Everton boss Marco Silva is odds-on favourite in the Premier League Sack Race.
Silva has seen his odds slashed, following their weekend home loss to Norwich City and the Portuguese head coach admits things have been difficult.
“I think it is not the main thing to talk about the situation. It is not the moment to talk about individual positions,” Silva said.
“We have to look what is best for us as a club and for myself and the players as well – but always the club has to be at the top.
“When you lose a match, the first person they look to is the manager. Football is like that.”
Now the club’s hierarchy are understood to be considering their options, with former chief David Moyes emerging as a candidate to return to the helm – should he be needed.
Sources have confirmed that they are already looking at who can takeover as caretaker manager, ahead of making a change this week.
BetVictor’s Head of antepost Fooball Michael Triffitt commented: “The Toffees are enduring a torrid season and are only 10/1 to be relegated .
“Silva was seen as the man to lead them to the promised land but it’s all turning sour and he is odds on at 4/7 to be the next top flight manager to go. Unai Emery at Arsenal and Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham are both under considerable pressure too and it will be fascinating to see if all three can survive.
“If Everton do decide a new figure is needed at the helm then former gaffer David Moyes may be asked to return and he is 6/4 market leader and crucially available now.
“Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is often linked with the bigger clubs and has been supported into 5/2 from double figure quotes whilst former fans favourite Mikel Arteta enjoyed his playing time with the club and would be welcomed back with open arms and is 8/1 with BetVictor offering 10/1 bar those front three.”
