Everton board sticking with Marco Silva

Everton boss Marco Silva is to remain in charge for the clash with West Ham.

The 42-year old is under increasing pressure after Everton dropped into the bottom three at the weekend and disgruntled fans have been calling for change, says the Daily Mail.

A board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday though Silva is understood to have the support of majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri at least for now.

Moshiri and Silva have held a couple of conversations in recent weeks regarding the direction the team is heading and there is a general acceptance that results will have to drastically improve or change will be inevitable.

Bookmakers have installed former manager David Moyes as favourite to replace Silva with Manchester City's Mikel Arteta and Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag also touted.
