Its a difficult time for Everton fans at the moment. Everton are coming off their worst Premier League campaign in almost two decades; they avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth last season, thanks to three wins in their final six games.
The Toffees had to part ways with Rafa Benítez in January, after a run of poor results; they brought in former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard to replace him.
Although Lampard managed to steer the Merseyside team out of the relegation zone, he has more losses than wins and draws combined.
A 16th place finish is simply not good enough for a club of the stature of Everton and Toffee fans will be hoping things drastically improve on the pitch this season.

What are the Everton odds on regulation or to go down?
7/2. Everton can be backed at 7/2 to be relegated from the Premier League this season. There are actually six teams with shorter odds than Everton so relegation this season looks unlikely.
What are Everton odds to win the Premier League?
750/1. For those who want a speculative punt then you can get a whopping 750/1 on Everton to win the Premier League this season.
Can you get odds on Everton to stay up?
1/5. Yes you can get odds on Everton to stay up, with Bet365 offering a very short price of 1/5 for Frank Lampard’s men to remain in the Premier League for another season.
That means if you put £10 on Everton to stay up you will win £2.
It’s important to point out that Lampard has lost 11 matches in 21 games in charge of Everton; he has eight wins and two draws in that 21 game stretch. With this in mind, can Everton win the Premier League title this season?
The Toffees are priced at a huge 750/1 odds to hoist the title.
This isn’t a surprise considering they have not won the title since the 1986/87 season; and they’ve consistently finished outside the top 7 for the better part of the last decade.
Interestingly enough, ‘Everton to be relegated’ pays at 7/2 odds, only six teams have shorter odds in that aspect.
This is mostly because the Toffees are coming off their worst campaign since the 2003/04 season; they finished 16th last season, registering 39 total points. Furthermore, the last time Everton finished 16th or lower, they bounced back the next season, finishing in the top 4.
Despite their poor campaign last season, Everton have not been very active in the transfer market.
The Merseyside team have brought in just three players this summer; they brought in James Tarkowski from Burnley on a free transfer, and Rúben Vinagre on loan from Sporting CP.
As a matter of fact, the highlight of Everton’s off-season moves is a £20m deal for ex-Burnley winger Dwight McNeil.
To be fair, the Toffees have the talent, with the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Demarai Gray and Alex Iwobi; however, they’ll need to strengthen their squad with more players if they intend to compete for a top 7 spot.
However, the Merseyside team last won the title in 1987, and they haven’t finished in the top 4 since the 2004/05 season.
It remains to be seen if Frank Lampard can guide this team to their 10th league title.
