Here are the plain facts about Everton FC going into the international break. They’re currently averaging less than a point per Premier League match and we’re now 30% of the way into the season, with the Toffees sitting in the relegation zone because they have been one of the worst sides in the division thus far.
Everton’s relegation odds of 16/1 with William Hill indicate that the Merseyside club are unlikely to be dragged into a dogfight at the foot of the table, although manager Marco Silva will know that the team’s start to the season will be regarded as unacceptable by the supporters and owner Farhad Moshiri who has invested considerable sums since taking a majority shareholding.
At the time of writing, Silva remains in charge of first-team affairs at Goodison Park and it’s likely that he’ll be given the opportunity to improve matters considering that Everton spent a long time chasing the Portuguese who was manager of Watford when they began their pursuit before the latter actually dispensed with the services of the 42-year-old.
However, a couple more defeats after the international break and surely Moshiri will act decisively and begin hunting for someone who can improve the team’s fortunes. It’s fair to say that the defence is proving unreliable and there’s a distinct lack of chances being created and goals being scored.

Next Permanent Everton Manager
Many bookmakers have a “Next Everton FC Manager” betting market and it’s currently a wide-open heat, not least because the Toffees still have Silva in charge for the time being. Paddy Power and Betfair have been offering betting odds for several weeks.
David Moyes is the 10/11 favourite with Paddy Power and it’s easy to see why the Scot could be the short-term option to replace Silva. The 56-year-old knows Everton FC as well as anyone after serving as manager between 2002-13 and is regarded as one of the most successful bosses in the history of this proud club.
However, there would clearly be supporter reservations about hiring someone who has largely proved underwhelming since leaving Goodison Park for an ill-fated spell at Manchester United which lasted just a few months before he was given the axe.
Moyes headed to Spain for a stint with Real Sociedad before returning to England and taking charge of Sunderland and West Ham, with the Scot deserving credit for arresting a slump at the London club.
Perhaps he can be a stop-gap replacement for Silva although some would question whether this move would be a particularly progressive one.
Would Arteta Leave Manchester City for Merseyside?
Mikel Arteta is currently trying to help Manchester City win a third successive Premier League title along with helping to engineer a successful Champions League campaign, although the Spaniard has clearly considered new pastures in the past and perhaps an opportunity at Goodison Park would be too good for him to turn down.
The 37-year-old is highly regarded by superior Pep Guardiola who counts on Arteta as a right-hand man at the Etihad Stadium and has recently revealed that the latter would be a natural replacement as the next Manchester City manager once the former Barcelona manager decides to step down from his position with the English champions.
However, there are no set timescales as far as this is concerned and Betfair chalk up 8/1 about Arteta becoming the next Everton FC manager instead. He came desperately close to replacing Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and the Toffees position would be slightly lower profile considering that the Merseyside club are now regarded as a mid-table side in the Premier League rather than anything else.

Has Wilder Gone Far Enough With Blades?
Chris Wilder and Sheffield United go together like Morecambe & Wise. However, there’s an argument to suggest that the 52-year-old has taken the Yorkshire club as far as he can, with the Blades likely to be involved in some kind of battle against relegation this season. Would that potentially open the door for a jump to a bigger club?
Wilder has previously threatened to walk away from Bramall Lane due to the terms of a new contract not being regarded as favourable and he’ll also be aware of the limitations at United who have achieved two promotions in the space of three seasons under his excellent reign.
Everton will have noted the meteoric rise of Sheffield United and Betfair offer 6/1 that Chris Wilder becomes the next manager at Goodison Park, with the manager showing plenty of innovation when it comes to team tactics and there was plenty to like about the team’s recent 2-0 win against the Toffees.
Jose Mourinho To Take The Reigns?
There’s another former Manchester United boss not far down the betting in the Next Permanent Everton Manager betting market and Jose Mourinho would certainly arrive at Goodison Park to popular acclaim.
The self-styled Special One has been out of work since being axed at Old Trafford in December 2018 although he has kept himself in the public eye and might relish this kind of opportunity.
It’s clear that while Mourinho is regarded as one of the most successful managers of all time, the 56-year-old’s reputation was somewhat tarnished after his two-and-a-half seasons with the Red Devils, even if there was a Europa League success and a second-placed finish in the top flight as part of the package.
Paddy Power have 14/1 about the former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach replacing Marco Silva and causing a typical stir in English football by arriving at Goodison Park.
Next Premier League Team Manager Odds
Phil Neville On The Drift
The England Women team were going along swimmingly under Phil Neville until fairly recently. After the 2019 World Cup, the Lionesses have fallen into something of a slump and they have now gone five games without a victory, with the Head Coach of the side admitting that he’s now being closely judged by the FA who might consider to end the partnership if results don’t improve.
However, Neville might not be too concerned should he step down from this role considering that former peers such as Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard have walked into high-profile managerial roles with even less coaching experience than the former Manchester United defender. The 42-year-old also made 242 appearances for Everton and will have aspirations to manage them.
Paddy Power did seem to think that he’s a really viable candidate and quoted 7/2 that the younger Neville brother getting the nod at Goodison Park. However, you can back him at 33/1 with Paddy Power as I type and this clearly shows his stock is starting to depreciate.
You can imagine him interviewing well if the position became vacant, but would a lack of club management count against him? Is his reign with the Lionesses going to go down in flames?
Howe, Dyche and Benitez Other Names in the Frame
Eddie Howe (16/1 with Betfair) has been linked with any number of managerial vacancies thanks to the sterling work being done at Bournemouth, with the 41-year-old having steered the Cherries into the Premier League and then succeeded in keeping them as a top flight fixture for several seasons.
It’s possible that Howe would be reluctant to leave the Vitality Stadium considering he is Mr Bournemouth after making over 250 appearances for the Dorset club as a player before enjoying two separate stints as a manager, with the most recent of these seeing him preside over 324 matches.
Sean Dyche (33/1 with Betfair) replaced Howe at Burnley and he’s in a similar boat at Turf Moor considering that he’s spun gold out of straw at the Lancashire outfit. He’s another manager to have beaten Everton this season and would need firm assurances from any prospective new employer before leaving his current position.
Rafael Benitez (10/1 with Paddy Power) is someone who has obviously strong links with Liverpool FC and that alone might be enough to rule him out of the running should Silva make way at Everton, although the Spaniard was immensely popular at Newcastle when steadying the ship at St James’ Park and perhaps he could be persuaded to return to England from China if the price was right.
