Everton gives Silva chance

Everton gives Silva chance

Liverpool Everton’s management gave the last chance to the team coach Marco Silva, despite terrible results this season.

Fourteen EPL rounds later, Everton are occupying 17th place in the tournament table, having gotten closer to the relegation zone. Only two points separate the Toffees from it, but considering Southampton’s confident pace in the latest encounters, this can be not for long. Especially, when in the next round, which will take place today, their eternal opponents Liverpool will be.

Marc Silva appeared on the football radar not so long ago. The Portuguese began his career as a coach in Estoril Praia, then led Lisbon Sporting, Greek Olympiacos, and moved to England. At the Albion, Silva worked at Hull City, Watford and in 2018 moved to Everton.

At first, the results of the team went up, and they returned to the top eight. The management approved the Portuguese impulse to set a combination game to the team and allocated money for the purchase of technical football players. Thanks to this, Richarlison, Bernard, as well as some Barcelona players, with whom Everton has a good relationship, were bought.

But this season was a disaster for Everton, and the Toffees’ bosses are already thinking about dismissing Silva. The team’s game ceased to produce results, since in 14 matches they barely scored an average goal per match. This is strange enough for a team that promotes attacking combination football.

The penultimate drop for the management was the lost match to Leicester. Moreover, they were perplexed by the replacements of the coach, who, with the score 1:1, exchanged Calvert-Lewin and Alex Iwobi for Morgan Schneiderlin and Moise Keen, respectively. In injury time, Everton missed the second goal and did not receive points.

Therefore, the derby against Liverpool could be the last match for Silva in the status of Everton's coach. The game will be held today at Anfield at 21:15 London time. At the same time, bookmakers are completely on the side of the team of Jürgen Klopp, who leads the championship with a margin of 11 points from second place. The odds for Liverpool’s victory for the Reds are 1.40, for the Blues to win - 8.60, and for the draw in the match - 5.05.
