Everton has made it clear that they are ready to allow their manager Marco Silva to continue leading their team when they come up against bitter rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby.
Everton yesterday once again suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of title contenders Leicester City in the English Premier League.
In the first minutes of the game, Everton took the lead with a brilliant header by Brazilian striker, Richarlison and suddenly it looked like they were going to make it stick but goals from the ever green Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho meant that their struggles weren’t far from over.
Everton will still stick with failing Marco Silva as manager
Everton are lingering just above the relegation zone following their last-gasp defeat at Leicester on Sunday, and the pressure on Silva has ramped up even further. The result has left the team languishing down in 17th in the Premier League, just two points above the relegation zone.
Silva was at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground on Monday morning and according to Sky Sports, he took the session as normal and will be on the touchline at Anfield in midweek.
After their trip to Liverpool, they take on Chelsea at Goodison Park in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
For Marco Silva and his boys, a win against Liverpool is the major target this week on Thursday night when the two sides face off in the English Premier League.
They are just 2 points ahead of 18th placed Southampton who are also struggling in the English Premier league. No fixture could have been worse for Marco Silva and his side than a trip to immortal enemies given how Liverpool have been flying in the League.
The only loophole for Everton is the fact that Liverpool have not been playing their impressive football and have barely struggled to win some games or have had to wait till late before they could pick up three points.
So, if Marco’s side fails to pick up three points against Liverpool, will it mark it as the final days for their current head coach? Time will only tell.
