Everton Sacks Marko Silva


           


Everton has sacked Marco Silva after Wednesday's 5-2 defeat at Liverpool in the Merseyside derby which left them 18th in the Premier League standing.

Everton confirmed his departure on Thursday evening after loads of talks with club owner Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright at their Finch Farm training ground.

Duncan Ferguson is set to take temporary charge of the first team ahead of Saturday's game against Chelsea with Everton saying "they look to confirm a new permanent manager as soon as possible".

Silva arrived in summer of 2018 and led Everton to an eighth-place finish last season - but they are currently on a run of one win in six and have just 14 points from 15 Premier League games this season.

Everton has remained a regular team in the English Premier League since 1954. But concern is  growing over a possible fall from the elite division after dropping into the bottom three for the first time since April 1999.
             
A number of candidates are being considered to replace Silva with former manager David Moyes one of the names on the list.

The Scot, who previously managed Everton from 2002-2013, has been out of work since leaving West Ham in the summer of 2018.

Everton faces a daunting run of fixtures over the festive period - hosting Chelsea on Saturday and also facing Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City in their next six league games, before travelling to Anfield again to face Liverpool in the FA Cup third round.
