The Portuguese had been under intense pressure since a home defeat by Norwich on November 23 and that was followed by losses against Leicester and, on Wednesday, a 5-2 hammering by Liverpool that proved the final straw.

The Toffees have now slipped into the relegation zone following their 5-2 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday evening.”It was a bad game for us and a really bad night for us as well,’ Silva said after the loss against Everton’s Merseyside rivals.”They deserved the three points, no doubt, and we were not good enough. At this level you cannot concede the five goals the way we conceded them. We should do better, be more brave and win some challenges.”

The forward has scored twice in his first two Everton starts – admitting he’s surprised even himself by converting with his head in successive matches – and smoothly bedded into Marco Silva’s side following his deadline-day switch from Arsenal.
