Moyes fears for Silva's job at Everton

Former Everton manager David Moyes fears for Marco Silva's job after defeat to Sheffield United.

Silva's side now sit 14th in the Premier League table after six games in which they have scored five goals and conceded nine.

Pundit Charlie Nicholas told Sky Sports: "I've been speaking to David Moyes and a couple of Everton fans and they were saying they always feel they're two or three bad results away from this manager being strangled out of this club.

"But he (Silva) has to be very careful now. What he's got coming up is dangerous.

Everton are away to Sheffield Wednesday in the cup midweek, then Manchester City at home, then Burnley away.

"This is a tough time for Silva to get through this period. The crowd left with about 10 minutes to go, they emptied the place.

"I honestly don't know what they're trying to achieve. I've said that since day one. You have to identify what you're buying. It still looks like the set up when Wayne Rooney was there.

"Everything doesn't seem to fit in right. The balance is wrong."
