Following a 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham, a game where previously forgotten striker Cenk Tosun nicked an equaliser in the 97th minute, Everton fans are calling for the axe.
Even despite the late drama, this result now takes the Toffees to just one win in seven games, losing five of them, with a few supporters calling for their struggling manager to go.
Is Marco Silva the right man for Everton?
The result was also marred by a horrific injury to Andre Gomes midway through the second half, with Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son’s collision appearing to severely dislocate the player’s right ankle.
Gomes was then stretchered off, with the Spaniard’s terrible-looking injury being the main focus and talking point after the match.
However, a few Everton supporters don’t think the attention should be shifted from the team’s poor run of form, with a portion of them still calling for the manager to be sacked.
After the draw, Marco Silva addressed the Gomes news in a statement: “It’s a tough moment for our dressing room. Andre will have all the support he needs after what is a serious injury. I am 100% sure he’ll become stronger as a football player and as a man, because he’s a fantastic lad, a fantastic professional.”
He also went on to praise the team’s spirit after they went on to secure a leveller in the dying seconds thanks to Tosun.
Here’s how Everton fans reacted to his comments:
SILVA OUT PLEASE

Silva out, 11 points in 11 games is not good enough for any team, let alone Everton

Silva’s getting away with Murder of late, VAR then poor Gomes overshadowing how poorly he’s doing his job ….. Southampton’s first home game since the Leicester mauling will surely put pay to this Fraud. #SilvaOut #EFC
