The axe is reportedly looming over Everton manager Marco Silva’s head after he saw his side suffer a last gasp loss at Leicester City last weekend. That defeat has left the Toffees in 17th place and just 2 points above the dreaded drop zone.
Silva’s men were rather unfortunate to lose that game at the Kingpower, given that they played well for the best part of an hour after Richarlison’s first half strike. However, Kelechi Iheanacho’s introduction saw him set up Jamie Vardy for the equalizer before scoring the winner himself deep into injury time.
To make matters worse, Everton’s next league fixture will be a trip across town to face their more illustrious neighbours, Liverpool.
Based on reports, the club could be looking to Eddie Howe, David Moyes or Rafael Benitez to take charge if they were to decide to sack Silva.
