their eight games to date. This dismal run has included defeats to newly-promoted sides such as Sheffield United and Aston Villa.

With Newcastle United having surprisingly beaten Manchester City and hauled themselves out of the bottom three, Everton have filled their place in the relegation zone ahead of the international break. Bad timing for Marco Silva, less so for Steve Bruce!
