Toffees considering David Moyes or Eddie Howe to replace Marco Silva at Goodison

Everton are reportedly set to make the second managerial change of the Premier League season by sacking Marco Silva and replacing him with either David Moyes or Eddie Howe.

Silva, 42, has overseen a horrendous start to the 2019/20 campaign at Goodison Park, with the Toffees having lost seven out of their opening 13 matches, leaving them 15th and only four points above the relegation zone. The pressure cranked up on the Portuguese at the weekend as they fell to a poor 2-0 defeat to newly-promoted Norwich City at home.

Supporters appeared to turn on Silva following the defeat and reports from Sky Sports News suggest that the hierarchy are considering making a change, with Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe and former Toffees manager David Moyes at the top of the potential shortlist to take over.

Silva was only appointed on Merseyside in the summer of 2018 and led the club to an eighth-placed finish in his first full season in charge.

Meanwhile, should former boss Moyes return, he would hope to emulate the success of his first stint at the club. In charge for 11 years before departing for Manchester United, he led the Toffees to nine top-half Premier League finishes.

Current boss Silva is now the most fancied boss in the Premier League to leave his post at odds of 1/4 with William Hill.
