The pressure is building on Everton manager Ronaldo Koeman after the team suffered their fourth straight loss on Sunday. It capped off a terrible week for the Merseyside outfit, who gave up seven goals without reply in losses to Atalanta in the Europa League and Manchester United in the Premier League.
Everton have not scored in their last four matches in all competitions, and despite spending heavily in the summer transfer market, the team have been unable to gel under Everton manager Koeman.
According to Sky Bet, Koeman is now 11/4 to be sacked by the Toffees’ management. Following last Thursday’s Europa League loss, Koeman was 8/1 to go next, those odds have changed, but West Ham’s Slaven Bilic still leads the sack race at 15/2.
Everton supporters have called for Koeman to be replaced and there is plenty of dissatisfaction growing a Goodison Park under Koeman.
BBC’s Danny Murphy has suggested that Koeman needs to change his team to get more out of his side. Wayne Rooney has been Everton’s only goal scorer this season, but since his goal against Manchester City in match two, Rooney’s form has resembled his final days at Old Trafford.
There have been some names floated around to take over the Everton manager job, although reports of a new man taking over have been muted to this point. Former Aston Villa manager Robert Di Matteo and former Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew are thought to be candidates. However, Burnley’s Sean Dyche and even former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel could be interviewed, if Everton sack Koeman.
Everton face Sunderland in the English League Cup on Wednesday before taking on Bournemouth in the Premier League at the weekend.
