Everton were widely considered as dark horses to land a top six spot this season. The Toffees finished eighth in the 2018/19 Premier League standings, finishing two points ahead of Leicester City, and the final eight games of the season saw the Merseyside team rack up five wins and two draws.
However, Everton have failed to kick on from that excellent finish and find themselves sitting 15th in the table after the international break. The team has won four matches, and only broke their duck on the road recently against a Southampton team who are currently down on their luck.
It’s almost certain that a top six spot would have been the target before a ball was kicked this season and that means Marco Silva is currently shooting over par, with owner Farhad Moshiri having backed the Portuguese in the transfer market last summer, although it’s been a campaign of struggle.
Silva has been among the Sack Race favourites since the season began and it’s only natural that the best betting sites have now created a Next Everton Manager Betting market, with customers interested in speculating on who will become Silva’s replacement when he’s eventually relieved of his duties.

Next Permanent Everton Manager
The bottom line is that David Moyes is odds-on with certain operators to become the next Toffees manager. Some Evertonians would be in favour of the Scot returning, considering he had such a long and successful spell in charge at the Merseyside club.
Others might consider it a backward step seeing as the Glaswegian has failed to demonstrate his prowess since moving away from Goodison Park.
BetVictor offer 1/1 about Moyes taking the reins for a second time, with the 56-year-old having been out of work since the end of the 2017/18 season, when he had steered West Ham United away from the drop zone - only for the London club to opt for the services of Manuel Pellegrini on a longer-term basis.
Quite simply, Moyes is one of the longest-serving managers in the history of Everton Football Club and you get the impression he is waiting in the wings as a safe pair of hands should things go further awry under the current manager.
The Scot served the club as a manager between 2002-2013, transforming them from relegation material to a side capable of qualifying for the Champions League.
Moyes enjoyed some famous victories in various Merseyside derbiesand always did well with a modest budget at his disposal, something which led Sir Alex Ferguson to recommend his friend to the Manchester United board in 2013, although a spell with the Red Devils won’t be remembered fondly and the same can be said about his time at Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
Perhaps Moyes has something more to offer as a football manager. Perhaps the fact that managers like Jose Mourinho are getting further bites of the cherry in England will encourage the current favourite to land the Everton gig.
Could Mark Hughes Come in From the Cold?
Incredibly, Mark Hughes has managed six different English football teams and they have all been Premier League positions.
The Welshman was first given the task of taking charge of his national side and it was a position he enjoyed between 1999-2004, before dipping his toe in club waters by taking charge at Blackburn Rovers. His spell with Blackburn was probably the most successful of all.
Manchester City came calling, but Sparky didn’t last long and the same applied at Fulham. Then came an ugly episode at Queens Park Rangers before a longer spell with Stoke City, although a bright start soon faded - and the same could be said about his time with Southampton.
Some might think that Hughes’ card is marked, considering his later managerial stints, but the former Manchester United striker is still only 56 and his ambition means he could be among the candidates to apply for an Everton vacancy should an opening emerge.
Hughes had a brief playing spell with Everton, which lasted 18 appearances in 2000, and he is no bigger than 16/1 with Betfair to get the call, although perhaps the Toffees board would be looking for something a bit more special in the modern day.

Could Everton Be Arteta Compensation For Arsenal Loss?
Mikel Arteta is a wanted man, despite never holding a football management role. The Spaniard is working with one of the best coaches on the planet in the form of Pep Guardiola, and came close to landing the Arsenal FC manager’s position in the summer of 2018 when Arsene Wenger had finally been deposed.
Arteta missed out to Unai Emery and the Gunners might be wondering what might have been, but Everton supporters would certainly warm to the appointment of someone said to be chiefly responsible for the training sessions and player development at Manchester City, with Guardiola rating his cohort highly.
Indeed, the current Man City boss recently suggested that Arteta would be a natural successor to him at the Etihad Stadium, and perhaps that switch could occur next summer, considering that the Citizens are likely to be focused harder on winning the Champions League than ever before.
One bookmaker is as short as 8/1 about Arteta becoming the next manager of Everton instead, although perhaps the two things aren’t mutually exclusive, considering that Guardiola could then stagger things to allow his current work-mate an opportunity to take a lesser role first, before jumping up to the position.
Benitez Linked With Merseyside Move
Rafael Benitez has had more clubs than Tiger Woods when it comes to football management.
The Spaniard has been enjoying a series of leading roles since 2001, when he took charge of Valencia and rose to prominence over the next three years by steering Los Che toa La Liga title.
Then Liverpool came calling and Benitez won the Champions League with the Reds, before enjoying spells at Internazionale, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Napoli and Newcastle United.
The latter stint saw the 59-year-old drop down to the Championship with the Magpies before spending a season engineering a return to the top flight.
While there’s an obvious Liverpool connection with Benitez, perhaps the Spaniard is open to the possibility of leaving Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang and returning to Merseyside, especially as his family are still based there after his six years of managing at Anfield.
BetVictor have 12/1 about Rafa becoming a Toffee and perhaps he has miles left in the tank when it comes to managing in England, with Benitez’s reign at Newcastle only coming to an end due to disgruntlement with owner Mike Ashley, who prevented the manager from being able to strengthen sufficiently.

Marcelino Available and Waiting for New Role
Marcelino García Toral is relatively unknown in England, although you can bet on him at 20/1 with Paddy Power to become the next Everton FC manager - and it wouldn’t be a huge shock if he was installed at the Merseyside club, considering his impressive track record in Spain.
The 54-year-old has enjoyed a spate of managerial positions in his homeland since 1997 and was most recently in charge of Valencia, where he won a Copa del Rey by beating Barcelona in the final. He was sacked at the Mestalla this season, but mostly impressed during his time with Los Che and was successful with Villarreal before that.
The big risk with this appointment would be plumping for a candidate who has never managed outside Spain before, although perhaps Everton would be willing to take a punt on someone who has worked his way up through the ranks both as a player and a manager. He could be among the candidates who apply for the position should it become vacant.
