Everton fans were disappointed to discover that manager Marco Silva would remain at the helm for the Merseyside derby on Wednesday.
Would you welcome the return of David Moyes?

With other games going on at the same time, a defeat for the Blues could see them slip into the relegation zone.
Supporters are fearing the worst and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described the decision as “horrendous”, while another predicted that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could rest half of his first-team players and still beat Silva’s side.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Everton fans:
Horrendous decision. Essentially accepting defeat. Should’ve been sacked after norwich game. Yeah we were unfortunate against Leicester but we still lost despite playing well. If board keep him on like this cause we were unlucky then we will be in relegation battle no doubt

Klopp will rest half a team and we’ll still get battered 😖

The board continue to be an embarrassment & absolutely clueless. Get rid of Silva & our Duncan in charge for the game & at least he will instill some passion

We will get relegated this season.

Hate to say this but why bother going ? This team is low on passion for the game and the club. Harsh but true. Been a fan for 50 years and never felt like this before. I can’t be alone, surely.
