Everton boss Marco Silva is now the odds on favourites to be the next Premier League manager to get sacked following his side’s terrible start to the campaign.
The Toffees currently sit in the relegation zone with just a measly seven points out of eight games and will welcome London side West Ham on Saturday in what will be a crucial game for Silva.
The Portuguese manager has labelled the fixture as a ‘must-win’ and it is easy to see why considering the fact that his side are on a four-game losing streak in the Premier League.
So far only one manager has been sacked in the league and that was Javi Gracia who’s Watford side are at the bottom of the table.
There have been many managers who are linked with the sack, but it is not as prevalent as it is for Silva who has failed to deliver on the hype that he had when he joined the Merseyside outfit.
Odds of Next Manager To Be Sacked
1/1 – Marco Silva
3/1 – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
5/1 – Mauricio Pochettino
14/1 – Ralph Hassenhutl
16/1 – Steve Bruce
16/1 – Quique Sanchez Flores
Silva joined Everton in May 2018 following the sacking of former England manager Sam Allardyce, who the Portuguese had a small problem with.
The 42-year-old was heavily touted by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri and was initially the first choice to replace Ronald Koeman back in 2017. However, Moshiri was unable to pry Silva out of Watford who blocked the move.
With Silva doing a fantastic job in his first season with the Hornets, it was easy to see why Moshiri identified the coach to become the man to help push Everton into the Champions League places.
With Silva’s arrival, it seemed like Everton could finally push into the top six and challenge the elite especially given that the owner was looking to invest a huge sum in order to achieve their ambitions.
The 2018/19 season was a season intended for a small rebuild as the departure of Allardyce and scout Steve Walsh meant that Silva had to usher in a new culture to the club.
The Toffees spent £90m on acquiring talents such as Richarlison, Yerry Mina, Lucas Digne and some players on loan such as Kurt Zouma and Andre Gomes.
Despite the huge investment, Everton ended the season in 8th place which was deemed to be a failure considering the fans and the hierarchy expect the club to at least finish a place higher.
With that season essentially being a rebuilding season, it was expected that this season that Everton could challenge sides such as Chelsea and Manchester United as they were in a huge rebuilding phase.
Moshiri even backed Silva in the market with the signings of Alex Iwobi, Moise Kean, Jean Philippe Gbamin and Gomes on a permanent all totalling over £100m.
The loss of Idrissa Gueye to Paris Saint-Germain has however seemed to be a key mistake and a huge reason as to why Silva’s side have been struggling.
That being said, Silva has shown his managerial prowess in the Premier League with Watford but has not reached the same heights at Everton.
With just two wins out of eight in the league, the pressure is hugely on Silva especially considering the huge money that has been invested into his squad.
Former Everton manager Ronald Koeman was sacked at the start of the 2017/18 season when his side had two wins out of nine so anything but a win against West Ham will potentially mean that Silva will fall to the same fate.
