Everton fans were outraged after referee Mike Dean was appointed to take charge of the Merseyside derby next month.
Would you welcome the return of David Moyes?
Silva’s reign looks like it could be brought to an end with a host of names being linked with his position in the Goodison Park dugout. His team have picked up just four wins out of their first 13 Premier League games of the campaign and have earned a reputation for having disastrous away form.

Toffees’ fans were horrified to discover that the Wirral-born official Mike Dean will be taking charge of the contest – an official who Toffees’ fans believe is a Liverpool supporter.
This will not be the first time that Dean will have taken charge of a Merseyside derby. He was the man in the middle as Everton conceded a last-minute goal to Sadio Mane and lost 1-0 in 2016.
Supporters were fuming about the news and made their opinions on Dean clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the best responses from Everton fans:
What? This has to be a wind-up! Nailed on Liverpool win then.

He has family who are LFC season ticket holders and VAR is Atkinson who despises Everton.
